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!

Who this course is for:
- 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.
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).
