These facilitation guides are specifically designed for both small groups (of less than 10) or large groups (of more than 10). Each guide has tailored activities to help engage staff in ACTIVE LEARNING and DISCUSSION. The guides can be used as a framework to reinforce the materials learned in the Seasonal & Part-Time Onboarding e-courses. As a trainer of staff, you can select one or more of the activities to reinforce the materials covered in the e-courses. The activities described in the facilitation guides serve the following purposes:
