Description

The enclosed literature focuses on delivering content through learner participation while increasing learning using creative modalities and participants’ dominant learning styles without increasing administrative cost to the school. Personal experiences of about 40 years in corporate executive and training as well as best practices gleaned from several different universities (graduate / undergraduate business programs using cutting edge technologies) are discussed and highlighted. Learner participation and interaction are critical to effective “experiential facilitation techniques” that increase learning and retention with adult participants. A major element of being or becoming effective educators involves understanding how students learn best and then integrating activities that best suit learning styles regardless of teaching modality. Compared to children and teens, adults need to be involved in the learning process.
