So, by now most of you know that I’m going to Rwanda for a facilitation workshop. But what you might not know is that the people who are attending are changing their world. With big open hearts. It’s already pretty humbling and I haven’t met them in person yet. But we know each other through an online course.
I’ve been in online courses before, but not with passionate facilitators. It changes my opinion on online courses. And maybe it’s another indication of how an experience changes when you have a highly engaged group.
So how do you engage people who aren’t already? How do you find and connect to personal passions?
Here’s my picture of highly engaged participation. No facilitator really needed.
I hope to post a bit while I’m there, but it will depend on whether I can split my focus, how hard it is to get online and whether I can get photos from my camera, through my little tablet (I should tell you about that!) and onto this blog.
My little tablet — A Coby Kyros. $150. Android operating system. Tim fixed it up so I can get apps from the Android Marketplace. He followed the detailed instructions for newbies that required his intimate knowledge of systems and programming languages. Brilliant!!! I recommend getting on if you need portable internet computing, but only if you talk to Tim. Otherwise, it’s a glorified gadget.
