id handTo be successful in life you must do the basic things right, and do it consistently. Success in training is not different: you must do the basic things right, and do it consistently.

So, what are the basics in training? Learner Centered, and Performance Based.

Lets explore these basics through six words that sum up findings from research on learning: why, what, structure, response, feedback, and reward. Let's examine each of them.

Why
As reasonable as it may seem, if the learner knows "why" he or she is supposed to learn something and the reason makes sense to—is valued by—the learner, the probability of learning increases.

learningThe key to good facilitation in general is practice, practice, and more practice.

When you turn your attention to facilitating specific kinds of learning activities, this advice is true as well, but, in addition, you must also plan, plan, and plan.

Nothing affects the potential success or failure of a learning activity more than how well you plan the activity by thinking through each aspect of the activity ahead of time so that the facilitation will go smoothly.

Studies have shown that the use of games in training serves two purposes:

    1. Resetting participant concentration and energy levels. The human mind can only absorb so much information at one time. Successful training is commonly segmented into blocks of approximately 20 minutes followed by group problem solving, open discussion, and games. Using games in this way increases knowledge retention and keeps attention spans high.
    2. Reinforcing the practical application of new skills. The effectual execution of games plays a large role in knowledge retention. When used during training, games provide an enjoyable way of reinforcing knowledge and skill use. And when used after training as part of on-the-job reinforcement, games provide a quick and fun refresher of what was learned during training.
