This free training game is a method of ensuring participants are engaged in the training that you have provided and ensures they are prompted to apply the learning back in the workplace.
A set of instructions for the training game, ‘Email Me’ can be downloaded for free from the link at the bottom of the page.
Explain to participants that you will be emailing them all after the training event. The email can come at a time of your choosing, but we suggest about 1 or 2 weeks later. Advise them that you will expect them to provide a quick response to this email as it is part of the training process.
The reason for the email is to either…
1. Check their retention of knowledge by asking a couple of questions relating to the training course.
2. Check their application of the training by asking a couple of questions about how they have used the training.
Set a reminder in your calendar to email the participants and once you have done so, ensure they respond. If they do not, chase them to find out why and prompt them again.
This activity is useful to assist and support development of participants. It is also useful in organisations where managers are not as good at provide pre and post training briefings as the should be.
This training game is helpful to embed learning and generate recall and actions post training.
