“Learning is the gateway to optimal life experiences. Learning transforms people’s lives, and teaching, in any forum, is the art and science of bringing out the brilliance that drives those transformations.”
But teaching isn’t always like this. What often happens is that people who teach – in classrooms, meetings, workshops, coaching sessions, or any other setting where learning happens – dont know how to teach effectively.
They spend 70 percent of their time on what they are teaching and only 30 percent on how to teach it, when it should be the other way around.
Halsey shows how to create content that is clear, relevant, easily absorbed, and readily retained because it is tailored to each participants specific needs, abilities, and inclinations.
Halseys six-step ENGAGE Model replaces the old sit n get model with woo n do. Learners are actively drawn in and perform activities that reinforce the learning.
She presents hundreds of proven ideas, strategies, and practices that will enable readers:
- to Energize learners at the beginning of any learning session
- help them Navigate the new content and Generate personal meaning and relevance from it
- Apply their learning to the real world
- Gauge and celebrate their progress
- Extend their learning to action
