Facilitating effective learning isn’t always easy, so we’re always looking for new ways to keep our learners and ourselves energized.

With that in mind, please join us for this adaptation of the ATD Sacramento Chapter’s “The Big Give”: a playfully refereed event in which all willing participants have up to 60 seconds to offer “a tip or piece of advice to share orally with the group. This might include

  • Your favorite blog
  • The best app you found in 2015
  • Something that has worked for years
  • A great book or article, a training tip
  • Or anything else that increases the facilitation skills of all members of our learning community
To get those facilitation juices flowing, here’s a link to the initial document prepared for the ATD Sacramento Chapter event; please note that our version will focus on tips for facilitators. We’ll take notes throughout the event, compile the tips provided through The Big Give, and make them available online after the conclusion of the event.
