Didactic Design for content matter experts

Learn to design a training that motivates participants and allows them to really learn

2 days

Your training program as a foundation

Do you feel that you yourself often work harder than your group? Or that participants in break out groups have a hard time practicing?

You can avoid a lot of trouble during your training with an effective design. With the right balance of theory and practice, smart exercises and always the focus on the practical challenges of your participants.

How do you make informed choices how to set up your training for the best learning outcome ? That's what this two-day event is for.

 

Building your own training

You can train more comfortably when you know the design of your training is well put together. Knowning the exercises are relevant, instructive and engaging all participants right from the start. 

Therefore, during this two-day program, you'll work on a makeover of your own training or design a new one fresh from the start, using the didactic method of De Galan.

Thus, you work on a program that you can use immediately in your own practice.

And you'll never have to work your way through 53 slides for a silent group again.

Reviews

'The set up of my training is right!'

I really threw as much information as I could over the fence. They thought it was fun, educational, but putting it into practice; not at all!. I didn't know how to reduce the amount of material and still not miss anything important. Now I got the whole outline of my training just right and people are enthralled. Less is more, I learned! My participants stay focused in all the exercises and go home with the feeling that they have learned something useful and confident that they will actually use it.

'I now know what I'm doing'

I developed my trainings with great care, but purely on experience and feeling. As a result, preparation took me a long time and I wasn't sure if it was right. The latter in particular caused stress beforehand each training. I have now given the training I designed during the program twice. The participants gave my training 3x a 9 and 3x a 10, and rated me as a trainer with 2x a 9 and 4x a 10! I could never have done this if I had not taken the program. I now know much better what I am doing and how to achieve real learning results with the participants.
