Program Description

The premise of this workshop is to constantly ask yourself as a facilitator “what am I doing that the participants could be doing.” We will be modeling that and asking the group to present the ideas of the workshop by first examining the Adult Learning principle as a group. Then, they will present those to the audience with some suggestions as to how to reach it.

Each part of the workshop will involve the audience in doing much of the work. We will look at the elements of training that cause the most problems for the learners and will work towards ways to overcome those obstacles. This is most suitable for those that conduct live face to face training who would like to find ways to bring some fun and interactivity into their training. We will work at challenging assumptions that we all make when confronted with a problem. By the end of the half day workshop attendees will have had the opportunity work together to really involve themselves as a learner.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate the activities and presentations of adult learning principles and suggest ways to better meet the needs of adult learners
  • Challenge and evaluate different ways of looking at and solving problems
  • Apply the techniques shown to your learning events and develop a plan to engage your own learners
