RLI Faculty Training Sessions are necessary to train / qualify Rotarians and to re-certify previously certified Rotarians for the conducting of RLI Facilitation Sessions.
The purpose of faculty orientation programs is to provide background information about RLI, to acquaint new faculty members with the RLI curriculum and materials and to discuss the discussion leader/facilitator skills and techniques needed for successful future RLI courses. This program is NOT an RLI course, but is designed for the “faculty” members who will lead the discussion groups at future courses.
The faculty orientation sessions are extremely important to the future of an RLI Division because the quality of the faculty often determines whether a course day is successful. Because this is voluntary on the part of the participants, they will not return for a future Part if they do not have a good experience at a course.
