While still covering a wide range of training skills, the workshop paid additional attention to the best practices when creating and using visuals, as well as how to prepare a course syllabus, writing learning objectives, and engaging the audience-making dry content more interesting. The training only took place recently (this past April) and long-term results are still indistinguishable, but trainers immediately took to the TTT workshop’s advice and are implementing the techniques into training today.
