Create Powerful Learning Environments

Purchase for $59.99 (AUD) incl. GST

Fun ways to stretch minds & extend the consolidation of learning 

Be the master of your Training environment, not its victim! There are a lot of things that affect the flow of a lesson – both online and in person. In this webinar/workshop you will learn ways to: generate curiosity in the learner; create a stimulating adult learning space, and have time work for you with tricks that work like magic. Use group dynamics to achieve your outcomes. Never let difficult behaviours flatten your enthusiasm. Join Laurie Kelly from Brain Friendly Training to help you really feel that you have plenty of ideas to help build your confidence in managing the ‘non-content’ aspects of training. These are equally important to utilize correctly to achieve your goals of an outstanding training session. Laurie will show you how!

Be the master of the training environment - change a ‘tool’ into a valuable ‘asset’ for your training. Whether you are training in a face-to-face workshop or via an online session, you need to be the ringmaster of the training environment. Quite often, sadly overlooking the training environment plays a pivotal role in setting the scene for what is to come, and how engaged your students might be. There are so many different things you can do to put yourself and your students at ease and activate the Prefrontal Thinking Cortex for the best learning outcome. This webinar will not just look at what causes Anxiety and Stress in the Brain, but also how to minimize its negative effects on yourself and your students, so that the brain is eager, ready and open so that good learning can be achieved. Managing the Training Environment includes time issues, student behaviour, room and space (including online), nerves and technology, and the impact of stress on the brain and how to negate it. Again, as with all Brain Friendly Training, practical skills and ideas will be offered for you to experience for yourself to see how effective it truly is! Start the whole process with the best learning environment you can create!
