A Learner Centered Training Approach
Participatory, or participant centered learning can be defined as an experience whereby learners interact with subject content, transforming and discussing with others, in order to internalise meaning and make connections with what is already known (Nicol & Macfarlane, 2007). Even if there is no agreement on the precise definition of this type of learning, the core assumptions are active engagement in learning and learners responsibility for the management of their learning.
Training with an Impact
At the Learning Flow, we develop learning programs that constantly engage participants, helping them to make meaning of newly acquired skills and knowledge, to apply new practices to their professional context, leading to a stronger training impact.
Innovative Training Activities
Participant centered training programs include innovative activities with the goal to enhance participation, support networking, solve problems, inspire solutions and in the end, build learning.
These activities are carefully designed or adapted in order to reach the desired Intended Learning Outcomes. They may range from WorldCafe, to Open Space, Knowlegde Fair, case studies, role plays, FishBowl discussion, Jigsaw activity, Concept mapping etc.
