KIN Masterclass: Embracing Experiential Learning

Registration Required

This one-day interactive masterclass will go beyond just the use of experiential exercises in learning programmes and help participants think about maximising learning from every group experience.

In order to learn, people need to combine new learning with things they already know and make 'tacit' learning 'explicit' in order to make it retrievable and therefore likely to actually be applied. If you want to help people across all parts of your organisation to be able to learn in a more engaging and sustainable way, this workshop is for you!

Learning Points
  • Why experiential learning is 'better' learning (the science)
  • How to get the most out of experiential exercises through active and creative review
  • How to present and look at models in an engaging and experiential way
  • How to maximise learner engagement

Shirley Gaston is the founder of Azesta, an experiential learning organisation.

She has specialised in creating and delivering experiential learning for more than 20 years and has run many workshops on the topic as well as speaking at CIPD conferences and regional events.

As the head of a unique ILM centre, Shirley has delivered hundreds of experiential leadership and team development programmes and qualifications. She is passionate about making sure that every bit of learning or knowledge that we put across has the maximum chance of going into a learner's retrievable memory!

She has worked with KIN on a number of occasions and her approach is informal and fun! She also runs a Brain Friendly Learning Group for practitioners in Yorkshire.

Who should participate
  • L&D Managers
  • Facilitators
  • Knowledge managers
  • Community Leaders
  • Anyone that wants to help people learn and wants to do it better
