    Conducting Training Games & Activities with  

    Dr. Sivasailam Thiagi 

    Join ISPI Central Florida November 16!

     

    Are you excited about training games and activities but anxious about losing control, wasting time, and being attacked by participants?   

    Based on 20 years of field experience and research, Thiagi shares with you three important secrets of effective training facilitation:

    Flexible Facilitation. Identify seven critical dimensions of activities-based training (including pace, intensity, competition, and playfulness). Learn how to select, maintain, and balance appropriate levels of these dimensions.

    Handling Disruptive Participants. Recognize participants from hell and their disruptive behavior patterns. Learn strategies for discouraging such patterns and specific tactics for handling each pattern.

    Debriefing. Identify the importance of the debriefing process for linking the training game or activity to the workplace reality. Learn a powerful six-phase model for maximizing learning from experience. 


    About Your Facilitator:

     

    Dr. Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan is the founder and Resident Mad Scientist at The Thiagi Group, an organization with the mission of helping people improve their performance effectively and enjoyably. 

     

     

    Thiagi served as the editor of ISPI's Performance & Instruction for more than 10 years. He has written a monthly GameLetter for 15 years; it currently appears as the GameBlog on this website.

    Thiagi has twice been elected the president of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), 27 years apart (in 1979 and 2006). He has also been the five-time president of the North American Simulation and Gaming Association (NASAGA).

    As a global nomad, Thiagi has lived in three different countries and has conducted training workshops in 21 others. Earlier in his life, he has been a high-school science teacher, street corner magician, researcher, editor of a professional journal, keynote speaker, college professor, USAID project director, and writer.

    Really Rapid Instructional Design

    (RRID)

    with  

    Dr. Sivasailam Thiagi 

    Join ISPI Central Florida November 17!

     

    Participate in this workshop and learn about a unique instructional design approach developed and field tested by Thiagi. Learn to use eclectic principles from extreme programming, agile software development, improv theater, creative engineering, and self-organizing complex systems. Stop using your grandfather’s ADDIE model and jump the curve to Thiagi’s continuous, concurrent, creative, co-design approach. Find the wisdom in such provocative ideas as letting the inmates run the asylum and building airplanes while flying them.

    Workshop Content:

    Module1. An Experiential Introduction to RRID. Deconstruct a training activity and use the template to immediately design your own activities.

    Module 2. Training as Performance Improvement. Select suitable performance improvement interventions to speed up and support training activities.

    Module 3. Step by Step? Combine, omit, modify, loop, iterate, and rearrange design steps to achieve agile design.

    Module 4. Content, Activities, and Objectives. Use validated templates to rapidly incorporate existing content resources in effective and engaging activities.

    Module 5. Changing Roles. Improve your training design by transforming participants into co-facilitators, co-designers, coaches, and evaluators. Also, transform the trainers into facilitators.

    Module 6. Evaluation and Continuous Improvement. Integrate six types of valid evaluation techniques with all design steps. Use the evaluation data to prove and improve the training package.

    Module 7. E-Learning and Virtual Classrooms. Adapt and apply the 4-Door™ approach to rapidly design e-learning courses and LOLAs (Live Online Learning Activities) to instantly design effective training webinars.
