Creative Training Techniques Event Series

The Creative Training Techniques webinar event series is designed to free participants from boring and unproductive training sessions and unlock the true potential of every group.

It aims to provide value for trainers of all experience levels. Seasoned trainers will learn new ways to engage and enliven audiences and those who have recently joined the training profession will obtain a great foundation on how to use creative training techniques to attract and maintain the interest of their audiences.

The event comprises the following sessions:

  • Introduction to Creative Training Techniques
  • Amplifying Learning Using C.O.R.E.
  • Training FUNdamentals
  • Creatively Managing Difficult Behaviours in Training
  • Putting it all together - Creative Training Techniques in Practice!

Ultimately, it is a fun, fast-paced, 'how-to' driven event, which promises dozens of innovative techniques, strategies and activities, across the five webinars, that can be immediately applied to the participants' own training situations.

The concepts and ideas shared come from the Train-the-Trainer Boot Camp, the world’s most popular train-the-trainer program, for which MRWED is the exclusive Australian Licensee. The Creative Training Techniques webinar series therefore provides a ‘highlights package’ to help transform the programs of attendees, who will join thousands of trainers from around the world who have used these techniques to increase retention and promote engaging and impactful learning experiences.

Amplifying Learning Using C.O.R.E.

Involvement and interaction are at the heart of effective training. When the learning is participant-centred, students retain more and are more likely to enjoy their learning experience. This session focuses on how to integrate participant-centred learning through the use of C.O.R.E. (Closers, Openers, Revisiters, Energisers). It will demonstrate how to add impact to your training with applicable openers and closers, support the revisiting of content in new and fresh ways and will outline how to engage your participants with fast, yet effective energisers. A range of additional support materials will also be provided to assist in putting C.O.R.E. into practice.

Training FUNdamentals

When you make learning fun, the learning process feels practically effortless—which means your learners stop clock-watching and focus more on the content of your presentation. Further to this, levelling up the fun will increase the participants' interest levels and engagement which will also add to their overall retention of the material. This webinar explores the five (5) FUNdamental principles of participant-centered learning and provides more than a dozen strategies for audience engagement. Further to this, it will share evidence-based research that supports the creative training FUNdamentals discussed.

Creatively managing difficult behaviours in training

Every trainer encounters difficult behaviours and situations in their career. The behaviour of a few can have an enormous impact on the whole and as a result can critically injure the success of your programs. But wouldn’t it be great to have some sort of trainer’s first aid kit of items to get your sessions out of intensive care! This session will discuss 11 proven strategies aimed at minimising difficult behaviours using creative training techniques and will highlight winning strategies that will help any trainer to create a positive and exciting program for their learners.
