SIG: Facilitation Strategies for Engaging All Adult Learners

  • 14 May 2024
  • 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Zoom


  • ATDChi members


We've all been there. You walk into your classroom, and immediately recognize that you have a very diverse group of participants. Some sit alone, look at their phones, and don't talk to anyone. Others are more relaxed and chat among the people they know. Some bring laptops and notebooks, while others don't even bring a pen.

So, how do you engage a group with so many differences?

Let's uncover those answers together!

Christine Kostic will lead us in a discussion about 

Facilitation Strategies for Engaging ALL Adult Learners

(in both instructor-led and virtual training)

Christine Kostic

Immediate Past President

As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify several different adult learning styles
  • Apply new techniques and activities to engage with these different learning styles
  • Cater your training approach to adapt to neurodivergent participants
