Robin,
Thanks for the tips! Here’s a tip I’d like to share: Put thought into where flipchart pages are posted, so that during the course of a training session, they can be left on the wall as a visual cue and for later reference. I facilitate a four-day leadership course, during which pages are used for several different activities. As I thread previous conversations into a new topic, I find that being able to point to yesterday’s chart helps people quickly relate to something that they might have otherwise forgotten about. Also, I resist the urge to clean up the walls at the end of the day by moving pages to one wall, the back of the room or wherever. It seems that preserving the original location of the pages helps trigger people’s recollection.
