We live in an era of massive information overload: a non-stop barrage of emails, voicemails, texts, tweets, and FaceBook posts.  Anyone else having trouble getting and keeping your learners’ time and attention?

In this session, we’ll explore how to design immersive, memorable, educational (and fun!) active learning experiences. Experiences that captivate learners, get them engaged, and increase retention. These experiences can frequently augment – and in some cases replace – the increasingly ineffective passive learning approaches that are the basis of most traditional training programs.

In this interactive session (which exemplifies its own principles), you’ll learn to:

  • Design powerful training experiences to create learner anticipation before, engage them during, and reinforce lessons long after the experience.
  • Hit the active learning “sweet spot” by designing learning interactions that incorporate the four characteristics of engaging experiences.  
  • Apply 5 best principles (not best practices) for engaging learners and keep their attention
