October 2020 Chapter of the Month

Buffalo Niagara Chapter

The Buffalo Niagara Chapter created a special interest group (SIG) for facilitators. The SIG hosts an open mic night where facilitators can try different classroom techniques, activities, ice breakers, lectures, and more before receiving immediate feedback from the group. At the event, presenters are given a 15-minute block of time. Once the presentation has concluded, attendees fill out a feedback form and share their thoughts directly with the presenter. Whether presenting or attending the most recent open mic, all participants shared they were uplifted by either receiving valuable feedback from peers or learning something in the process of work shopping an activity, lecture, and so forth, respectively.
