Making Training Stick

We have all participated in training courses or workshops. Some of these have been helpful and useful in our everyday lives and others have seemed redundant and a waste of time. How often have we cheered or grumbled at being asked to participate in a training day?
The good news is that all training can be useful and applicable if the trainer keeps some simple tips in mind when developing and applying training. We all learn differently, but there are some truths about learning that can be applicable to most groups and can be tweaked to fit any training session.

This workshop is offered within organizations for groups of 5 people or more.

This one-day workshop will help you teach participants:

  • Strategies that can help learning to stick with the audience in an effective and meaningful way.
  • How to keep learners focused and motivated to absorb material.
  • To develop an effective training style, using appropriate training aids and techniques.

Course Overview
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
