- Greg Owen-Boger Training
In this video, produced by the Association for Talent Development (ATD), Greg Owen-Boger, Turpin’s VP, encourages you to embrace lecture.
Greg here with Turpin Communication. Conventional wisdom in the industry goes something like this: lecture is bad, activities are good. And I’m not so sure I agree with that. I mean lecture, if done well, and honestly, that is a big if, can be efficient, direct, and really easy to prepare for. You just want to make sure that the lecture isn’t boring. So I always tell our clients, “Find enthusiasm for something. If you can’t find it for the topic, find it for the individuals that are in the room. You should be able to find enthusiasm for helping them learn. And when you do this, it will make all the difference in lecture.”
