Trainer's tip: Help learners retain knowledge

LTC Nursing Assistant Trainer, May 7, 2009

One of your most important objectives in training is to ensure that your learners retain what they learn. The following are some tried-and-true methods that will promote learning retention:

Apply what is learned.

  • Provide real-life scenarios and ask the learners to comply with the facility’s privacy policies and procedures.
  • Ask learners to make up the scenarios or suggest situations they’ve experienced.

Let the learner be the trainer.

  • Divide learners into teams and play games.
  • Pair learners with quiz flashcards and have partners alternate quizzing each other.
