Choosing the Right Training Methods

Assume that you’ve been tasked with educating your team about new code of conduct procedures. What factors do you consider while deciding how to perform the training?

Do you get your team together for a group discussion? Do you plan to create an e-Learning course?

  • Do you provide a test or a quiz?
  • Should you create scenarios for role-playing in groups?
  • What additional kind of on-the-job training could you include?

It’s not always easy to choose the best training strategy.

The best training approach is determined by your objectives, trainees, and training content.

First, we’ll discuss a range of training methods, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each.

Then you’ll discover what things to think about when determining which strategy is appropriate for your team and situation.

You can use a variety of approaches to convey training information and assist your team in developing new skills or behaviours.

Four of the most frequent types of training methods are:

  • Lectures, webinars, and guest speakers are examples of presentations.
  • On-the-job training, case studies, and exercises or assessments are all examples of hands-on training.
  • Team building exercises might take the form of team challenges or business games.
  • Online courses, video tutorials, animations, and other computer applications are examples of e-learning and multimedia approaches.

To choose the ideal training approach, you must first examine your scenario and then choose the method (or combination of methods) that best fits your needs.

To make the optimal decision, identify your training goals, analyse your audience, assess your restrictions, and evaluate your existing resources.

Make training interesting and useful. Employees are more engaged when training is immediately relevant or related to their daily tasks.

Consider how you can use case studies or videos to make training content more engaging, or how you can make it more relevant by using real-life examples. Use your imagination!
