Do you enjoy training classes that feel more like a conversation than a lecture?

At this session of the Trainers’ SIG, we’ll focus on delivering training in such a way that it feels like a conversation. Of course, when you’re delivering an actual training session, it’s fine to talk for a few paragraphs in a row here and there, but at this session, we’ll focus on having a back and forth flow of dialogue with your participants.

Here’s what we’ll do at the session:

  • Discuss a few best practices for making training conversational
  • Practice turning instructor notes designed for lectures into instructor notes for dialogues
  • Practice delivering training without saying more than 2 or 3 sentences in a row

We look forward to seeing you there!
