Living the Learning:

Design airtight activities that lead participants to the right
conclusions with minimal re-directing

Facilitate substantive sharing time that allows participants to
draw the conclusion from the activity

Frame the participants’ conclusions with the formal vocabulary of
the associated principles so that participants share one common
language

Provide ample opportunities for participants to reflect and to
apply their learning in simulated and real-world experiences

Learning We learn best by
listening to the
Beliefs
expert on the
topic
Limitation Adults retain 510% of what they
hear
40-50%
We learn best by listening to
the expert and then having a
chance to apply it
Leader does the heavy
cognitive work: participants
imitate but don’t build their

Living the Learning
(AA, R, S, F, A)
Activity sparks learning
Facilitated Sharing
Framing: formal language
around participants’
sharing
Reflection
Application: put it into
practice
15-30%
We learn best by generating
the knowledge through
experience and then applying
it to our context
Requires precisely built
activities that lead to the
proper conclusions; takes far
more time to plan & more
work to facilitate
CORE IDEA
If you want to get good at a skill, you have
to implement it yourself.
Participants – not the presenter – need
to do the heavy lifting in a workshop.
