Here are a few guidelines for your training success with The Family History Guide:
Use The Family History Guide website for your training, instead of building your own presentations. Our approach to training is a bit different from the norm, but the benefits are clear: your material stays up to date on the web, and you can spend time refining and polishing your training instead of building and rebuilding it.
Use the Tracker (Online or Word) to tracker learner progress. You can also use the Tracker as a pre-assessment tool to see what skills and knowledge your learners are bringing to a training session.
Use the Course Evaluation form to gather learner feedback after training.
Make sure learners know what sections of The Family History Guide they should continue with after a training session. They can also use the Tracker to monitor ongoing progress.
