For the first time in a long time, I attended a training course in April as a student,. I’m hoping to attend more training courses soonish, particularly some of Sun’s Java internals courses. I’ve just finished delivering a block of training in Sydney, so now seems like a good time to talk about something that’s been ticking over in my head since that course – golden rules of good training delivery.
Watching a course unfold as a student is a great learning exercise. Not just in terms of learning the course material, but also watching how trainers present the course, and help the class learn. Watching the course in April reinforced for me some things I believe about training – a number of them by negative example.
