What is a facilitator? Versus other Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI)-related roles, a key component of facilitation is to assist researchers in leveraging ACI resources for themselves, rather than performing research tasks on ACI systems for or as a contributor to a specific research project.
While many facilitators spend their time on a variety of tasks that are essential to providing ACI resources to research communities, the activities of facilitation are best represented in the below items.
- See the facilitation resources page for more facilitation resources, including the ACI-REF Best Practices of Facilitation.
- See the ACI-REF blog for hands-on stories about the practice of facilitation.
