Presentation Description

Lectures are boring. After 10 minutes we get fidgety, start zoning out, and learning goes down the tubes. Research shows that experiential education results in greater learning and engagement by participants. In this roundtable, we’ll explore the types of approaches that can be used, from case studies to ropes courses, hear how others have successfully implemented experiential training, discuss challenges and pitfalls, and ask questions to help you decide if, when and how your organization might incorporate experiential training in your staff development approaches. 

Attendees will:

  • Gain a greater understanding of why and how to use experiential education in trainings.
  • Learn how others have overcome challenges with implementing experiential activities.
