What does a Facilitator do?

The tasks of the learning facilitator are to identify and discuss individual learning needs and individual learning behaviour, to design appropriate learning paths and to make learning agreements about them, to select learning tasks (from real work), to prepare them and to hand them over for independent work, to observe and accompany the learner's processing of the task, to conduct interim discussions, to conduct evaluation discussions, to perceive individual learning pitfalls and obstacles to learning, to motivate learners to continue learning, to constantly review and question one's own behaviour, to moderate heterogeneous learning groups as well as to deal with conflicts and to be able to advise in case of conflicts. 

Learning facilitators can be teachers, learning coaches, trainers but also pedagogically trained professionals. They must be able to design the learning arrangement for a learning task, and for this they should be able to master and design different forms of learning, e.g. discovery learning, exploratory tasks, learning through teaching, project learning, action learning.
