Training objectives, review and control

Key Concepts of Training: Verbs for Learning Objectives

Initiating the learning objective with a strong verb can help guide the development of the training because it focuses attention on what the participants are supposed to be able to do after they complete the training. Choose the appropriate verb according to the type of learning you are trying to achieve or accomplish.

Training monitoring tool

Date: ………………………….. Subject of training: ………………………….. ………..
Target group: ………………………… Number of participants: ………….. ………..
Primary Trainer: ………………………………. Secondary Trainer: ………………… ………………….. Observer: …………………………… …….
Training start time: ……………………………………………… Training end time: …………. ……
Training learning objectives: What are the participants supposed to learn? ………………………………………….. ……………………………..
Instructions: There are two parts to this monitoring tool.
Part 1: Complete Part 1 first by taking notes throughout the exercise. On the left side of the sheet, write only what you see and hear from both the trainers and the participants. Note some of the following:

How did the trainer prepare the training?
What the participants said in response to the training instructions (Are there questions?)
What the participants and the trainers said during the training
How the team extracted information from the training
How to use the time
What are the questions asked
How to answer questions

On the right side of the paper, write down your impressions and questions about what you see and hear.

Did the trainer prepare the training appropriately?
Was there a vital reaction during the exercise?
Did the participants demonstrate their participation in the training?
How well is the trainer monitoring the training?
Was a clear learning objective reached during the training?
Was the debriefing done effectively?
Did the participants learn or improve an important skill?

Part 2: Complete the summary analysis based on the observations you made during the training. Use these notes and your own impressions when completing the summary.

Training Design Competencies Checklist
Have training designers:

1. Been in dialogue with adult students prior to the course?

2. Prepared the course or session by using a sequential planning model?

3. Negotiated the size of the group for optimal learning?

4. Set learning tasks for small groups of learners as one way of teaching the content?

5. Examined these learning tasks for sequence: easy to more difficult, simple to complex?

6. Designed a warm-up exercise related to the topic and appropriate for the group?

7. Honored in your design the fact that adult learners are in control of their own learning and lives?

8. Named content (skills, knowledge, and attitudes) clearly and precisely?

9. Designed achievement-based objectives that can be readily evaluated?

10. Selected a site that lends itself to small-group work?

11. Built in a time frame so that learning tasks can be accomplished during the allotted course or session time?

12. Planned for open questions to stimulate dialogue throughout the course or session?

13. Examined each learning task for its cognitive, psychomotor, and affective potential?

14. Designed a safe course or session?

15. Set up processes and structures (small groups, breaks, gallery walk review of charts) to assure inclusion?

16. Built in brainstorming or associative processes without judging or editing?

17. Designed for optimal engagement of everyone via small group work, learning tasks, affirming responses, and echoing?

18. Avoid monologues by designing adequate dialogue?

19. Designed a synthesis learning task to summarize all that has been learned?

20. Planned for quiet, reflective time for learners to think about what they are learning?

21. Designed adequate closing tasks for the end of each day or session?

22. Designed an opportunity for small groups to examine their own work together and their task maintenance?

23. Planned for a wide variety of learning techniques?

24. Provide follow-up contact names and numbers and

supportive materials (such as pocket guides, posters, triage trees)

25. Successfully utilized a translator if necessary?

A checklist of training design competencies
Have training designers done:


Have a dialogue with the adult students before the session? 1

Has the course been prepared using a sequence planning model? 2

Was group size negotiated to obtain optimal learning? 3

Are learning tasks assigned to small groups of learners as a way to teach content? 4

Are these learning tasks checked for sequence: easy to hardest, simple to complex? 5

Was the training design relevant to the topic and appropriate for the group? 6

In your design, honoring the fact that adult learners control their own education and lives? 7

Did you define the content (skills, knowledge and orientations) clearly and accurately? 8

Were achievement-based goals easily assessable? 9

Have you chosen a location suitable for small group work? 10
