01. Understand The Audience
We approach participants with fresh eyes and a curious mindset. Prior to the training, we may conduct informational interviews and observations or engage in a mapping exercise. Our goal is to gather, analyze and interpret information about participants. The better we know them, the more effectively we can create appealing and effectual instruction.
02. Examine The Research
As we understand more about participants’ strengths and needs, we extract from the literature relevant content. During our literature review, we are guided by an awareness that concepts and interventions with a broad evidence base may be more likely to produce positive effects. That said, we recognize the existence of publication bias and are willing to consider ideas not yet classified as evidence-based practice.
03. Design The Training
With increased understanding of participants’ needs and the literature associated with those needs, it’s time to design the training. We favor a dynamic, active-learner approach that integrates multimedia, games, simulations, celebrations and/or independent, self-paced assignments.
04. Execute the Training
It’s training day! Depending on participant feedback, which is collected throughout the training, we may revise and adjust our content or instructional methods.
After the training, we offer ongoing consultation, among other services.
