Learning Dynamics for Instructors Coming to Blacksburg, VA

Learning Dynamics for Instructors (LDI) 2-day Workshop at the Hyatt Place Blacksburg, VA on June 8-9th, 2019!

Scope: LDI is an advanced workshop for individuals who have completed APICS’ Train-theTrainer (TTT) and have some presentation experience. LDI expands upon TTT’s presentation concepts, expanding upon them to promote interactive classroom dynamics. Its purpose is to recognize adult learning styles and to create hands-on training exercises to engage students. Attending LDI will increase your confidence and effectiveness as a professor, teacher, consultant, team leader, project manager, trainer or public speaker.

LDI is training, not education. Training deals with the how while education deals with the why. Training results in observable/measurable behavior on the part of the learner. This workshop is a hands-on, do-it-yourself, no-nonsense, intense 2-day immersion experience. Its two days consists of training activities with important pre-workshop assignments. Attendance is strictly limited to 12 slots to ensure individualized coaching.

Who Should Attend? Workshop participants will: Gain a better understanding of adult learning principles • Select training methods that increase retention • Mix teaching styles to match student or audience learning styles • Incorporate feedback into future training events • Deepen expertise in handling challenging classroom situations • Develop a Personal Development Plan to track improvements

Curriculum: LDI involves 2 full days of instruction, providing best practices such as Kolb’s Learning Model, methods to increase retention, Bloom’s Taxonomy, review and bridging tools and extemporaneous speaking. This workshop is unique in its ability to provide a FUN, SAFE atmosphere where people can develop a personal presentation style guaranteed to optimize their effectiveness and the quality of their message.
