Feeding on the information you have about the structure and techniques for memorable learning, design a 20 minute training session.  Your audience will be your colleagues on the workshop.  It could be an existing session or something you will be delivering in the future.  This will give you the opportunity to test you new skills and hear their feedback.

Testimonial from local county council delegate

Thanks for the update, as you said the memories came flooding back, sort of like strange holiday snaps!
The Brain Friendly course has had a marked effect on the way I train.

• I have banished tables.

• I now use laminates with pictures to support what I talk about on the PowerPoint, I put them up on the wall and people use them to refer back to during the training and write info down for themselves.

• I have included a slide with the spinal disc/doughnut theme on it (still wish I had a doughnut budget though).

• I use flip charts and get participants to take feedback (70/30)

• I have included a number of games and props.

• I try to pass on some of what you told us in my Training for Trainers course. I tell them to "make it sticky".

In general I think much more broadly about everything I pass on and feel sure I will make further changes in the future.

Many thanks for the interesting training and for the follow up emails.
