You know them. You’ve sat through them. You’ve felt the pain. Training so lecture laden that you wish you had a magic wand to make it all go away!
Pre-registration is now closed, but we welcome walkins at the door.
Presented by Jean Barbazette and Melissa Smith
Well, NOW you can! We’ll show you how to use your powers for GOOD and change up how you write activities so that your learners will be engaged instead of disengaged.
We’ll give you five activities (alternatives to lecture) that will help you produce high learner involvement and retention! They include:
- Learning Tournaments
- Course Pre-work
- Information Search Activities
- Observation Activities
In this highly interactive session, you learn how to:
- Write directions and rules of a learning tournament
- Prepare the learner BEFOREHAND for the learning that is to come
- Develop information search activities with processing questions
- Create the components of an observation activity
- Craft demonstrations with skill performance checklists to be used in the training environment and back on the job.
