Most people find training flies by when they’re actively engaged—when they’re doing things during the session as well as listening and watching.  

At this session of the Trainers’ SIG, we’ll focus on upping the level of activity during our training sessions.  We’ll look at small things, like how getting participants to click on a link or walk to the front of a room to post a note can help them stay engaged and help the time fly by.  We’ll also discuss the longer type of activities—whether individual, small group or entire class activities—that involve set up, instructions and debriefs.

At our meeting we’ll:

  • Brainstorm and demonstrate techniques for making training active
  • Share with each other what we currently do to make our training sessions active
  • Practice what we preach by using various techniques to make this Trainers’ SIG session active

Our hope is that you’ll walk away with motivation and ideas to help you up the activity level of your own training.  Join us if you can!  We’d love to see you there.

We look forward to seeing you there!
