Reviewing Skills for Outdoor Trainers
Maximising Learning from
Outdoor Management Development
This workshop will help you maximise the impact and value of the activities in your own training programmes. The skills and insights that you gain can be applied to any settings in which experience is used as a source of learning and development. The experiential and interactive style of this event will help you to make the learning relevant to your own work.
Why develop reviewing skills?
Reviewing is probably the most important and underdeveloped skill in experience-based training. Better reviewing helps participants get more value from the training you provide.
What kind of reviewing?
Flipcharts and questioning skills are central features of many reviewing styles, but many learners will benefit from taking part in more varied and dynamic approaches. Ideally, reviewing is at least as engaging as the activity being reviewed.
What is reviewing?
‘Reviewing’ applies both to what the learner does when reflecting on their experience as well as to what the trainer does when helping others to reflect, share and learn from their experiences. You will be developing skills for helping others to learn.
By taking part in this workshop you will develop a wide variety of reviewing and facilitation skills that will help managers gain full value from their outdoor experiences.
