This is our guide to help you facilitate EA discussion groups, fellowships, and other programs.
By 'facilitator' we mean 'the person who runs the discussion and is trying to make sure it goes well.'
We can’t predict every situation you’ll come across as a facilitator. One of the best things you can do is practice and then reflect on the decisions you made.
Most of the time, you’ll have a good idea of what’s best for your group and your facilitation style, and where you get it wrong, you’ll find a valuable learning experience.
This guide is heavily indebted to resources produced by Jessica McCurdy, Anne Le Roux, EA Hub Resources (including Julia Wise), Sydney Von Arx, Joshua Monrad, and Marie Buhl & the designers of the Oxford Intro Fellowship curriculum of 2020 for its content, and to Isaac Dunn, Will Payne, Mauricio Baker, Michael Byun, Chana Messinger, and the Global Challenges Project for their comments.
