Event description

You are invited to a repeat session of Speed Reading with Rhodes Training

Who is it for?

This workshop is for anyone who would like to be able to read their general work-related documents in a fraction of the time that it currently takes.

What is it about?

Speed Reading is about understanding how our eyes work and then using a couple of simple techniques to make them move faster and cover the material more quickly. During the workshop you will try these techniques and, through a series of timed exercises, find out which ones work best for you.

The ideas we cover are suitable for reviewing general work-related material to help you to assess whether the document needs more in-depth reading. 

 


 




Learning outcomes

 What will I get out of it?

You will:
· Learn and practise the key techniques that speed readers use to raise their speed from c240 words to 1000 words a minute – most participants find that they can double or triple their speed and still keep the same level of comprehension.
· Try techniques that will challenge the way you think about reading.

You may wish to combine this workshop with 'Effective Reading' which looks at increasing the value of reading by:

· Being selective and
· Improving memory and recall.
Course Aims
To help people learn the techniques to double their reading speed (often more) whilst retaining comprehension.
Course Overview
· Assessing current reading speed
· Understanding how we read
· Using a range of techniques and exercises to increase reading speed
Method
Very interactive with lots of opportunities to practise. Participants are asked to bring with them a couple of examples of their general work-related reading.
