Liberating Structures are powerful facilitation strategies that can be used to support classrooms, workshops, presentations, meetings, planning sessions, and ongoing complex organizational change.

They are "serious fun" ways to unleash and include everyone in conversations, learning, and decision-making. Liberating Structures invite us to consider alternatives to “conventional structures” (e.g. lectures, unstructured discussions, round robin status updates) and lead active, participatory sessions that quickly foster lively engagement in inclusive groups of any size.  

Join us for a fast-paced session where you will experience the four most-used Liberating Structures used in BC post-secondary education settings, and consider how you might use them in your work!
