Tools and Tips for Fun and Effective Group Facilitation: A Two-day Workshop for Trainers and Facilitators

April 28 @ 9:30 am - May 12 @ 4:30 pm

Two Full-Day Workshop 


Does your job currently require you to train others? If not, do you expect your future will include training and presentations? Does public speaking make you anxious and cause you to lose your self-confidence? If any of these questions resonate with you, join us for this two-day workshop that will boost your skill level and help you design and facilitate stimulating and engaging workshops.

Day One (4/28/2020) you will learn the fundamentals of adult learning, logistics, tools, participant management, and encouraging interaction.

Day Two (5/12/2020) two weeks later, you will integrate what you learned and present for 15 minutes to your peers on any topic that you want. Workshop participants will provide feedback on your content and technique.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn the basics of instructional design to help structure learning activities and devise exercises to meet teaching objectives
  • Explore options for utilizing adult learning concepts to reach all types of learners in a group
  • Discover presentation techniques and facilitation skills to encourage and stimulate participation, even among reluctant participants

NOTE: This workshop is limited to 15 participants. Early registration is highly recommended. Attendance at both sessions is required.
