Handout - Creating Engaging Learning Environments (450kb, pdf)


  Are you looking for a way to deliver educational programs that are more interesting and engaging for your audience? Do you ever get tired of presenting with PowerPoint or wonder if there are better ways to share information and create discussion among learners?

  This interactive seminar will introduce you to educator-tested, research-based instructional techniques that will help you more effectively deliver educational programming in a way that engages your audience. Participants should attend with an idea for an upcoming educational program that they can develop or refine during the session.

  Dr. Washburn enjoys assisting educators in refining their educational approaches to maximize learning. A Kansas native, he was at the University of Florida for six years before returning to Kansas. During that time he facilitated numerous workshops on effective teaching with domestic and international Extension audiences.
