Our professional role players are chosen to be part of the InterACT team for a number of reasons:
- business experience to suit the credibility of the client base;
- their understanding of the learning environment;
- being trained in giving feedback to the learner; personality and match to ours and our clients’ values;
- their ability to convincingly ‘play’ a role; their flexibility in the training environment.
The role-players, during a role-play will have multiple levels of awareness:
- The content of the role-play;
- The experience of the participant ~ their aim is to keep each participant in the stretch zone;
- The learning context for the individual;
- The learning context for the course;
- The business context for the role-play and the course;
- Their own emotional responses;
- Noting and remembering key events for feedback purposes.
