Do you deliver trainings to nonprofit people? Would you like to create active, effective training FAST? Using Guila Muir's Kite Method, you will learn a process to create lively, practical workshops for the rest of your professional career.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Name the two essential components of the Kite approach to instructional design.
  • Create and share Kite Frames for the next classes you will deliver.
  • Model at least two new effective training delivery skills.
  • Receive helpful feedback from your colleagues.

Join us for a training experience you will never forget! The workshop is limited to 40 people, so register soon. To support you as you put these ideas into practice, ten attendees will be able to get follow on support from instructional designer Tim Dawes.
