Tapping the Brain for Learning


Adults typically prefer involvement and activity in their learning process.  Much of this can be traced back to childhood learning when we learning by doing - crawling on the ground, getting dirty and having fun. 


So in effect, we have been conditioned to learn in this manner.  After all, adults are just kids with big bodies!  They simply need an opportunity to revisit their childhood experiences as they learn.  Unfortunately, many learning and performance professionals are afraid to try techniques that are out of the "norm," such as using games, toys, incentives, props, and whatever else they can translate to a learning concept.  That's why they sometimes need a push. 


In Tapping the Brain for Learning, you will explore a variety of creative strategies for getting people engaged and out of their seats.


The program is based on the facilitator's nearly four decades of experience in training and educating participants and trainers.  In additional to giving dozens of innovative ideas to add pizzazz to your training, you'll get numerous practical tips on how to turn everyday items into inexpensive, creative training aids.  Through a series of demonstrations, discussions, and activities, you'll expand your training creativity repertoire with ideas you can immediately use and have FUN!!
