This is a handy end-of-the-course exercise that helps reinforce learning by reminding the delegates of what they have learned during the course. A summary is produced during this exercise which can also be used as a reference for delegates.
Identify what you have learned today in this training course as quickly as you can.
What You Need
- Distribute one paper to each delegate.
- Explain that they have 10 minutes to write as much as possible about what they have learned during this course.
- Ask delegates to start on your mark.
- Start the timer.
- After 10 minutes say stop and ask everyone to put their pens down.
- Bring everyone back together and ask them to read through their statements one by one.
- As they go through these statements, write a short summary of each unique statement on a flipchart. Place a counting mark next to each if a statement is mentioned several times. This helps to show which statement or lesson has been remembered most or is considered important.
- You can optionally provide a print copy of the flipchart to all delegates so they can take it with them as a reference. The easiest way to do this is to take a photo of the flipchart with your mobile phone and then print a copy for each delegate.
