We have talked about the concept of your 4MAT training design before in the blog. Recently in a train the trainer workshop, I was having a chat with a new-to-4MAT trainer who had some questions about how to get started in defining your concept. Here’s a quick video I created on defining your concept:
Remember, effective training concepts are:
- Core, essential ideas.
- Form bridges that link the learner’s experiences to the content.
- Have immediate relevance for the learners.
- Establish relationships between topics.
- Act as a thread that weaves all the content together
The 4MAT online train the trainer course is an easy way to learn how to apply our 8 step design model. We invest a great deal of time on this critical part of the design process. As one of our recent training participants shared, “When you nail the concept, you immediately create a “wow” factor.”
