A Recipe for More Effective, Engaging Training Design

September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


How can we maximize the possibility that someone will not just learn but also use something you tell or show during a training session? How do we increase engagement so they are ready to transfer what they learn into what they do next? In this session, Brian Washburn will share a 4-step model that can be used to help give structure to every training session you’ll ever develop. He’ll provide specific examples of activities useful both in-person and online that can be strung together to generate effective, engaging training sessions that increase the likelihood that your learners will relate to, remember, and use your training content. You will leave the class with an expanded toolbox of activities and ideas on how you will use one or two of these activities in your next learning event.

Everyone who attends this session will receive a copy of Brian’s ebook: Endurance Learning’s Training Activity Cookbook, which offers 63 different activities that can be put together to create 42,000 different combinations of learning experiences.


Brian Washburn is the co-founder and CEO of Endurance Learning, a small-but-mighty instructional design firm that serves as an extra set of hands for organizations large and small, helping them design and develop learning experiences that are engaging and lead to change. He got his start in instructional design and training delivery as a Peace Corps volunteer in Paraguay, training farmers on small business skills to improve their local agricultural co-ops while increasing their family’s incomes. Since then, he has served as a training director in both the non-profit and NGO sectors, designing and delivering training to a wide range of audiences in the US and around the world. If you’d like to talk about training design and development, Brian is always happy to grab a virtual coffee. Drop him a line at brian@endurancelearning.com.
