Skill-Building & Networking Gatherings

Posted by Blue Door Group on August 24, 2015

We hope you are having fun in the sun this summer and getting some well-deserved vacation. The Blue Door Group has been designing and facilitating officially now for over a year! We’re so grateful for your support and wanted to tell you about what we’ve been up to for the past year – and what lies ahead for 2015-2016.
Skill-Building & Networking Gatherings

2014-2015: Our 4 Skill-building and Networking Gatherings (2.5 hour professional development opportunities offered in the evening) brought 45 people together to learn more about various topics including interactive teaching tips, the art of asking questions, and facilitation skills.

2015-2016: We have a full slate of 6 gatherings, a great way to sample what Blue Door has to offer. Come meet some other great educators, trainers, & organizers and try out your skills. Our gatherings are always open to the public, and pizza is provided.

Who is The Blue Door Group?

Our focus is interaction and participation. We design, facilitate, and teach interactive processes for learning & capacity-building. We work in four core areas:

* Teaching Participatory Approaches to Education & Facilitation

* Organizational Capacity-Building

* Diversity Dialogues & Intercultural Communication

* Community-Building & Engagement

We were previous founders and members of the Philadelphia Trainers’ Collaborative (PTC), a volunteer-run skill-sharing organization for trainers and educators. We build on PTC’s strengths by offering in-depth skill-sharing and training opportunities utilizing participatory approaches.

2015-2016: We want to work with you! Check out our workshop list, explore our website, and contact us if you would like to discuss how we might support your work. Also please share this email if you know of someone who could use our services.
