Are you looking for some new activities to engage your learners? 

Neuroscience is now proving what many L&D professionals have intuitively known for years: it is imperative to activate learners in meaningful ways for learning to occur and be retained.  At ATD ACE 2018 I’ll be sharing “7 Clever Ways to Energize Learners & Improve Retention.” Meanwhile, here are three more engagement activities that you can adapt and use in your workshops.

  • The Forced Choice activity can be facilitated during training and working meetings to better understand the viewpoints of your group about a topic. It gets everyone up, moving and talking about the topic of your course.

  • People Mapping is a fun, energizing icebreaker that can be used to emphasize the value of having different perspectives in the group. This is an active way to break the ice and get to know who is in the room.

  • 9 Dimensions is a powerful activity designed to build relationships and trust among team members. There are 2 variations of this icebreaker. The first version is for teams who want to get to know each other better. The second version is for teams who want to explore how they are working together as a team.
