S – 2.4 Recommendations

It is recommended to make the course with two facilitators. One who is leading the activities and the second one who goes around and helps out as a mentor, and who should have knowledge on the technical side in order to support participants with lesser digital skills.

The training should enable enough ice breaking and team building methodologies. In order to build small groups into teams, and to enable creativity.

The participants should have enough space and time to explore and reflect their own thoughts, and to construct their own stories. There should be a good balance between frontal teaching time and actually practicing the exercises.

We recommend to third one third one third frontal two thirds of experimenting and practicing.

Facilitators, should be aware that the creative process might exceed the time of the training, although the creativity of the participants should be encouraged the facilitator has to moderate, and in doubt, limit the duration of the activities.

As the trainings will work with faces and voices of real people the trainers should communicate smoothly digital consent and permanently ask for permission of people to be filmed or voices to be used.

No one should be pressured into acting or contributing their voices if they are not ready to do so.

Keep in mind, there are people with different digital or narrative skills. If you create small groups. It is favorable if you either mix the groups that all skills are represented, or create learning groups with different level of knowledge. But please bear in mind that in this case extensive mentoring is needed.
