Keeping your participants engaged can sometimes be challenging, that’s why it’s important for you to shift the focus away from your role as the trainer to the role of a facilitator.
Making it about them
Participants need to be engaged in discussions, have an input and feel that whatever they are contributing to the class matters. After all that’s why they are called participants they need to participate and not just passively listen to you lecturing 100% of the time. Be sure that you listen well, accept input, ask questions, encourage questions, and know when to be silent. Your main goal is to increase engagement and participation which will ultimately lead to learning.
