The method of learn(process)facilitation which has been developed by the GAB München is a clearly structured procedure that aims to bring working and learning together. Step by step and with a clear buildup, it includes structures and instruments that can easily be learned and adapted to fit one’s personal work and learning situation.
Capturing individual learning needs Self-reflective and external feedback is exchanged through conversations as well as reporting on challenges and individual aims. The outcome of this conversation is an agreed set of learning needs.
Developing a learning route Learning routs are real, complex challenges from within the work setting that ask for the personal competencies that are needed.
Making a learn agreement The learner and the facilitator agree on a preferable route in order to take the learner towards his/her aims – because: “what use is the nicest learning route if it is not walked upon?”
Choosing task-based/ corporate processes and preparing for learning The aim is to enable the learner to master the complex tasks he or she has been given independently. The process facilitator will prepare this individually with the aid of the learning arrangement, investigative tasks and control points.
Facilitating learning processes The learner is active during the whole learning process. The facilitator is required to be ‘actively passive’. Should the facilitator intervene inappropriately, they will inhibit the full potential of the learning chances. The facilitator is there to support the learner whenever it is required.
Evaluating the learning processes During the evaluation meeting, both the learner and the facilitator look back and reflect on the learning process. In this way the experiences and newly discovered insights are highlighted and made conscious.
