About the session:

Adult learning, leadership and facilitation - these are all skills that are essential in our work and in our ability to present in-front of and work with groups. Yet, for many of us, teaching and facilitation, implementing learning through leadership, are concepts we learn about, but may not always have the opportunity to implement. This Train-the-Trainer workshop encompasses both adult learning theory, leadership and facilitation learning as well as the opportunity to practice your instructional techniques in a supportive, informative learning environment.
