Hi Sharon – What’s your philosophy/guidance on sending our training slides prior to the actual class for a virtual training course? Is this a good practice or not advised?
Greetings, Eugene: Here is my belated reply: Not advised! IMHO, you remove all curiosity about what is going to be taught. Furthermore, you remove “novelty, contrast, meaning, emotion” from your training. These are the four major elements of getting and keeping the focus of each participant on the content being taught. If you pass out the slides prior to the training, learners will assume they can just stay home and read the slides at their leisure.
By all means, send the slide set to your learners after the training is over! The slides will act as a way to review the content and move it into long-term memory then.
I’ve emailed a free infographic to you that I think you’ll find useful in your training. Cheers! 🙂 Sharon
