Engaging Adult Learners Using Multiple Intelligences CD

Author(s): Constant Hine (click on the author's name for more titles)

This resource is delivered in CD format for use on your Macintosh and Windows computer. An internet connection is NOT required.

The more ways you teach, the more people you reach. - Colin Rose

The application of Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences to teach children also applies to how you teach adults. Whether you're presenting in a lunchroom, boardroom, classroom or ballroom, you need to address the eight ways of learning to get your message to stick.

Just because content is offered doesn't mean it is learned. "Engaging Adult Learners Using Multiple Intelligences" will help you adapt your existing content to increase learner motivation through a systematic instructional approach to address the individual strengths and diverse intelligences of ALL the adults in your audience.

This is not your typical "speaker guide" that looked good in the bookstore but is now gathering dust on your bookshelf because it is so cumbersome to use. Rather, this is an interactive toolkit presented in digital format on CD, complete with hyperlinks that let you search and skip to exactly what you are looking for.

This resource "walks the talk," presenting strategies for teaching adults in the same way content should be thoughtfully presented to teach for understanding. It includes:

• 18 videos demonstrating teaching strategies in a live setting

• 49 active engagement activities sorted by intelligence

• 32 downloadable Word and PowerPoint templates you can modify to your specific content These down-to-earth practical strategies will help you address the learning principle that an audience's interaction with content is actually more important than the presentation of the content. This dynamic resource will transform your presentations, creating lasting change through authentic engagement, empowered learning, and intentional practice.
