Fab and drab
This is an occasional feature featuring a theme, and the best (fab) and worst (drab) of our experiences. Leaver your comments below.
What are your favourite or dreariest training venues? Ones we’ve thought are fab include the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, and the National Airforce Museum in Hendon. As for drab – that would be most local authority committee rooms – or worse still, their council chamber! Our most unusual venue (as an emergency) was a Little Chef cafe in Lincolnshire (see comment below for more details!)
2: Enlivening the learning
When you’ve attended a training course, what have you seen or done that has really livened up the learning? By contrast, what’s the least lively experience you’ve had?
Things we do to try and keep it lively include:
- backdrop entertainment slides (which we call slideas – see our other site (at the bottom of this site) for free examples
- spot tests or quizzes, usually with prizes
- short dvd extracts from films or the web
- sweets, mints and healthy snack bars..!
