Making training fun and interactive without sacrificing content is a challenge for all instructors. But gaining and keeping participants engaged can be even more challenging when you have ‘latecomers,’ ‘vacationers,’ ‘skeptics,’ or ‘prisoners’ in your classroom. Discussions and activities will focus on creative alternatives to lecture, including games, puzzles, analogies, icebreakers, visual aids, and more. Learn how to design and deliver training with impact; invigorate a drowsy class with energizers; use openers and closers effectively; employ strategies and techniques to prevent or minimize the negative effects of challenging behavior. Break free and discover how you can create learning experiences that are unique, motivating, and memorable.
