Sometimes, education feels like we’re in a wheel. Walking and walking but not really going anywhere.
If this sounds familiar, you have experienced basic content consumption.
The big challenge is it’s easier to create content for attendees to listen to, to teach at them. It’s harder to develop engaging, interactive courses. Of course there are “clickers” and ways to make a talk more interactive. Harder still, to teach with them and to create opportunities for peer to peer interaction.
The key is the application piece – to try the actionable steps – and learn from your peers, which creates a more effective way for people to learn.
PS – apparently it is not safe for guinea pigs to use wheels. Hamsters yes, guinea pigs, not so much…in case you were wondering.
