For the support of the facilitator

With becoming a great facilitator becomes a great responsibility which is why we want to support you with your task.

First of all, you have to participate in the Self-Hack and the Self-Hack facilitator training in order to become one. These are arranged in Tellus and without participating in these you cannot facilitate during the day. During Self-Hack and the facilitator training you will already master the concept of Self-Hack and get a grip of what it means to be a facilitator. You will get all the slidesets and materials used in the trainings for yourself. You will also get a Self-Hack playbook, which is given to all the new students, to get familiar with it.

During the event there will be instructions and tips shared from university's official Snapchat account (@UniOulu) throughout the whole day.

In this page we have collected some interesting articles and other material regarding facilitation and Self-Hack concept, to give you some insight. You can check out those you find interesting.
