In facilitation, the instructor should be a “guide on the side,” encouraging and helping learners to take ownership of the learning session. This differs from traditional lecturing where the instructor is often a “sage on the stage,” controlling the content, organization, and pace of the learning session. Learners in seminars, small groups, and in some clinical settings will expect you to facilitate learning by providing goals and objectives, cases or scenarios, prompts or questions, and question extensions, rather than straight lecturing.
