Methodology & Didactics of the Seminar Moderation
The seminar Moderation Techniques is characterised by its constant alternation between the demonstration of theoretical moderation tools and the practical application of these techniques. Only through the high practical component of this training can you evaluate the respective advantages and disadvantages of the different moderation methods. Feedback from the facilitation trainer as well as from attending experts and managers helps you to find your role as a meeting leader and to sharpen it in the facilitation training.
The facilitation training is enriched by trainer input, individual and group work. The intersectoral exchange of experience among the participants is particularly enriching. If necessary, video analysis is used in the practical exercises, which are preferably taken from your everyday facilitation situations.
Training materials as a transfer aid round off the sustainable learning effect of this facilitation workshop and sharpen your competence even afterwards.
Target group of the moderation training
This facilitation training is suitable for professionals and managers who want to facilitate meetings, workshops and discussions in a confident, structured and results-oriented way. It is aimed at people who want to be able to channel group dynamics in a goal-oriented way and to lead a difficult meeting situation with confidence using the appropriate facilitation method. Finally, this is a group of people who are responsible for developing group results and action plans and would like to be provided with methods for doing so.
You would like to hold the moderation training in your company as an in-house seminar? That is of course possible! We will be happy to prepare an individual offer that meets your content priorities, your specified time frame and other wishes. Please send your in-house enquiry to: email@example.com
You become a good moderator by exposing yourself to real moderation situations as often as possible. In the sense that moderation makes perfect. It is important that you appoint people in the group of participants in your meetings who will give you targeted constructive feedback after each facilitation. Give each person a focus for observation: Structure of the face-to-face or virtual facilitation, behaviour and role, facilitation techniques used, methods used for visualisation, and interaction with the group.
With the help of the feedback you receive, you can compare whether you have achieved the goals you set yourself before a meeting. In this way, you turn everyday professional situations into your personal facilitation training.
What are the tasks of a facilitator?
The role of a meeting leader is to provide a structured process for achieving objectives. He or she is responsible for ensuring that individual participants in a meeting grow together to form a group. Within this group, the individual strengths of the team members are to be recognised and used for the benefit of the group. During this process, individual interests are constantly taken into account and weighed up in order to finally achieve a result that is accepted and supported by all participants.
What types of moderation are there?
Facilitation of meetings and discussions
Virtual moderation via Teams, Zoom and GoToWebinar
Moderation of large groups (over 20 people)

When is moderation useful?
Facilitation is always appropriate in cases where the creativity, experience and knowledge of people from different departments, companies and backgrounds are to be used. In most situations, the aim is for the participants to take part in the process of creating the result and not only to accept the result, but also to support it. In the course of implementing the action plan, a high degree of identification with regard to the work steps is to be expected.
