Engage, Pull, Transform: Drive Change With Creative Learning

May 20, 2024

While the L&D field professes to value the input of participant engagement and “pulling information” from our experienced participants, doing it is another story. In the middle of a program, these interactive discussions can feel overwhelming for the facilitator, because they are quite different from typical training involving a lecturer and slide deck. Join this session to learn both skills and the art of creating environments where you can pull content from participants rather than pushing it out to them. The skills involve steering conversations with probing questions to meet the objectives, validating responses, and ensuring that learning happens in a way that results in changed behaviors and culture. You’ll leave this session with durable learning techniques you can use to maximize engagement and create a dynamic learning environment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create a priming effect using durable learning activities to maximize participant engagement.
  • Transform the classroom with critical thinking discussions for profound cultural change.
