“We recently conducted Training of Trainers program in collaboration with NIRD. It was an incredibly well-designed and thoughtful process, with emphasis on the training methodology and Learning Approach. The pre-assessment and pre-work had us prepared to “dig in” to the training materials and allowed the participants to make the most out of the time we had together to build our skills as trainers. I look forward to the continued support from NIRD as we implement our training of educators.
Learning by doing is the basic principle underlying the acquisition of any skill. When teaching skills, the trainer, most often, achieves the best results by keeping the talk short and by working through a set sequence of discrete steps to demonstrate to the trainees the actual skill they are to acquire.”
