    If anyone out there could help it would be appreciated. I work as a kindergarten teacher in a preschool environment and was asked by my director to be one of the trainers for our in-service training day this year. I am happy and was proud to be considered "good" enough to be a trainer for the staff. I am doing the training on "Creative Expression" and will have to do training for staff for infants-preschool. My problem is I have NEVER done a training before. Been to plenty of them and am usually bored to death! SO if anyone has any suggestions on a format, ideas, etc... I would love to hear them. Thank you!

    I don't hve any advice for you on that topic, but I'd say think about what you like and don'tl ike in the trainings you've been to...

    I like...
    *discussions
    *interactive presentations
    *presentations where i get ideas of things i can actually do
    *make-and-take
    *things that are relevant

    I don't like
    *irrelevant subject matter
    *lecture-style presentations

    Perhaps thinking about what you actually like in a training will be helpful in actually developing yours... good luck!!!

    Thanks, I definitely will run in a way that I would find interesting, have to keep in mind that the more involved, the more fun! So We'll see!

    I like to have concrete things that I can use in the classroom. Down to earth and simple.

    I definitely getting that sense, people want things that they tangibly see and do with their own kids, so that's the angle I will take. Thanks

    I like to get hand-outs with the ideas in writing. Then I don't have to scribble away at the training, trying to get all of the ideas on paper so that I don't forget them later.

    I like presenters who are enthusiastic. I can't stand those that are monotone and as was mentioned the more interactive the better.
