Are you maximizing every opportunity to connect with participants before, during and after training? This is the key to optimizing the learning experience of every individual and the focus of these 125 tested and proven-effective activities for trainers. The Activities are grouped under five critical points of contact trainers have with participants. Based on the principles of accelerated and adult learning, the activities have sound objectives. But they are also fun. Some utilize all the senses. Many get participants on their feet and moving around. Others encourage participants to reveal what they already know and apply what they learn. The activities are formatted for easy use with clearly marked objectives, best occasion to use them, group size, estimated time equipment and supplies needed and materials. Many of the activities have ready-to-use handouts.
