MRWED Launches Facilitator-led Online Training via Zoom

Our trainers may be holed up at home due to travel restrictions, but their passion for training is still being unlocked by our students. In response to the COVID-19 shutdown, MRWED has transformed its popular face-to-face experience into dynamic, facilitator-led online Zoom sessions.

These are available weekly to support students who prefer to learn collaboratively, via live, structured learning events.

With so much being reported about the evolving 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, I wanted to reach out personally to discuss the actions and precautions we are taking. 

Four Ways to Deal with Difficult Behaviours in Training

Managing difficult behaviours in training can sometimes be more challenging than learning the subject matter or getting the timing right. Often classroom management is not covered in trainer preparation courses (or undergraduate teaching degrees, for that matter) so we are often ill-prepared to deal effectively with distracting, negative or counter-productive behaviour. Below are four techniques to assist trainers in getting back that control.

Using Flipcharts in Training

We know what you’re thinking: “Flip charts? Aren’t those so old school?” The answer: yes, but they also happen to be one of the most effective and affordable training tools available. First of all, they are low tech. You can use flip charts in a variety of environments regardless of electrical and technological resources. Secondly, and most importantly, they enhance the learner experience.

Five Methods for Fostering Learner Motivation

Every trainer has found themselves in the predicament of standing in front of a classroom full of people who would rather be anywhere else. It feels like an impossible task to overcome: We know that people learn best when they are motivated, but you cannot motivate other people. So, what is a trainer to do? You may not be able to motivate others, but you can create an environment that encourages self-motivation.

12 activities to put interaction into webinar training

Humans are social learners. The more involvement there is, the more likely they are to connect with and remember the content. However, it is very common for webinar training to be a more passive, “sit and get” journey rather than an active and participative experience. It should be remembered though, that when there is less involvement, retention is diminished.
