How to Energize Your Workshops and Turn On the Learning

Do you need to conduct a workshop but you've never had any formal training on doing one? Have you been doing the same workshop repeatedly and are looking for some ways to liven it up a bit? Are you tired of doing all the talking in your workshops and want to get your audience more involved? In this workshop for those who lead workshops, you learn the basics of experiential-learning theory, how to develop outcome-based learning objectives, and how to use interactive teaching methods. This class was formerly titled, "How to Design & Teach a Successful Workshop."
