Briefly describe the training and explain the method that was used. If you knew what the learning outcomes were for the training provide those.

Traditional Training Methods (graded)
Traditional learning methods include lectures hands-on on-the-job training self-directed learning apprenticeship case studies business games role plays behavior modeling group building cross and team training and so forth.

Briefly describe the training and explain the method that was used. If you knew what the learning outcomes were for the training provide those. If not come up with one or two that you felt were probably the learning outcomes and provide them. Explain whether the training did or didn’t meet the learning outcomes. In other words did you learn what it seemed like you were supposed to learn from the training? Did you feel this method of training worked for the training you were involved in? Your professor will follow up with more questions.
Please feel free to ask your classmates questions about their training as well. (If you have never had training at work talk about some other kind of training you have had—sports related the arts etc.). Be sure not to use a technology-based training in this thread because that is what we will discuss in the other thread. Only discuss traditional training such as is covered in Chapter 7.
