Spaghetti without the sauce

Do you have challenges getting your message across? Do you sometimes feel like what you say is not heard or understood? A little time spent on honing your communication skills can have huge payoffs in learner satisfaction. When we focus only on the ‘spaghetti' (the content) and not the ‘sauce' (motivation) we lose a great opportunity to engage and excite learners about our chosen field. This interactive session will include lots of ‘tips and tricks' for communicating clearly and heightening learner satisfaction in the classroom setting.
