Designing and Facilitating Learning Experiences that Make a Difference: The Power of Active Experiential Learning

LearnRT is sponsoring a preconference at ALA Annual in Orlando taking place on Friday, June 24 (8:30AM-12:00PM):

Designing and Facilitating Learning Experiences that Make a Difference: The Power of Active Experiential Learning

Are you tired of "Sage on the Stage" presentations and trainings? Have you been to presentation after presentation that didn't result in anyone --including you --actually doing something different? That's because the kind of deep learning that leads to real change happens when we make meaning from our own experience and then design a plan to apply our new understanding to real life situations. Come to this highly engaging program and experience for yourself the power -- and fun -- of active, experiential learning.

This workshop will be facilitated by Peter Bromberg and Sharon Morris

This is a ticketed event and pre-registration is recommended. Advanced registration closes on June 17.

LearnRT Member: $120
ALA Member: $150
Non Member: $200
