When people are kept from movingwhether they're sitting through a presentation or stuck behind a deskthey become restless and their attention waivers. Yet most training ignores the innate human desire for motion, resulting in participants learning less.Based on the latest neuroscience research, Training in Motion explains how movement enhances learning and introduces a unique and highly effective way to energize an audience and increase retention through simple body-focused techniques. The book shows readers how to:Tie lessons to movement to reinforce conceptsManage learners' physical and emotional states to increase engagement and bolster memoryUse posture, physical gestures, and other movements to command interestEmploy quick physical breaks to efficiently refocus studentsTurn lackluster sessions into high-achieving learning environmentsPractical, accessible, and packed with activities, this one-of-a-kind book helps readers add a kinesthetic component to their training so that participants stay motivated, and apply what they've learned long after they've left the classroom.
