Research shows that the traditional lecture is the equivalent of distributing a report. Doesn’t mean your audience will read it, retain it or even apply it. So, do you want your audience to hear your presentation or learn and apply it? If you want them to learn it and remember it so they can apply it, you’ll have to change what you’ve usually done. Increasing your audience’s engagement through peer to peer discussions, activities and reflection exercises will increase their learning and retention and ultimately their ability to apply it.
- Compare expert-centered and participant-centered education.
- Define engagement and why it’s necessary to increase your listeners’ learning.
- Identify the steps to transition your traditional lecture to an interactive peer to peer presentation.
