Making your training modules more interactive, engaging and learner-oriented
Our Advanced Train The Trainer workshop (also available online) is a 2-day seminar that helps participants design their own interactive training modules that are hands-on and highly didactic. During the seminar participants will develop a clear training 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. The open, face to face Train The Trainer workshop is held in Munich, Germany.
