    1. What Are the Differences Between Facilitation, Presentation, and Training? Trainers help others improve their performance by teaching, instructing, or facilitating learning. As such, facilitation and presentation are both tools in a trainer’s toolkit. In most cases, effective and engaging trainers will spend less time presenting content through lectures or lecturettes and more time facilitating learning around that content. Presentation vs. Facilitation

      Presentation

      • The presenter delivers information, usually through a lecture
      • The presenter is the expert sharing their knowledge of the subject matter.
      • The presenter spends most of the time talking.
      • The presenter is usually on a stage or at the front of the room.

      Facilitation

      • The facilitator enhances learning for everyone, usually through discussion or activities such as role plays.
      • The facilitator provides opportunities for members of the group to share knowledge and learn from one another.
      • The facilitator spends most of the time asking questions, encouraging others to speak, and answering learners’ questions during activities
      • The facilitator is usually moving around the classroom to help address learners’ questions or monitor how activities are progressing

    1. moderating discussion forums

      I don't know if I would consider this a routine task considering the amount of facilitation a good discussion often requires. Perhaps moderating a forum related to routine support questions where the questions might be "when is my term paper due", or "how do I access the course syllabus" could be routine posts in a discussion forum. But when you get into forums where learner discourse is key to the learning process, the moderating is not routine, or that moderating is even the right word to use to frame those discussions as these types of discussion forums often require a facilitator, not a moderator.

    1. If you strive to see behavior change in your participants and are willing to drop the more comfortable role of constantly “telling”, and  these guidelines will help. Ask questions. Plan and integrate questions that will spur not-so-easy thinking and feeling. Be provocative. Be willing to name dynamics, factions, or hidden assumptions in the group…with the positive intention of causing disequilibrium and curiosity. Encourage experimentation. Balance your “Telling” role with opportunities for participants to explore, create, and make mistakes.

      Asking provocative and probing questions to spur deeper thinking.
