Short and Sweet
There's an important learning principle that many people seem to forget. It can be summarized in just three words, "“Keep it short.”
Over the past decade, we have all been conditioned to learn in short, bite-size chunks thanks to the billions of learning fragments available to us at the touch of a screen and with the click of a mouse. This is the new learning reality — the way most people want to learn, like to learn, and choose to learn.
So when you're designing a training session or preparing to facilitate one, just remember to give people the relevant information and move on. They'll love you for it.
Need we say more?
We don't think so.
