Maximize engagement and retention with less talk and more interaction!

Today′s students learn best by doing—as do most of us. This newest resource from Ron Nash is designed for educators who would rather "show" than "tell" to create highly interactive workshops. Packed with anecdotes, brain-compatible strategies, and checklists, the book provides practical tools for engaging participants to talk, reflect, brainstorm, and stretch beyond their comfort zones. Highlights include:

Techniques for shifting 80% of the workshop′s workload to participants

  • Keys to enhancing retention with storytelling and laughter
  • Methods for analyzing and evaluating your presentations for ongoing improvement
  • Tips for extending learning beyond the workshop

The Active Workshop is ideal for seminar trainers, seminar facilitators, principals, and teacher leaders—anyone who works with elementary, secondary, and college educators in a training capacity.
