Methodology – How we train

In this course, the projector is absent. The learning content is conveyed in a triad of theory, hands-on experience and exchange of ideas and experiences over two days. Alternatively, this training can also be carried out virtually – highly interactively – online on four mornings.

We are committed to sustainable learning that is as effective as possible. That’s why our courses are designed to be interactive and highly practical.

This means, among other things, that we work in small groups, use training concepts from the training “From the back of the room” as well as elements from positive psychology and brain-based learning.
