'Hands-On' In-Person and Web Seminar Workshop Series 

What is a "Hands-On" Workshop? 

Barnett "Hands-On" Workshops are designed to provide intensive, hands-on training in a highly targeted clinical research topic area in a very interactive and engaging learning environment. Whether attending in-person or on the web, learners will gain an in-depth knowledge of the topic area and practice in applying the content on-the-job through this highly effective training approach.

By inter-mixing instructor-led presentations with facilitated group and individual activities, learners will be able to share experiences, discuss emerging trends, and problem-solve with other participants. Learners will also have the opportunity to reinforce concepts presented by applying newly-learned skills and knowledge to case studies or to a current work project, document or challenge.

Each workshop includes take-away tools and products for application and reference as learners return to their work environments.

Workshops are 6 hours in length and available in-person or on the web. To focus on the customized application of the exercises, web-based registration is for individual registrants only. Workshop size will be limited to 10 participants in order to facilitate the numerous group activities.

Adult Learning Principles in Action 

Adult learners have the following unique needs which Barnett's workshop-type learning experience can help address:

Experience – adults have considerable life experience which leads them to look for opportunities to speak, participate, and contribute during learning experiences.
Barnett's workshop design minimizes lecture time, clearing the schedule for more participatory learning activities. 

Self-Esteem – adults have a strong need to maintain their self-esteem.
Barnett's workshop activities allow adult learners the chance to increase their competency with skills and behaviors, enhancing self-esteem. 

Relevance adults want courses that focus on real-life tasks with a strong how-to focus.
The unique workshop learning experience provides learning objectives that are hands-on and practice-oriented. 

Benefit – adult learners need to know why the learning is important and see progress being made.
Barnett's workshops provide a structured approach to learning about a focused problem and practicing skills to solve the problem. 

Time Orientation – adults wish to focus on current issues and materials that are immediately important.
Barnett's workshops are designed around our most popular curriculum content and provide take-home tools and skills for immediate application on the job. 

Participation – adults are accustomed to being active and need opportunities to actively participate in the learning process.The workshop format is structured such that the majority of "classroom" time is spent on applying skills and knowledge and receiving feedback. 

Self-Direction – adults are accustomed to making their own decisions and being consulted on how best to accomplish their tasks.
Workshop participants are encouraged to bring real-life work examples or current projects to the workshop for direct application of workshop topics and skills.
