This wonderful little reminder came to me via a newsletter today from Guila Muir.
- Remember that the learning objectives (outcomes) are what you’re driving for.
- Strive for a 70/30 ratio: 70% learner “doing,” 30% trainer “doing.”
- Avoid fluff. Use only activities that help to achieve the learning outcomes.
So simple, yet it sums up what we need to strive for. All of the training I have been through over the past year to improve my own training skills has taught, and more importantly, followed the same principles.
I think I might print this out, frame, and hang in my office.
