Stop the Crickets: Engaging Your Audience (TD1967)

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Location: Wine-Price Building

Workshop Description: “I want to engage my audience,” is what most who have audiences are expressing. Many people in your audience are tired - at least a third of them just don’t get enough sleep. If not tired, they are used to being continuously engaged by modern technologies: smart phones, Netflix, and social media. Part of our jobs is to help participants stay awake, pay attention, participate in the discussion, and think about the content we’re sharing. Join us to learn some practical tips and techniques for ensuring audience participation and avoiding the sound of crickets chirping!

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn how to create a safe learning environment for workshop participants
  • Explore appropriate strategies to keep workshop participants engaged
  • Demonstrate best-practice facilitation and adult learning techniques
