Leading More Effective Group Discussions in Training

One of the key skills for a trainer is the ability to effectively lead group discussions. Discussions help learners to explore content in their own words, reflect upon other people’s viewpoints and strengthen ideas, as well as enabling them to receive a ‘best from the rest’ perspective about the subject matter. However, validating everyone’s comments while keeping the discussion relevant and productive can be challenging. This webinar provides 10 strategies for leading more effective group discussions and will provide specific advice on how to keep discussions meaningful and timely.

Developing winning learning activiites that support learning transfer

In most situations, a carefully selected game or activity will support the trainer in attracting and maintaining interest in their session. If they are not playing, they are straying, so it is important to find the ying and yang relationship between the content and supporting activities. Remember, games are not the antithesis of content. They help to challenge, reinforce, persuade, refocus and reassure participants. This session provides thirteen (13) fun and engaging activities that can be used to support learning transfer.
