Engaged Participation LO12262 - Spinoff of Inner Circle

The postings about an inner circle have interested me. Often we perceive
involvement as visible action to others. Educational trainers Bob
Garmston and Bruce Wellman present discriptions of useful roles in groups.
Most of our attention goes to visible roles such as chair, facilitator,
and recorder. We don't focus much on engaged participant. An engaged
participant is mentally involved, not necessarily verbally involved.

When I think of the emphasis we put one training for facilitators and
leaders, I sometimes realize how we omit training for engaged
participation. If we we going to design training for engaged participants
- what might be an attractive title or training discription? Ideas?
