What does a facilitator do?

Facilitators attend the course lectures with the students and work in collaboration with the professor. The facilitator conducts workshops, develops workshop materials, clarifies lecture points for the students, and assists them in understanding the expectations of the professor, and plan workshop activities. Workshop activities include course specific study guides, collaborative team learning, practice quizzes and tests, study skills on note-taking, time management, and reducing test anxiety. Workshops are not for re-lecturing. Creative alternatives to learning the materials which are not typically found in the traditional classroom are employed.
