Is there a risk that your song and dance routine could lose its magic?
If you want you lessons to “stick”, you need to keep you learners’ engaged at and attentive from the beginning to the end of your lesson.
This video series will take you through a series of techniques to ensure engagement happens the moment your learning/training delivery starts. Engagement and attention is everything!
Learn powerful ways to spark your learners’ curiosity from the outset, and how to design and deliver lessons that feel personally real, relevant, and useful to maximise students learning of skills and knowledge.
Training and teaching whilst “keeping it real” every time will ensure you learners are fully tuned in and process information deeply - and on a personally relevant level so everything you teach, really “sticks”.

- Visual Overview
'What are we going to do' - tell them first in a different way!
Give them the BIG picture. To truly engage Learners from the start you need to give them the big picture and overview. This video gives you a Brain friendly alternative way of doing this as opposed to the usual Power Point slide with the typed-up bullet point Expectations and Learning Outcomes. It is a powerful explanation of the journey these videos are going to take you on.
- Early Engagement Part 1
Are your students ready to learn?
This first video clip on Early Engagement explains how important it is to get students mentally present and ready to learn. It talks about the five key states to assist the Brain to learn. The first few minutes of any workshop is essential to set the scene; in particular you want to set the scene that this Training will be Different and exciting. You then have Mental engagement.
- Early Engagement Part 2
Get them early and get them quick. This second video on Early engagement builds on part 1 and goes through several ideas which, when used in the first 5- 6 minutes, will grab the learners’ interest and curiosity so they become mentally in the room ready to learn.
- Keeping it Real Part 1
Make your training “Real, Relevant and Useful”!
This is what people are hungering for from training and education. This Principle of Brain Friendly Training is vital for engagement and transfer into the workplace. It does have to be planned for and implemented. There are three modules that suggest things you could need to do in the Design phase before the event, during the event and post the event to achieve this. In this first module we will look at practical things you can do before the workshop to ensure great transfer of new skills into the workplace.
- Keeping it Real Part 2
'Do it' to make your training “Real, Relevant and Useful”!
Model your training on good Driver Education. Training can’t be just a talk fest, it must be experienced. Be clear that your students need to experience, not just 'know' the theory for real and sustainable learning to occur.
- Keeping it Real Part 3
Realtime transfer to make your training “Real, Relevant and Useful"
The training has finished but the Real learning is about to start. This module is about how you can set up support for the learner post the event. It is full of ideas that reinforce the learning and assist the learner to cement the information that they have learnt in the formal training environment and transfer this into their workplace.
- Universal Experiences
Help your students 'get' new info!
By telling a story or using a metaphor it will become more alive and impactful if it is built around a Universal experience that your students can relate to. Again in Brain science and adult Learning Principles if we can link our teaching to previous learning or experiences it facilitates a quicken understanding of concepts and more powerful retention. The use of Universals in our delivery is the wire that makes connections.
- Conscience Convincers
Experience and feel the concepts!
This is one of the most power teaching tools we have. They involve the student actually experiencing concepts within their own bodies first, having a WOW experience and then being hungry and receptive to the theory. Be prepared to experience this yourself during this video and have fun doing it.
