Talk Less – Train More: Techniques to Make Learning More Active and Engaging
Join us for an engaging session at Maggiano’s at The Town Center on Thursday, September 15.
Presenter: Rachel A. Stromberg, Leadership Development Consultant
Are you interested in improving the quality of your participant’s learning? Do you want your learners to be able to better retain and apply what they learn? What if they could take more responsibility over their learning and transfer that knowledge to new situations?
As facilitators and instructional designers we know the value of learner centered training, but with the demands to execute training with very short turn-around time, it is often challenging to create something more than lecture style instruction.
This program will be chock-full of interactive, easy to implement, practical activities that can be immediately applied to a variety of learning topics.
Come experience this creative process for yourself, and in this program you will:
- Discover and practice techniques to introduce and conduct training in fun, collaborative, and interesting ways.
- Explore learning activities that will make your courses more engaging and enjoyable.
- Examine how these practical techniques can be applied immediately to your own training programs and enhance your participant’s learning.
