For all the years I’ve designed training programs, I’ve often caught myself trying to teach too much in a session. Turns out, that’s quite common.
We trainers often feel that if we add more content, people will learn more. In fact, it’s more likely that they will learn less. That’s because when we jam too much content into a session we don’t give people the time to get to the point where they actually learn it. They hear it, start to think about it and then we move onto the next topic. As you can see, that’s a problem.
In this Debrief trainer blog I talk about this tendency and make some suggestions for how to avoid it. If you have any suggestions please add them in the comment section below.
