Pop-Quiz Homework for HRDQ Webinar Participants, March 20th 2019
Here is the “Pop Quiz Homework” for my March 20th 2019 webinar, “Brain-Based Presenting: Getting the Brain to Pay Attention,” sponsored by HRDQ, a globally-recognized developer of research-based instructional materials.
On the HRDQ website, you’ll find dozens of free webinars, as well as for-purchase training games, assessments, workshops, and simulations for instructor-led classroom learning, and e-learning and e-assessments for distance learning.
“Pop Quiz Homework” is one of my webinar’s “Follow-Up” activities. Brain scientists call them “spaced practice” – activities that help move learning into long-term memory.
Below is the most important of the follow-up activities for “Brain-Based Presenting,” and the one that comes with a special free “thank you” from me to you:
Pop Quiz Homework
“How were the elements of NOVELTY, CONTRAST, MEANING, and EMOTION used during the “Brain-Based Presenting” webinar to get YOUR brain to pay attention?”
Answer the question above in a paragraph or two and send your answer to me via email at email@example.com or type your answer into the “comments” section below (it will appear in my website’s “inbox” so that I can respond).
As my way of saying “thank you” for taking the time to do the Pop Quiz Homework, I will email you my complimentary ebook “Presenting With Pizzazz!”
If you haven’t already downloaded the webinar handout, click on the following link:
On one side of the handout are “Warm-Ups” and “Follow-Ups” – resources to explore before and after the webinar. On the other side are note-taking boxes that participants used during the webinar.
“Warm-Ups” are resources that help get the brain ready to learn before a training event. Brain-scientists call these “priming” activities.
“Follow-Ups” are resources that help move new learning into long-term memory. Brain scientists call these “spaced practice” activities.
Both “Warm-Ups” and “Follow-Ups” are important parts of successful, brain-based instruction, whether online or face-to-face.
Also, be sure to click HERE for the free, downloadable infographic that accompanies the webinar.
The concepts covered in the webinar were taken from my book titled Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick, available on Amazon. The book covers six learning principles that trump traditional training and contains the instructions for 30 activities (plus e-learning variations) that are tied to the six learning principles.
While on my website, be sure to explore all the free resources and give-aways. And of course, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions and comments. Pay it forward: teach someone something! 🙂
