Daily Facilitation Tip: Power dynamics from linguistic competence

Today’s video is by Francesca Helm, where she talks about how power dynamics can emerge in our facilitation/teaching and learning settings, especially in language learning, so being aware that these dynamics exist is the first step to being intentionally equitable. She also talks about not viewing diversity from a deficit perspective but rather seeing it as an enriching element. Watch/listen to learn more about her intentionally equitable facilitation tips!
