Take a Walk in Their Shoes
Posted 30 October 2013 4:00 AM by Elaine La Chappelle
In my last blog post I talked about the value of hanging out with other trainers. But there’s something even more valuable for trainers to do, to ensure their training design and facilitation are top-notch; that is to take on the role of a participant. When we become a learner, we can’t help but assess the learning experience. When you sit in the participant’s seat and learn a new skill, you’re bound to come up with ways you can improve, as you compare your facilitation approach to that of the trainer. As you watch this blog post, think about how to ensure that you regularly take a walk in the participants’ shoes.
