Teaching in short bursts

Whether it’s in a formal classroom, an organizations training facility or other location much of our training is done in 45 minute sessions or longer.

The question we must ask is why?

Why that long? Is it really in our best interests to go that long in our sessions? Would it make sense to teach in short bursts (3-10 minutes) by breaking things down to shorter, simpler sessions? Would we learn better if we had five 10 minute sessions instead?

Next time you are in a one hour training session take a look around at the 30 minute mark and see how many people are paying attention vs how many are are drifting away.

Short simple bursts of teaching can make a world of difference. Give it a try

Have a great day!
