Humour can help you make your training sessions just as engaging as fun social occasions. Even better, you don’t need to be the class clown or an award-winning comedian to do it. This course will give you some easy ways to use activates and humour to make your training experiences fun and engaging.
Most people have been at a party or some other social occasion where someone has told an inappropriate joke and ruined the mood (at least temporarily). Likewise, we’ve all been somewhere where the class clown is able to lighten the mood and help people have fun.
Trainers need a framework for creating activities so that they can appeal to the range of learners in any class. This course includes information on getting buy-in for activities, appealing to reluctant participants, troubleshooting, as well as a handy template for designing your own activities. You’ll also learn some activities that are easy to modify and can be used to support different learning objectives.
