In this case study-based, activity-driven learning lab, participants will be challenged to take a traditional PowerPoint-based workshop and flip it into an engaging activity-based session that achieves the same learning objectives without the use of slides. Throughout the session, learners will be exposed to a variety of alternative tactics for delivering content and elevating application at live training events.
