One of the questions most asked by teachers and trainers is “how can I make my sessions more engaging?”.  To help teachers and trainer a series of webinars have been developed by Donna McGeorge, that will help you to increase your student engagement.  There is an art and science to participant engagement and this series will explore both.  Webinars in the series include:

  • • Engaging Training – Structuring your content
  • • Engaging Training – Designing activities
  • • Engaging Training – Debriefing for maximum impact
  • • Engaging Training – Reduce PPT and Increase engagement

  • Understand how to get groups/audiences on side quickly
  • Structure your content so it’s engaging for all audiences

  • Debrief activities to ensure the learning is embedded
  • Use alternatives to PowerPoint to deliver co-creative learning experiences
