Do you need to make your training modules more interesting, engaging and highly didactic?

The goal of this 2.5-day seminar is to help participants design more interactive and experientially-based training modules.  During the workshop participants will develop a clear structure and numerous activities for every stage of the training cycle (i.e. ice-breakers, opening gap-analysis activities, numerous input methods, debriefing questions, easy-to-use interactive tests, as well as skills and knowledge anchoring). Participants will also experience how to teach theoretical input using interactive activities. Participants are invited to bring their own training topics to the course and develop them during our 2 days together.
