Reduce Trainer Talking, Increase Participant Learning

Resident Mad Scientist, The Thiagi Group
Webinar Recording Details



An ancient Hindu saying proclaims, "Whoever talks the most, learns the most". This principle suggests that we should reduce trainer logorrhea (yes, it's a real word) and increase participant interaction. In this webinar, we explore a set of strategies that enable participants to learn with and learn from each other. Remember it's not about you and your content but all about them and their performance. Transform yourself from being a presenter of information to a facilitator of collective learning through the use of activities that encourage participants to interact with each other and with a variety of content resources.
