Learning & Trainingsdesign

When it comes to designing learning processes, adults are a challenging "audience". They bring a lot of experience and ask for knowledge that they can use immediately.

Passing on expert knowledge is not enough to make learning processes stimulating. Interactive learning methods make workshops more entertaining for the learners but also less predictable for the trainers. This can make trainers feel uncomfortable.

I create a learning space in which you can experiment.

In my train-the-trainer seminars, you will learn more about experienced-based learning. You will learn how to design an appealing (e-) learning process. You will try out new learning methods in a safe environment. This experience will strengthen your ability to work with groups.

Why teaching is more than filling an empty bucket

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

My own experience:

 

The request waiting in my inbox at the beginning of the day is directed at me as a coach and learning consultant. A group of experts who are delivering a training together want to redesign the entire programme. In order to achieve the desired result, they would like to take advantage of a didactic-methodological consultation. In a preliminary talk we discuss their specific needs and develop a plan to tackle this task. For preparation, the group shares the materials already used, which are to be revised together with the new training design.

How participants decribe their experience:

Most of your hints and ideas proved to be worth their weight in gold and I also applied them in my daily work. I had a very good experience but also realized room for improvement. One has to keep working on oneself. ... I managed to convince my longstanding colleague that frontal teaching is not only boring, but also only a little knowledge stays....
