1. An A-Z of Training Techniques: 26 dynamic activities to enhance and engage learning
In most situations, a carefully selected game or activity will support the trainer in attracting and maintaining interest in their session. If they are not playing they are straying, so we need to find the ying and yang relationship of content and supporting activity. Remember, games are not the antithesis of content. They help to challenge, reinforce, persuade, refocus and reassure participants. This session provides a dynamic A-Z of proven tips and tricks for the trainer’s tool kit aimed at engaging and supporting learning. It promises 26 activities that will enhance the educational experience. These techniques include openers, warm-ups, energisers, “fun” summaries and a range of other tips to keep your students on their toes! Participants will have a chance to practice a selection of the techniques, participate in debriefing these and will be involved in creating their fun-tastic new techniques!
