  10. Sharing effective learning methods Do you have a learning method that works for you and that you'd be happy to share with others? Tell us! Where are your trainees? How many are you training? What is your schedule of delivery likely to be? What is the training content? What are your main limitations? What type of learning delivery would you consider using? What are your goals for this training? !  Local !  National "  International !  Face-to-face !  Distance "  Blended !  One-off !  Several times in short succession "  Annually/ biannually !  Extended over several weeks/ months 5methods meet your criteria •  We’re building a resource that will help course developers to find and use learning methods well suited to the type of training that they do •  You’ll be able to select appropriate methods for your type of course •  For each method we’ll provide practical information on how to implement it •  Most importantly, you’ll be able to find real examples of how the method is used, and you’ll be able to get in touch with people using the method to learn more and perhaps arrange to see it in action.
