Next Monday marks the start of the Online Equine Clicker Conference!
Have you signed up yet?
This is going to be a very fun event that will feature all of the presentations and demostrations from this year’s Equine Clicker Conference, plus additional material that is being produced exclusively for the online portion of the conference, including presentations, webinars, and question and answer sessions with the speakers. There’s also going to be a forum where participants can talk all about clicker training.
Go here to sign up.
So you’re not a horse trainer?
There’s still plenty in this online conference that I think you’ll find interesting.
This year’s three-week online conference offers a handful of presentations geared toward training all species. Dog trainer Kay Laurence is giving two presentations, one titled ” Precision Teaching, Precision Understanding, Precision Application” and another titled “Clicker Revolution.” I can’t wait to see both of these. Dr. Susan Friedman is also giving a live webinar that will discuss some of the science behind clicker training.
And some big news…
I’m super excited to announce that I will be doing a 30 minute presentation as part of the online conference. My presentation will be during the second week of the online conference, which will be all about the science behind clicker training. I’ll be talking all about reinforcers — what they are, the differences between primary and secondary reinforcers, and some of the factors that can change the effectiveness of reinforcers.
To see a list of all of the speakers (including me!), you can visit this page of the site.
I really hope you’ll join us for the conference next week! And, if you have horse training friends or clicker training friends who would be interested in participating, please let them know about this very exciting event.
