Instructional Design - the Key To Student Engagement : 11 Powerful Classroom Activities For Corporate Learners
Purposeful Activities that Engage Your Adult Learners and Create Memorable Learning Experiences
In this course, you will find 11 easy-to-implement but powerfully effective classroom activities. They are designed to purposefully engage your adult learners, which in turn creates a more memorable learning experience.
If your current training course is nothing more than a presentation, and you just can't find the time or don't feel comfortable engaging your students, then this course can absolutely help you.
The 11 activities in this course are ones that I have either experienced as a student or designed and modified myself over the last 12 years. I have used each one of these very successfully in the corporate classroom.
My goal through this course is to educate, equip and inspire you to begin engaging your students early, often and on purpose.
This isn't about going in and "winging it."
It's about taking time to think through and prepare a strategy for how you will start engaging your students.
Good news: I've already developed that strategy for you. All you have to do is grab this course and go. Begin with one activity. Use it and evaluate its level of success. Tweak it and try again. Then add another activity. Before long, you will not think twice about including all 11 of these activities in your training course or courses.
And the value and benefits of these activities will be evident long before then. The activities in this course can help you become the training hero of your company.

Who this course is for:

- Trainers wanting to improve student engagement
- Trainers who want to apply instructional design essentials with these classroom training techniques
My 29+ years of experience in the classroom began when I was a very anxious graduate teaching assistant who was suddenly given a teaching role (that's a kind way of saying I was thrown into a classroom full of freshman students). I honestly had no clue what I was doing. But that initial experience revealed something very surprising to me: I enjoyed teaching. I still wasn't that good at it, but I enjoyed it.
So I worked harder, studied, experimented and gradually allowed more of my personality to come through in the classroom. That growth allowed me to develop a brand-new undergraduate class (while still a graduate student) and inspired me to eventually take on an adjunct instructor position - while working a full-time job and pursuing a 2nd Masters degree.
Over the last 12 years, my focus has been on corporate training, as I both introduced and led the use of Facilitation as the primary training methodology at Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating.
During that time, I designed a number of unique and effective training programs. And for 7 of those years, I designed and facilitated a Train-the-Trainer workshop specifically focused on our internal and external instructors. To date, 700 participants have completed that workshop.
My first Udemy course, Become an 11x More Effective Corporate Trainer This Year, reflects the core content from my live Train-the-Trainer workshop.
Little to no student engagement and a lack of creativity in the design and delivery of training programs are the two biggest issues that I focus on. I can teach you how to easily and consistently engage your students, while creating a fun learning experience for both your students and yourself!
I have designed and facilitated multiple training workshops, team-building and employee engagement events. I also write about creating engaging, memorable and unexpected learning experiences on my blog (see website link below).
