We’ve been preparing to roll out some virtual trainings on our rmc2.org platform in the coming weeks. Because of that, it’s helpful to take a step back and think about what makes good training. Have you ever been part of a really dull training? It saps the soul.
How can we prevent this from happening? How can we think critically about training design, implementation, and evaluation?
Well, we don’t have to think too hard about it because our good colleague and Dawn Chorus Subject Matter Expert Dr. Victoria Scott already has.
Training for Outcomes
Almost ten years ago, Victoria and Dr. Abraham Wandersman developed a ten-step model for training design. I (Jon) was part of a team that implemented this model when training substance abuse staff on how to work with pregnant clients. The truth is that, yes, it took more work, but it also helped yield better outcomes.
During that time, we developed several brief documents to help people understand and engage with this type of deliberate training design.
And now we’re bringing back that work to help us think critically about developing cutting-edge, evidence-based experiences to build the capacity and readiness of community-based practitioners.
