No More Boring Lectures for YOU!

Write activities to make boring lectures disappear

Whether online or in the classroom, you’ve felt the pain. Training so lecture laden that you wish you had a magic wand to make it all go away!
Well, NOW you can! We’ll show you how to use your powers for GOOD and change up how you write activities so that your learners will be engaged instead of disengaged.
Experience five activities (alternatives to lecture) that will help you produce high engagement and retention in any learning environment!

In this highly interactive session, you learn how to:

  • Write directions and rules for a learning simulation
  • Prepare participants BEFOREHAND for the learning session
  • Develop information search activities with processing questions
  • Create the components of an observation activity
  • Craft demonstrations with skill performance checklists to be used in the training environment and back on the job

Join us to magically transform your lectures into long lasting learning experiences!
