101 Ways to Make Training Active
Do you want to create a lot
of training in a little time? Do you wonder how to involve your learners without
wasting their time, or yours? Do you want to use your training time wisely and
The Ten-Minute Trainer
is just what you need. Written for the busy
training professional, this practical, grab-it-and-go book will show you how to
design and deliver effective training programs in less time and with increased
learner retention. Based on two major concepts—shorter segments of instruction
are better than longer ones, and learners remember more when they are involved
in the learning—this book provides 150 quick, high-energy ways to involve your
learners without sacrificing content. This timely resource will also help you
organize your training time so that your learners get the most from your
instruction. With The Ten-Minute Trainer as your guide, you will
be able to:
Choose from 140 "Got a Minute?" activities proven to help
learners review, repeat, and remember important information.
Use 10 short "Take Five!" games to RAP up the
learning—Reinforce, Apply, and Practice—so that learning is moved rapidly
into long-term memory.
Soak up ordinarily wasted instructional minutes with 30 Time Sponges such
as Quick Starts, Take a Break, and Early to Finish activities.
Apply 2 powerful instructional tools—the Learning Compass and Training
Map—to shorten your training design and delivery time.
Include 4 "Get a CLUE!" elements to increase motivation and
Use 5 Power-Hour Training Templates to create a custom training session
on any topic, for any size group, and any age learner.
Change your concept of training time as you use small but mighty seconds
and minutes in creative, interesting, and memorable ways.
Become a more time-efficient training professional and be able to explain
the what, why, and how of it all to your training colleagues.
