Thiagi continues to explore techniques for making training design faster, cheaper, and better. In this session, he demonstrates how to locate existing content resources (both archived and live) and wrap them inside effective and engaging learning activities. This approach saves the time and resources that are unnecessarily wasted in rediscovering the training content. By using validated templates for the activities, this technique also speeds up the design process.

  • Content and activities: The two key components of effective training
  • Best training templates to use with seven types of archived content (such as videos and text)
  • Best training templates to use with six types of live sources of training content (such as subject-matter experts and informants)
  • Best training templates to use with eight formats of training content (such as a job aids and posters)
