Relevant Topics For Special Educators: Facilitating Meetings

Jen Patenaude, MA

Strong facilitation skills can create a positive, safe environment where all team members feel comfortable to actively participate. Participants learn the importance of clear communication, active listening, and intentional preparation and organization to ensure a smooth, productive outcome aligned with the meeting’s purpose. Participants also gain access to strategies, tools, and techniques that support effective facilitation.
