“Learning can be fun!”

“Learning is NOT a spectator sport!”

These two basic precepts are the underlying reasons why speakers and trainers must become more proficient in experiential learning. That today’s audiences are younger, more sophisticated, better educated and more critical are obvious understatements.

In this fun. fast-paced forum, we’ll review a few tips on adult learning, and you will leave with dozens of tested tools and techniques you can use in your next presentation or training program.

After a quick review of some basic laws of adult learning, we’ll identify a “learning organization” and how easily you can develop one with your next audience. With that foundation, we’ll be addressing several ways to “set the stage” and show the importance of climate setting. In addition, you’ll experience numerous “get-acquainted” activities and other tips and tools for audience involvement.

As a result of attending this workshop, you will learn:
  1. Four basic laws of adult learning
  2. The basic ingredients of a “learning organization”
  3. Several traits of experiential learning
  4. Six ways to strong openings and closings
  5. Twenty six parts of the “Games Alphabet”
  6. To have fun in so doing!
