Sharing Ideas Group


This year's focus is on helping the talent development community improve skills in the area of facilitation and instructional design. These chapter events are unique because participants learn concepts using self-discovery and hands-on activities. We encourage attendees to bring ideas to the group, to test new approaches, and to receive feedback from their peers. This is a great way to grow and improve. 

2016 sessions include: Icebreakers, Activities and Energizers, and Debriefing Strategies.

SIG events are free to ATD Buffalo Niagara members and are open to the public for a nominal non-member fee. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn from others in the field and to share your expertise. Come try out a new idea, we know you'll love it as much as we do!
