“Novelty: Why It’s a Brain-Changer for Learners” Contributed by Kelly Pfeiffer

Kelly Pfeiffer is a Certified Trainer for “Training from the BACK of the Room.” As part of the required assignments to become a Certified Trainer for TBR, she created an excellent and useful slide presentation to share with trainers and teachers everywhere. Enjoy this image-rich learning experience!

This is what Kelly teaches us about novelty:

“Novelty wakes up the human brain and, in a pleasant way, it says, ‘Pay attention. You’ll like this!’

There are endless ways to integrate novelty into training design and still stay focused on the important training content. Novelty elements work best when they compliment the learning atmosphere, not distract from it.

In my slide presentation below, I outline the the brain basics of novelty for trainers, teachers, and learning facilitators. The slides explain the why’s and how’s of using novelty. Plus, you’ll see great visual examples of novelty – ideas that you can easily integrate into your own classes and training programs.”
