A 2 day trainer-training workshop with Roger Greenaway
Reviewing Skills and Tools for TrainersThe details of this programme may be adapted to suit participants' needs and interests, but the overall structure will remain as outlined below.
'Reviewing Skills and Tools for Trainers' is about improving the quality of the whole training experience - both during training exercises and during reviews. You will learn how to maintain full involvement throughout the learning process - ensuring that learners are alert, motivated and curious. You will learn a number of methods for keeping the connections alive between doing and thinking - rather than just alternating between these two modes of learning. Whatever the purpose of your training, a skilled and confident approach to reviewing will help to generate a highly productive climate for learning.

Escaping from default patterns

How reviewing can increase the impact and value of training programmes
Key issues about transfer: transfer, translate or transform?
What you can do before, during and after training events to promote transfer
Transfer within a training event
