  1. Drama in Training
    Hi Stephanie

    I will comment on one aspect, the ‘role play element’ Our team recently enjoyed a session with a drama group who specialised in, not replacing role play, but viewing it differently to get the most from it. One of the techniques we used was to get a small group, 2-3 people and get them to create a ‘still photo’ by positioning themselves in such a way that it explains a situation.
    We had the scenario where the trainer was stood up explaining and the learners all had to convey different feelings, boredom, interest etc. As a group, we then analysed things like trainers position, what could be done next, why has this happened
    It also provides answers to difficult situations by walking through them and getting everyones input
    Good luck

  2. Innovation Ideas
    Hi Stephanie,
    I am sure the training shop are going to love me for this! I use their big white blank jigsaw pieces when helping delegates to understand the bigger picture, you can write processes/procedures on the pieces and get people to connect them. I also use their large white clouds on which people can map out processes and connections, (they visually more attractive than flipchart) Delegates can then understand othe scope of anothers role.
    As for increasing delegates desire to learn have you tried sending out some engaging pre-event reading material, it could be a competetive word search, a crossword, bingo, with a prize presented at the event. This enables your delegates to connect to the content, facilitator and/or other learners prior to the event.

  3. Encourages teams to interact and contribute more
    A new product is available

    It allows you to create a whiteboard from a roll – anywhere in seconds.

    We have found that trainers and giving it to groups of people – who then write down their ideas and thoughts. It’s great for ideas generation.

    It’s erasable so people are more likely to contribute to the debate.

    The whole group then sticks these to the walls. You don’t need Bluetac or tape because it sticks using static. Therefore, it leaves no marks on the walls.

    It’s like having a portable flipchart – but better. It comes on a 20 metres roll (25 sheets) and costs £14.40 plus VAT and P&P

    Hope this help you.
