A model for social experiential learning focused on choice.

Lecturing on its own is ineffective. But what’s the alternative? Combine the best of brain science and learning theory with the power of choice. Deliver meaningful training programs that stimulate your learners, rather than bore them to sleep.

Let Them Choose shows you how to get participants out of their seats and into station-based activities catered to distinct learning preferences, interaction types, and technology options. Part experiential, part social, and part emotional, the Cafeteria Learning Style model encourages learners to explore and absorb content at their own speed and direction. It puts learners in the best position to succeed.

Supercharge the relevance of your content by encouraging learners to act, problem-solve, and construct their own knowledge. Apply content (the ingredients) to a variety of interchangeable activities (the recipes) that result in learning experiences (the meal) that acknowledge their diversity. Allow them to choose whether to engage with your content through collaboration, competition, movement, or reflection, on their own or with a partner or group.

Adult learning experts Shannon McKenzie and Jillian Douglas walk you through designing, facilitating, and measuring a learning experience that’s proven to delight your learners. Watch retention and engagement soar as you use this easily replicable model to give your training program participants the freedom to choose.
