Facilitators looking to improve the ease and efficiency of their training procedures as well as making training more effective, interesting and enjoyable for participants will find these 35 activities, based on Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, just what they have been looking for. While the theory of multiple intelligences has revolutionized educational practices around the world over the last two decades, until now there has been little guidance in how to apply it to workplace training and development. These 35 activities address this gap with games, questionnaires, role plays, guided reflections and other hands-on activities designed to help facilitators provide participants with: Ã¢Â¢ Icebreakers which illustrate the uniqueness of personal abilities; Ã¢Â¢ Guidance for the identification of your own intelligences and preferences for learning; Ã¢Â¢ Methods of improving written or verbal communication; Ã¢Â¢ Identification of trainer preferences for learning and teaching; Ã¢Â¢ Procedures for improving team work and team building; Ã¢Â¢ Valuing and support for workplace diversity; and Ã¢Â¢ Alternative methods of problem solving. Each of the 35 activities provides the facilitator with a ready-to-use plan of what the activity should accomplish, the materials, suggested timing, OHPs, worksheets and a step-by-step facilitation process of everything from motivation to conclusions to be drawn and questions to be asked. In addition, each activity closes with an annotated set of resources such as books, articles, videos or websites. These activities will change forever how facilitators teach as well as how participants think about themselves and those they work with, whether employers, clients or customers of the wider community.
