Tip #105: Training Methods
The seventh step in the comprehensive nine step LESSON PLANning Process is:
STEP 7. PROPOSE THE TRAINING METHODS.
- Identify the training methods for each module, including the time necessary for each activity. (Ensure that the methods are compatible with the level of learning for the learning objective.)
- Build in a variety of instructional methods. (Ensure multi-modality to maximize learning and meet the needs of all learning styles.)
- Develop a plan to hold the participants accountable for learning. (A participant learning contract is one approach.)
- Ensure that participants have an opportunity to apply new skills that they have learned. (If they don’t apply the new skills during the training session, it is unlikely that they will apply them after the session. We want to build their confidence in their competence.)
