  1. Facilitators establish a physical and psychological climate conducive to learning. This is achieved physically by circular seating arrangements and psychologically by creating a climate of mutual respect among all participants, by emphasizing collaborative modes of learning, by establishing an atmosphere of mutual trust, by offering to be supportive, and by emphasizing that learning is pleasant. Such a caring, respectful, helping, and accepting climate is said by Knowles to be a "climate of humanness"

  2. Facilitators involve learners in mutual planning of methods and workshop directions. People will make firm commitments to activities in which they feel they have played a participatory, contributory role.

  3. Facilitators involve participants in diagnosing their own learning needs.

  4. Facilitators encourage learners to formulate their own learning objectives.

  5. Facilitators encourage learners to identify resources and to devise strategies for using such resources to accomplish their objectives.

  6. Facilitators help learners to carry out their learning plans.

  7. Facilitators involve learners in evaluating their learning, principally through the use of qualitative evaluative modes.
