What is the difference between a Facilitator and a teacher/instructor?
As a teacher/instructor you are likely to be considered an authority in the room and have an expertise in the subject matter of the course. The role of a teacher/instructor is to deliver content information in a format that helps students learn and retain it. As a facilitator, you are not an expert and actively work to discourage the authority that students may give you because of your position. Your role is to create a space where every student's experience and perspective is valued equally. As a facilitator, you are a co-learner with the students.
