We all know children learn a great deal while playing, but having fun during training or professional development programs may be seen as frivolous or a waste of time.
Scientific research begs to differ. Play breaks tensions during learning, provides fresh energy and helps teams build cohesion.
Adult play in workplace instruction enhances speed of learning and boosts performance results. But, what forms of fun work best in the diversity of instructional delivery?
Judith Blair and Nancy Maresh offer examples of highly effective games, a laughter lab, methods to engage employees through novel and refreshing activities backed by best practices and research.
Webinar participants will be able and motivated to:
â€¢ Distinguish among states of optimized stress and playfulness most conducive to learning, transfer and performance
â€¢ Design activities and program components that tap the brain’s natural abilities to meet challenges fast and effectively
â€¢ Determine what tactics produce creative problem solving and resilience during training and beyond
