Invitation to apply for "Participatory methods training courses" 10-13.02 and 17-20.02.2020

People often come together to work, discuss, plan, evaluate, solve problems or share experiences in a workshop. Investing time and thought in the design and preparation as well as in the facilitation of the workshop increases its effectiveness and will more likely lead to results.

Date: 10.02.–13.02.2020 (group B) 17.02.–20.02.2020 (group A)

Trainer: Buchholz, Holländer

This course is very hands-on in character and will emphasize how to plan, design and conduct participatory workshops with simple but effective tools and techniques. Together we will create our own “workshop facilitation toolbox” and reflect on how to use and adapt methods according to different objectives, contexts and phases of interactive workshops. We will also practice some methods and tools for designing your own participatory workshop concepts.

Please note that this course is open for up to 5 external guest participants per group, preferably belonging to the international refugee community in Berlin.


Guest participants should have a good command of the English language and some previous experience in workshop facilitation as well as motivation to pass on the new skills to others.


By the end of the course participants:

  • know how to plan, design and conduct interactive workshops of different lengths, settings and purposes
  • are provided with methods for their facilitation toolbox for the beginning, central and final phase of workshops
  • have practiced visualization techniques and the creation of a facilitation plan for par-ticipatory workshops
  • have reflected on different workshop approaches, as well as on facilitators’ attitudes and skills to support participatory learning
