ADDIE training is discussed in the lecture and will be utilized throughout the course to help you organize your thoughts about training. Let’s talk about ADDIE and also about training you may have taken part in at your current work, previous work, or even at school. To start, here are three questions (pick either 1 and 3, or 2 and 3, and then respond to a classmate’s post as well):
- Think about and describe briefly one of the best training sessions you have been involved with in the past or currently. What made it good? Did you find it improved your ability to do your job?
- Think about and describe briefly one of the worst training sessions you have been involved with in the past or currently. What made it so bad? Did you find it did nothing to assist you with your job? Or if it did assist you, why didn’t you to think it was good training?
- How did the trainer’s personality impact your answer to No. 1 or 2 above?
