Workshop Description:

Designing for Facilitation requires deep and thorough grounding in facilitation and training. Unfortunately, many designers are good at construction and CAD but lack perspective needed to foster growth and avoid emotional or physical risks. Adventure Parks generally sacrifice facilitation in favor or high throughput. Let’s explore common elements seeking to understand designs, styles and even measurements that increase programming efficacy.

Learning Objectives:

Contrast the effects of design that detract or add to facilitation. Experience design ideas for both high and low elements that increase the efficacy of facilitation. Explore the “weakness in every system” and learn to choose the lesser weakness when designing for facilitation.
