Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has seen or used a self assessment tool for facilitators of online communities? I’m thinking of something along the lines of Nancy White’s 9 community orientations but developed into some form of competency framework a la the KM self assessment by Geoff Parcel and Chris Collison. But I wonder if this would adequately describe the role of the facilitator – or even whether that’s possible given the variation in purpose, domain and environment between different online communities.

Appreciate your thoughts.

Kind regards, Simon

I have a feeling that the Constellation for AIDS Competency have developed one for facilitators. Gaston will know.

With kind regards

You’ll find it in the Resources and Tools section of the Constellation’s website. It is taliloed to the Constellation’s needs but can easily be adapted.

Hi Simon

We started drafting one in our team on community facilitation, based on some of the stuff Nancy has writting. We realised that we need to involve more faciltiators to give them the ownership. But is a copy of what we have done so far.

Many thanks
