We humans learn best by doing, discussing, moving, sharing. I design my training sessions to provide a great learning experience for participants, using techniques from Sharon Bowman’s Training from the Back of the Room book. Each workshop or tutorial starts with participants getting to know me and each other and identifying what they want to take away from the session. A few minutes lecture on a topic, supported by visuals on slides, is followed by a thoughtfully-designed, hands-on group exercise so that participants can practice as they learn. Discussions with small groups and the whole class are also included.
Depending on the topic and the scope, these remotely-facilitated sessions range from two to four hours. Where it makes sense, we can do a series of sessions on related topics over multiple days.
