About the Event

For too long, traditional classroom instructions have been created on the assumptions that they should be fact based. In the corporate world too, most of the training and lecture content is printed on power point slides. Some might not know that this is not the most effective way to teach or learn. The problems we face with this approach are, learners lose interest during the training or lecturing session and/or they can not retain the information given to them. Various researchers have shown brain based learning techniques are most helpful. Brains normal process is to learn new information or enhance any information. As long as our brains are not prohibited from fulfilling its normal process, learning will occur.

Join us as we understand and explore ways to make concept and training content stick to learners mind. Learn ways to make training interactive, fun and enjoyable by using the learning manifesto.
Teachers, trainers, coaches or even learners can create appropriate experiences and capitalize on those experiences.
