You will see how to use the space in your classroom and position the equipment you use, the furniture layout, and yourself in the room. After the training, you will know what media to select depending on the message you want to bring forward. The topic on media use will come with a comparison between weak and strong points of each.

The APICS TTT is an interactive two-day training in teaching skills. TTT is mandatory training for upcoming or newly started APICS instructors.
During the training, you will learn how to design your lessons and how to involve the learners. You will learn how to address the varying learning styles of the students you are teaching and to make that part of the lesson plans.
You will also learn how to use the physical environment for optimal interaction and a minimum of distraction. You will learn methods to communicate with your students effectively. A crucial element in the bidirectional communication between participants and the instructor is the attention for non-verbal communication.
During the two days, you get the opportunity to design and present two mini-lessons. You will get feedback from your fellow participants as well as from the instructors. We make recordings of your presentations, which we will hand out to you at the end of the second day.
