Before the Workshop:
During the Workshop:
Ensure that any comments/recommendations are consistent with the standards set out in the training materials.
The level of physical comfort of training participants will have a direct impact on the outcome of the learning exercise. Keep these basic facts in mind:
Use the chalkboard or paper to write down pertinent information, to track ideas or opinions, answers to questions or, to draw schemes and note definitions. Recording information on paper helps reinforce the key points and allows for summarizing the material covered. It is important to keep most recorded information posted around the room for the participants and the facilitator to refer to throughout the training session.
When a facilitator has to talk and write at the same time, the group may concentrate more on what he or she writes than what he or she says. In addition, the facilitator's voice becomes muffled when he or she speaks toward the board, not to the group. Hence, it is desirable to work in pairs, so that when one facilitator speaks, the other partner can write. If a facilitator is working alone, he or she must face the audience when addressing them, and not the sheet of paper placed on the wall. Remember, written information should only reinforce what is being said, not vice versa.
