“Liberating Structures start with something so simple and essential as not to seem worth doing and end with something so powerful and profound that it hardly seems possible.” (Liberating Structures)

Liberating Structures – An Immersive Learning Workshop

Join our virtual presenter, Fisher Qua, for an immersive learning experience.  

Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn facilitation strategies that enhance relational coordination and trust. They quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include everyone and unleash their creativity.  

Adding Liberating Structures to your instructional strategy toolbox can build student trust and increase their engagement, online and in person.
