It is part of Paula’s practice, as an external facilitator, to work closely with an internal guidance person or team to inform and guide the project design and delivery to ensure relevant and practical results.  Her approach is grounded in research, collaboration, participation and principles of experiential and adult learning.

Principles of Adult Education

  • Learning starts with participant knowledge and experience
  • Promotes inclusion and participation
  • Learning based on action and reflection
  • Learning honours knowledge and experiences while challenging “common sense” ways of thinking
  • The learning environment is safe, yet challenging


Appreciative approach

  • A focus on what is working and what is important
  • Building on strengths and successes while naming challenges and barriers and solutions to addressing these



  • Adult learning and planning is best achieved through dialogue and participation
