Revitalizing Role Play

How many times have you heard, "We hate to role play"! Many trainers have given up on this tried-and-true technique. It has been done poorly for so long that role play has gotten a bad reputation. We're here to restore its image and add this valuable learning technique back to your toolbox. This session will model an effective method for constructing such practice opportunities. You will leave the session with a clearly defined process for better role plays, as well as new techniques to ensure your learners are better equipped to transfer skills back to the workplace - making it more than a training technique but a true tool for talent development.


Learning Objectives:


In this session, participants will:

  • Discuss the value of role play as a learning and level 2 evaluation technique.
  • Identify some of the common challenges of role play and ways it is often misused.
  • Outline a process for more effective role playing in large and small groups.
  • Practice a fail-safe technique for debriefing in order to capture the learning.
  • Identify best practices to immediately incorporate into their own interactive sessions.
