Start Your Engines!!!

The Training Curve is back. We will be participating in a highly interactive session allowing you a voice in our program and priorities for the 2013 meetings. Star Fisher will be leading the group in a few NEW activities that you can leverage in your performance and training solutions.

The emphasis is on using Interactive Learning Events, some may think of them as training games, as performance solutions and not just classroom activities. Ever been in a meeting that seemed to not be going anywhere except boredom-ville? Ever had your manager ask for a fresh approach in a meeting? Then maybe you are looking for reframing training games into Performance Solutions.

Plans include participating in Group Scoop and more.

The Training Curve SIG is focused at helping trainers with their delivery and platform skills. It may touch on some design, but it really is meant to develop you as a presenter. We are going to try once again, the breakfast meeting format. So we will be meeting at Café Java starting at 7 am. We should be finishing between 8:30 and 9:00, which hopefully will give you a great start to your Friday morning without encroaching too much into your work hours.

Now, for all you e-Learning and electronic gurus who think “interactive” means online or computer-based…this is old school, we are talking people-interactive!
