Awhile back I did a post on Training Prisoners and how we can help participants not feel “trapped” in class.
I’ve been reading a blog called: Better Learning Better Earning and it has some interesting articles. One in particular touches on Training by Hostage. They discuss Learning Liberty, Learning Tyranny, and You-niversity.
We really can’t force anyone to learn. We can encourage people to pursue interests and to feed those interest.
At times employees must learn certain information whether they are interested or not. That’s where good instructional design can help. Appropriate interactions, activities, scenarios, etc. can really help create interest.
I guess the best course would be when a participant gets so enthralled in the content that it turns into self-education. Check out their post.
