Training Tweak’d: Session Summaries – Strategies to increase learner engagement while checking their level of understanding
A word I love finding in training sessions is “demonstrate” or “show”. There is however a particular method of demonstrating a skill that is (in my opinion) superior to many others. It will support visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners, while also reducing the need to retrain the brain after a skill has been imitated and learnt incorrectly.While many trainers may know know this demonstration method, I am spreading the message to anyone who can benefit from this tweak.
Neuroscientists study the brain and its impact on behaviour and thinking functions, including how we learn. This is an area of constant development, and what we do know is much less than what we are still finding out!science is in flux and what we know is dwarfed by what we don’t. While this is a huge area of science, there are some helpful tips that we can apply as trainers to help make sure learning is meaningful and ‘sticks’ in learner’s brains.
