The proven method to easily improve student engagement and create an effective and memorable classroom learning experience
As an instructor, trainer, facilitator or teacher, how many of these situations can you relate to?
Those students in the back row stop paying attention 30 minutes into your training and you're just not sure how to bring them back.
Only a handful of your students typically ask questions, but you'd like to know how to get more students involved.
You know that asking questions would get more students involved, but you're scared of losing control of the conversation and/or the class.
Because more of your students are quiet, you assume they are comprehending what you are teaching. But then those same students email or call you only days after your course with questions that they should know the answers to.
You regularly find yourself with way too much material to cover in the time that you have, which leaves you feeling rushed and exhausted.
Here's what I know: These classroom scenarios are very, very common. But, by tackling these scenarios the right way, you can be profoundly more effective in the classroom than you currently are or ever thought you could be!
In this 36-lesson, 4-hour course, you will learn:
Six critical facts and principles about your students and how they learn
Which of your current classroom techniques are not working and why they aren't working
How to apply the participant-centered tips and techniques of Facilitation
If you are willing to critically evaluate your current approach to training, be open to learning some new training techniques, and do some hard work both during and after this course, I will partner with you to help you become a dramatically more effective and confident trainer, instructor, facilitator, or teacher.
In other words: Once you've completed the Facilitation Basics course, you will never look at training the same way again!

- The Facilitation Basics course is for instructors, trainers, facilitators and teachers who are seeking to create a more engaging classroom learning experience. Whether you are a brand-new instructor or have been training for 40 years, you will learn an approach to delivering training content that will significantly enhance your effectiveness and confidence in the classroom.
(NOTE TO STUDENTS: The Course title was revised on July 2017, so don't panic when you see the "Facilitation Basics" slide. You're still in the right place!)
Let's begin by talking about those common problems that we all encounter in the classroom.
The content in this course is pulled from my live Facilitation Skills Train-the-Trainer workshop, which has been tested and proven with over 700 participants over the past 7 years.
To create a more effective classroom learning experience, you need to consider these 4 adult learning principles.
Alright, this is it. The moment when you put your bad training ways (and days) behind you. You are about to step into a brand-new world - the world of Facilitation. In this lesson, we draw the comparisons between what you've been doing and how you will start doing your training differently...and what that means for both you and your students.
The previous lesson may have been the linchpin, but this is where the heavy lifting happens. You may not be used to doing "prep work," but following the directions in this lesson will make or break your success in the classroom.
Fun happens here...because you designed it! And it's all about the activities you create. Once you have the concepts in this lesson in your toolkit, you will only be limited by your creativity.
Just because I like you guys, I'm offering this bonus!
It's an activity that I designed and have had great success with. And it allows you to give your students additional value in terms of the takeaway from the activity. Watch this lesson to learn how to implement this activity. Enjoy!
Now that you've completed all of your prep work, it's time to truly facilitate your class.
The first thing you need to consider is the room setup. Yes, we talked about this earlier. But now we have new information - specifically with regards to facilitation - that we need to consider.
This is not a repeat - do not skip this lesson.
Improving your students' retention of content from 10-20% to 70-80% all comes down to the critical information you want them to retain - what we call the key takeaways. In this lesson you will learn the two approaches to addressing those key takeaways.
In my years as a training student, instructional designer and facilitator, I've seen some crazy things in the classroom (you probably have too). But when it comes to managing your classroom, it doesn't have to feel overwhelming. Here are some things I've picked up and learned over the years.
After you facilitate your first class, I think you will appreciate not only your effort, but the effort that your participants put in as well. Realizing that, why would you end your class with, "Any questions? Ok, thanks," when you can do so much more. In this lesson, I describe how I close and celebrate my Train-the-Trainer workshops.
