Training - Training small groups - Self Evaluation

Continuing the series, "Training Small Groups" presented by Mike Hitchen Consulting

An important part of the participation process is self-evaluation. Self-evaluation can take place during your training session as you reflect on how well things are going. This will help you make any changes to your plan in response to the situation.

Self-evaluation can also take place after your training session when you ask yourself more in-depth questions about whether there are things that you need to change or problems you need to solve.

The following strategies can be used for evaluation your own training and help you improve:

* Video yourself and look for ways to improve.

* Ask for feedback from colleagues and other trainers.

* Compare your training methods and techniques with other trainers.

We are almost coming to the end of this series; tomorrow we take a look at Recording Training Details.

This will be just an overview as different countries have different legislation and requirements. For example, when I complete a training course it can take up to 30 hours of paper work to meet local requirements. Concluding the series will be a short article - Guidance To Further Training.
