Tip #773: Set the learner up for success.
“I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.” Albert Einstein
As mentioned in Tip #772, there are only two immutable rules for a trainer. The first is to treat the learner with respect. The second is to set the learner up for success.
A trainer can do this by: building on what the learner already knows; disconnecting any negative transfer; using training methods that meet the needs of different learning preferences; providing sufficient examples and practice so that the learners can experience and demonstrate their mastery of the new skill; and offering specific and constructive feedback.
The trainer can also set the learner up for success by creating and following a logical lesson plan that checks for learner comprehension prior to moving to guided, monitored practice, before providing an opportunity for independent practice.
If trainers do this, their learners will leave their sessions confident in their competence to use what they have learned.
May your learning be sweet.
