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.

Working with Florence has been an absolute pleasure. She has been able to transform rapidly and effectively a static text into a lively, varied and innovative training course, which we have been able to adapt to a variety of events with diverse audiences and in diverse geographical contexts. Throughout the process she has showed extreme flexibility, endless patience and the capacity to get in depth in a very specialized subject.

During most of the training programs I attend, I feel like looking at my watch regularly. Not during this one though, as there was no time to get bored!
