Every step you take ...

A popular part of our Brain Friendly Learning Group meetings is the Learning Clinic, when individuals bring along their presentation or training challenges, and in small groups, members enable each other to explore options for delivering information differently.

We're really pleased when members try out new ideas and share with us how it went afterwards. Sometimes these ideas don't always work as well as their innovators hope - and we've all got experience of that!

Our message is always 'well done' for trying, as every step you take is progress; keep on refining; sound out more experienced brain friendly practitioners for further guidance; and see how these additional 5 ideas can help.

The Royal Academy for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce has lots of multi-media resources you can access free from the comfort of your home or office. Check it out here.

PLUS there's an interesting article on L Brain, R Brain in politics here.

1. If your session's going to involve interactivity, make it interactive right from the off. 2. Never use the phrase 'role-play' - this may be demotivating to some in your audience. 3. Monitor body language carefully and if necessary give individuals permission to opt out. 4. Never ask your audience to do anything you're not prepared to do yourself. 5. Always need as many 'volunteers' for your exercises as there are people in the group.

To find out in-depth information about these suggestions, visit the BFLG Forum here and to experience these ideas and more in action, join us at October's Maximising Impact.
