Posted on August 25, 2011. Filed under: Good Ideas Stick, Tips for HandsOn Partners | Tags: |

Join MVVMA for it’s September Meeting and Training.

Wednesday, September 14th at 8:15 am

Fresh Start Market

Got training for staff or other community members coming up? Are you new to the training role or has it been awhile? Uncomfortable in front of a group? Trying to recall all those “rights and wrongs” you’ve learned about training over the years? Never fret! Our experienced panel of trainers have a combined total of over 50 years training on the job, and have they got some tips for you!

Join us to discuss topics like:

1) Pre-training assessment (what to know ahead of time about your audience, the room, the day’s agenda, your equipment, preparing back-up plans)

2) How to avoid delivering a speech and make training “hands-on!” (props, games, activities, methodologies for grouping and turning the room around to get your audience talking);

3) Tricks for dealing with challenging learners;

4) How to engage a larger group when learners are at obvious different levels of background/knowledge – how do you tailor the training to what they need to know? Walk away with good resource lists and a bag of tips, tricks and tools for your training toolbox!

Did you miss one of the HandsOn Connect trainings in early August? Have no fear! There are still plenty of opportunities to get the support you need as you learn the system. Below are a few options.

  1. You can hop on the system and explore it on your own. The entire training manual is available under the Documents tab when you log in.
  2. You can set up a one on one meeting with a HandsOn staff person. We will walk you through the basics and be there to answer questions.
  3. We plan to host another training opportunity in October. If you still are struggling, come by and we will work together to figure it out! Training dates and times will be available soon.
