Facilitating the Soliya Connect programme

Elizabeth of iFacilitate has completed successfully the advanced facilitator training provided by Soliya and is now facilitating the organization's Connect programme for the Spring semester. Soliya is an organization that strives to create opportunities for constructive dialogue though use of a virtual exchange platform.

The online training took place over 5 weeks (20 hours). From March 2016, Elizabeth is working with a co-facilitator and supporting a group of students from a number of countries in engaging with each other in dialogue. The Connect programme runs for 2 hours every week for 8 weeks. This initiative has been implemented in over 100 universities in 28 countries across the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, Europe and North America since 2003. It is an online cross-cultural educational programme that enables students to come to a deeper understanding of the perspectives of others on important socio-political issues, and to develop critical thinking, cross-cultural communication and media literacy skills.
