  • 2. Training Content is NOT simply about the slides

  • 4. Even with so many of them, how do you know if your training content is effective?
  • 5. As good content developers, we start with: The Objective
    At the end of the training, can the audience do this:
    RECALL
    UNDERSTAND
    APPLY
  • 6. This is captured by Bloom’s Taxonomy…
  • 7. Sadly, most trainers who deliver still struggle with getting audiences to just remember what was taught
  • 8. What are the common mistakes in training content that leads to this?
  • 9. RECALL: Audience remember only what is repeated. Mistake 1 : Not revisiting important aspects
  • 10. Does your content design allow for an important point to be revised multiple times with different and interesting modes?
    Discussion
    Summary
    Exercise
    Test
  • 11. A summary at the end of every module and before/after breaks keeps the thought flowing in the right direction.
  • 12. RECALL: Audience remember stories Mistake 2 : Information is presented as a dump without connecting link
  • 13. Does your content have a flow and structure to it so that when audience don’t need to remember different bits and pieces but 1 story?
  • 14. Break down your content into modules that can be easily revised and summarized. This modular approach also helps trainers easily repurpose content fairly quickly.
  • 15. RECALL: Audience remember what they ‘do’Mistake 3 : Spending more time on information download rather than on activities
  • 16. Is every major learning point supported with an activity to apply the learning? Are these activities of different types so that boredom doesn’t set in?
  • 17. When NOT to use activities? Avoid adding activities for points that audience already know. E.g. managing time is important.Don’t use activities for not so important points – just because you find the activity interesting.
  • 18. 3 common mistakes in RECALL
    Mistake 1 : Not revisiting important aspects
    Mistake 2 : Information is presented as a dump without connecting link

    RECALL
    UNDERSTAND
    APPLY
  • 20. UNDERSTAND: Audience ignore the complexMistake 1 : Not spending time to simplify content
  • 21. Does your content simply download content as it appears in the product flyer or a previous training program?
  • 22. Content can be simplified with use of diagramsinstead of bullet points
  • 23. Content can be simplified with use of analogy instead of technical explanations
  • 24. Content can be simplified with use of visuals instead of words
  • 25. No matter how complex the concept, if it is explained by use of visuals and diagrams it is possible for your audience to understand and recall exactly what was said.
  • 26. UNDERSTAND: Audience get exhausted by doing just one thingMistake 2 : Not varying the methodology periodically
  • 27. Does your content have hours of presentation followed by a role play at the end? This exhausts the audience.
  • 28.
  • 29. UNDERSTAND: There are different learner typesMistake 3 : Using methodologies for only 1 type of learner
  • 30. A simple rule of thumb used to differentiate learner types….

  • 40. Next we look at common mistakes in….
    RECALL
    UNDERSTAND
    APPLY
  • 41. APPLY: Audience prefer solutions to their problems, not theoryMistake 1: Starting with training content without showing relevance to their work
  • 42. Does your training start and end with 1) how the content applies to workplace 2) the benefit it brings and 3) the problem it solves
    Your audience will pay more attention when you SELL the training
  • 43. APPLY: Audience need to practice what they learn in a safe environmentMistake 2: Not providing enough time for practice
  • 44. One comprehensive exercise is not enough. It is better to check application in stages rather than as a massive exercise of applying everything learnt at the end.
