→ During the session
Just like in an interview, the first 5 minutes of the training are made to allow the participant feel comfortable. Big smiles, an informal breakfast, a well spelled badge … These little details that will allow you to start the day on a healthy basis.
The host must take the opportunity to present his career and highlight his experience to be seen an expert in the field.
The ice breaker
The ice breaker, as the term implies it, breaks the ice in a group so that participants are more comfortable during the training.
It always takes place at the very beginning and is often a game. There are many examples on the web (the name game, the goal, a world map …)
This is a simple exercise that will facilitate communication for the rest of your meeting, especially if the training actors do not know each other.
Who does not have horrifying memories from school due to teachers that never involved their students in class or even questioned the understanding of what they had just taught?
Interaction will involve your interns. In fact, the point of face-to-face activities is just that!
Participants must be able to share at the beginning of the session the reason why they are here and what their goal is, while being able to ask questions, perform a debate and especially exchange their own experiences.
Therefore, plan practical cases with feedback or brainstorming sessions in order to maintain their attention.
A new trend in training is gaming, which makes your formation sessions more attractive and effective.
The 3 most important facts for a training game are:
- – Motivation. Your interns should not stay inactive, help them to emerge in a warmth environment and encourage participation.
- – Collaboration. Involve the participant in the training process. The success of this dynamic will depend on his/her involvement.
- – Interactivity. Learning with interactive activities makes it possible to better retain the information taught during the training process
