Trying to engage and inspire 30 jet-lagged, yawning Russian education agents with limited English on day two of a familiarisation tour sharing the wonders of your university can be extremely challenging. Getting the dreaded morning training timeslot for agents, dusty from the previous evening’s events, or a group simply too shy to talk in front of their peers for fear of losing face sounds like teaching ESL again.
Tapping into the insights of our learning and development staff, education teams, and marketing and sales staff can access some great techniques and latest technologies to ensure we are creating innovative, engaging and memorable training and events.
This e-poster presentation will share and demonstrate two easy-to-use (and free) presentation software tools, Mentimeter and Kahoot. Attendees will use their own mobile devices to take part and ideally create their own short quiz in groups.
Through this e-poster, attendees should be:
* able to recognise the value of engaging the audience by using interactive techniques as part of their presentations
* be aware of the different implementations of the presentation software Mentimeter and Kahoot, including how to elicit feedback from their audience using work cloud and voting functions.
* able to demonstrate how to create a short pop quiz.
