What is the meaning of Facilitator / Elicitor?

Functioning as group facilitator and knowledge elicitor, this a facilitator or elicitor pays constant attention to group process, the roles of individuals in the group, and the business of drawing out knowledge and insights from the group. The role of the facilitator / elicitor is the most visible of the five roles in the group modelling support team, as the facilitator constantly works with the group to further the model-building effort (Richardson and Andersen (1995: 113-137).
