IDEA is hosting a day of workshops on Development Education Facilitation Skills on Thursday, 15 December, 10:00am – 4:00pm.

Our first session of the day, the Advanced Facilitation Skills workshop, is a half-day, hands-on workshop that is intended to build upon the introductory facilitation skills workshop held earlier in the year. This workshop will run from 10am to 1pm. Participants will have the opportunity to try out some active learning methodologies, ask questions and to explore solutions to common problems that arise while facilitating. The workshop will be run by Helena McNeill, the Development Education worker at Lourdes Youth and Community Services. She is the author of Connecting Communities: A Practical Guide to Using Development Education in Community Settings.

Lunch will be from 1pm to 1.45pm.

Our second session of the day (1.45pm to 4pm) will focus on the FairViews Development Education Photo pack. This two-hour workshop will introduce the pack and explore teaching and learning using photographs. As well as promoting innovative teaching and learning, the FairViews photopack supports teachers and facilitators in engaging learners with important themes related to Development Education, human rights and global citizenship. There is a particular focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The team that put FairViews together work in a variety of educational settings and designed the pack as a flexible learning tool. FairViews can be used in primary, secondary and higher education classrooms and with youth, adult and community groups.

The FairViews Photopack will be available on the day to purchase. Price is €20 per pack, cash only please.


Members: €25  for each workshop (advanced facilitation skills in morning and FairViews workshop in afternoon) and €40 if you attend both.

Non-members: €60 for each workshop, €80 if you attend both.
