Ways to generate interest & raise energy in the room 

It really isn’t hard to ensure successful learning outcomes for your students. It’s simply about facilitating neuro-connections in learners’ brains. Join Laurie Kelly from Brain Friendly Training in this webinar/workshop which is all about exploring concepts and providing you with ideas that you can transfer and use immediately in your training sessions, to build in and guarantee student learning success. It will be a practical and fast paced session of ideas generation, delivering activities and solutions to help create excellent results for your students.

Avoid learner overload! Ensure students ‘experience’ the learning, not just ‘hear’ content. Don't make this common mistake -- tell them and tell them and tell them, again and again ... and keep telling them what you have told them until they get it. Newsflash - they're not going to get it!

Training delivery must be Brain Friendly and Engaging to be successful. Too often trainers omit simple things from their delivery that can easily and quickly engage the brain, yet it's so simple and easy to do. Remember: one style of presentation does not fit all. Unfortunately about only 8% of learners actually learn primarily through the auditory sense. So, lecturing to, and talking at participants will not cut it. Your training, including your training environment, has to be "Multi-Sensory" if you want to maximise learning and knowledge recall. Trainers very often have content expertise gathered over many years of experience, and their inclination is to ‘dump’ this entire knowledge and expertise in a very short, time-restricted training workshop. Learner overload ensues. It becomes all about the Trainer downloading information NOT the learner absorbing the knowledge and filing it away for later, as needed. If you really want your training to have impact, then enjoy this webinar that reveals an integral Brain Friendly rule to follow. You'll also experience a wealth of ideas to keep them engaged and 'doing', not 'drowning'. Set them up for success, don't fail them for lack of brain-friendly delivery skills to truly make their learning experience brilliant and worthwhile.
