Do you need more processing skills than sitting in a circle, asking questions, and talking about what happened? This intensive workshop is based on the book, A Teachable Moment, and will give you access to 120+ different processing tools that are simple and easy to use.
Processing helps learners make connections between their educational experiences and real life, as well as future learning. It helps learners realize that they can apply the lessons they learn and skills they use in a “contrived environment” such as a classroom or challenge course to real life issues such as resolving a conflict with friends, co-workers or significant others. Processing helps create purpose, meaning and focus of an activity. It helps learners take advantage of teachable moments.

Why is the reflective side of experiential education often skipped in educational programming? Why do facilitators share that this is one of the aspects they find most challenging? In our observations it seems many are intimidated by processing because they think it is boring, they are intimidated by asking the right questions in the right order, or they do not leave enough time for debriefing. Some facilitators like leading the games or group challenges, but they do not make the time for what they see as the less engaging “task” of debriefing.
