Instead of engaging only the ears of your congregation, multi-sensory communication enables you to engage their ears, eyes and hands; and it brings more of the whole person into the learning process. Rick Blackwood contends that conventional teaching engages only hearing. Multi-sensory teaching engages hearing, seeing and touch. Increase attention, comprehension and retention in your listeners. This hardcover was chosen as Preaching Magazine's Book of the Year.
This practical guide shows the power of multisensory communication as contrasted with monosensory speaking. Using multiple senses is shown by research to increase learner attention, comprehension, and retention. Any preacher or teacher can incorporate more sense appeal resulting in more compelling, clear, and memorable messages with greater impact.
