National Diffusion Forum Presentation of the Diffusion Training for the Florida Linkage System.
Presented are the skills needed for facilitating and linking. A role play experience provides the opportunities for issues and concerns to be made explicit. The role play process permits conflict points to be made explicit and to be specified in a psychologically safe context. Because the role play is "make believe," there is permission to express opinions which might not otherwise be expressed. Players are observed for behaviors. Debriefing the role play provides lists of concerns and issues which are sometimes associated with the adoption and implementation of innovations. Debriefing the observation provides lists of behaviors that facilitate or inhibit group problem solving. Guidance is provided for conducting and interpreting the role play experience. (Author/RE)
