Training Approach

We plan to use the Tell Me, Show Me, Let Me approach within the different training delivery and support formats.

  • Tell Me is considered to be the core of basic instruction. It is the delivery of facts, rules, processes, and basic knowledge.
  • Show Me is where the learner sees the tool in action. This includes everything from live demos to simple animations that demonstrate how to use the tool and execute different processes.
  • Let Me is where the learner is hands-on with the tool. This often means using branched scenarios to let learners see different results as a product of their actions. This allows learners to troubleshoot and learn from their mistakes before they are placed in a live situation.

End users will be provided with a Learning Journey that outlines the suggested training to take in order to become knowledgeable of the software tool. We will be using several different formats to deliver the training to the end-user.
