Laurie Allan facilitated a great learning and development session on September 25th at the University of Rochester Facilities Learning Center (Michelle Lewis, thank you for hosting).  There were eleven participants whose experience ranged from fairly new to training to seasoned training professionals.  

The session incoroporated learning activies focused on engaging adult learners with an emphasis on practice and reflection.  Areas covered included:

  • Ice breakers
  • Adult Learning Principles
  • Ground rules
  • Training, Learning and Development
  • Task & Process
  • Metaflow (learning process)
  • Learning activities
  • Best practices in rapid engagement
  • Five Levels of Human Energy
Participants brought a current training program/module that they are working on with them to the session and applied their new learnings working in small groups.  This resulted in improved learning processes focused on learner engagement and retention.
