COURSE IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS
KEEP THEIR ATTENTION
The GK Speaking implementation process is based on our managing director’s (Grant Kitchen) years of experience in the training and entertainment industries.
Every lesson in a GK Speaking course is based on three key factors:
1. Course participant involvement through speaking, grammar and soft skills exercises
2. Course participant attention level
Research has shown that a participant’s attention levels dramatically change within the first hour of a lesson, and it’s the facilitator’s responsibility to identify these changes and adapt!
As you can see participant’s attention levels will dramatically decrease within the first 40 minutes of a course and therefore their learning potential is lost to the world of day dreams and the longing to be somewhere else!
At GK Speaking we are aware of this factor and have created ‘Attention Seeking Devices’ to maintain the participant’s attention level with the intention of giving them the best learning opportunity.
Some of our “Attention Seeking Devices’ are:
- Anecdotes (stories)
- Quotes from experts (Facts and Statistics)
- Repetition or Restatements
- Audience participation exercises
3. Course participant’s motivation
At GK Speaking we are dedicated to achieving positive measurable results. In today’s work climate, company professionals are burdened by increased workloads within rigid deadlines. Therefore a motivated dynamic facilitator who can empathise with a course participant is the key ingredient to create an inspirational learning environment!!
