A: I find that many facilitators take on the ‘banking approach’ to learning and do not put sufficient trust in the learner as an adult professional coming in with a great deal of experience and knowledge.  The best way to convey ideas, increase retention and educate is to WEAVE what the ‘learner’ brings in with new ideas, suggestions or concepts from the facilitator.  It is the facilitator’s job to create a type of environment where this dynamic can happen.  Many times we forget to weave a tapestry with them and we simply resort to presenting a factory-made version of it.
