INFORMAL LEARNING STRATEGY
– WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT CAN HELP YOU –
Description In a forever-changing world, the ability to learn new knowledge and new skills is more important than ever. Unfortunately, our current education system is aimed at getting students to follow instructions and get certificates rather than producing autonomous learners.
New recruits usually receive some sort of prescribed semi-formal training (here’s this & do that) but once left on their own, few are aware of how to develop a personal learning strategy to craft their skills for their current jobs or to prepare themselves for the next.
In this talk, Ian Gibbs, gives a brief outline of informal learning strategies to help you strengthen your skillset and give added value.
✓ Awareness of informal learning techniques
✓ How to develop a personal learning strategy
✓ How to become more intelligent in 24 hours

LET YOUR BODY TALK!
A practical dive into captivating stage body language
At the start of your life your physical creativity was unimpaired. As a six month old baby you made around 3,000 exploratory movements each day. At primary school you continued without inhibitions, delighting in your spontaneous physical expression. By secondary school however, you were forced to reign in your natural physical exuberance and sit on a chair for up to 6 hours a day. And from then on? Things probably only got worse.
Education and adulthood may have had a straitjacket effect on your non-verbal communication skills, but you were once a master communicator. You knew exactly how to captivate attention with imaginative body language.
This workshop is a practical dive into unearthing your former skill. By means of a few simple and enjoyable clown exercises, you’ll shake off inhibitions and rediscover your unique physical self-expression.
