No More Boring Safety Trainings


3/31/20 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

We’ve all sat through an educational or training session during which it was painful to pay attention and stay awake. During this webinar, we’ll share some techniques and tools available to help spice up your trainings. The speaker will discuss and display techniques/tools he has used during the several hundred trainings he has conducted. He’ll also cover tips for building effective PowerPoints and keys when developing handouts.

This will not be a “PowerPoint 101” session. Instead, it will focus on simple rules and techniques for when to use pictures and videos. We’ll discuss inexpensive games and interactive materials that can be used to make your trainings more hands-on for the learner. The speaker will discuss group interactive tools to engage and gauge your attendees’ knowledge. The provided materials are targeted for attendees to take with them specific games, slides, tools and ideas. Overall, this webinar will aim to provide a few tips to make your trainings a little more interesting while engaging your target audience with the material.
