The staff of the Institute for Experiential Education has developed a series of books and Chiji-brand processing tools specifically designed to help experiential educators improve their facilitation skills. Each product, field tested for at least two years, serves a specific role in an educator's spectrum of processing methods and techniques. The current line of products include Chiji Processing Cards, Chiji Pocket Processor, Chiji Processing Dice, Chiji 3-Pack, The Leader Who is Hardly Known, , and the Chiji t-shirt.

 

Chiji Processing Cards

The original IEE product, Chiji Processing Cards are becoming a standard in the experiential education field. Not simply pretty pictures on a deck of playing cards, they are a valuable educational tool for all experiential educators who recognize processing (or debriefing) as the most challenging part of quality facilitation. Spread out among a group of people, the cards are forty-eight images that assist participants in creating their own metaphors. Over 5,000 decks have been sold to counselors, ropes course facilitators, classroom teachers, therapeutic recreation specialists, adventure programmers, camp counselors, and corporate trainers.

Chiji Pocket Processor

The second in the line of Chiji processing tools, the Chiji Pocket Processor uses the Chinese concept of the yin and the yang to teach that most issues do not get addressed with an either/or solution. For example, effective leaders sometimes assume responsibility and sometimes delegate responsibility. Boundaries sometimes provide structure and sometimes create barriers. Fifty different cards, each representing “two sides of the same coin.”

Chiji dice

Chiji Processing Dice

Four 2”x2”x2” dice make up this innovative processing tool. The control die determines which person in the group answers the question. The other three dice, used one at a time, bring a group through the progression of 1) what just happened, 2) how do we feel about it, and 3) how might we use this lesson in the future. Each set comes with four dice, instruction booklet, and storage bag. Also included are twenty-four adhesive blank circles that allow facilitators to customize their own set of dice.
