“Tapping the Brain for Learning”
Thursday, March 21, 2013
5:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m.
Location: Crowne Plaza - Orlando
Creativity is a state of mind -- literally. Many people limit their ability to generate and capitalize on
ideas because they have a self-imposed mental barrier. Too often this restriction comes from their
belief that they are not "creative." In reality, most people ARE creative if they simply relax and expand
on contacts and concepts experienced daily.
This interactive session will allow attendees to explore their creativity and think outside the box related to obtaining and using a variety of props, items, strategies and techniques to enhance learning and add pizzazz to their sessions. During the program, participants will experience a variety of techniques grabbing and holding participants' attention, verifying that that learning is occurring and gaining participant feedback during a session. Additionally, the facilitator will focus on and demonstrate creative methods for using training aids and props to facilitate adult learning.
- Research findings related to learning and the brain.
- Strategies for reviewing material throughout a program to ensure that transfer of information is occurring before the program ends.
- Sources and usage of creative training tools and props which can enhance the learning, make learning FUN and stimulate a desire to participate.
- Tips for effective and creative presentation of program content.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: At the end of this program and when applying concepts discussed and demonstrated, participants will be able to:
- Facilitate creative training programs and presentations that can help induce behavior change and are FUN.
- Increase interaction with participants.
- Create memorable techniques for adding excitement and sizzle to your programs so that participants keep coming back.
Mark your calendars to network with your peers while gaining insights into how brain research related to learning can be immediately applied to your own learning events in order to help your participants better gain, retain, recall and use what they learn.
