Quiet Time

Posted by on March 21st, 2012 Posted in: Adult Learning Principles

Another suggestion from the Bob Pike webinar I attended recently:  give your students some “quiet time” to read or reflect.  As instructors, we often feel like we have to fill every minute with talking or interactive activities, especially during online classes.

During the webinar, the leader gave participants a few minutes to quietly read a particular section of the workbook.  When he asked if the participants appreciated that time, most said yes.  He suggested that we consider adding “quiet time” to our own training sessions.
