Depending on the number of participants versus the volunteer facilitators for this initiative, we’ll split the work of Facilitation and Observation. By splitting the roles we increase the overall quality of the facilitation and observation notes together with a more relaxed setting for all facilitators. According the information received from the City Council, it is expected to have something between 60 and 100 participants and as such it would be great to have 12 to 20 facilitators available during the event. In short…
- What does a facilitator need to do? Guide the collaboration in a friendly and constructive manner towards results.
- What does a observer need to do? Take notes about bidding behavior, feelings, atmosphere, results…
- What do both need to know? Let us start with referring to the origin of the Budget Games: Buy a Feature.
We use a closed Google Group for facilitator communication and have agreed on a online kick-of session on June 18th from 8pm till 10pm in order to prepare for… The Kortrijk Budget Games in the evening of June 20th! If you are a professional facilitator yourself and want to be involved to not hesitate to contact me.
We can always use more support!
Keep an eye on our blog for more, we’ll add facilitator names and content information as time goes by, hope to have you on board soon. From the City Council we are mainly in contact with:
