In my (longer than I’d like to admit) experience as a technical educator, I’ve always enjoyed observing the different ways people learn. Some learners like to listen, while others prefer to read. Many like to collaborate, while others favor learning on their own. Some like a formal classroom, while others want self-paced learning. However, I have noticed that no matter a particular person’s learning preferences, nothing compares to a hands-on activity with technical training when it comes to getting information to stick.
