It was difficult for me to pin point a couple of training class I’ve been through where there was a good one and bad one so I’ll just go ahead and talk about the differences in good and bad college course that I have taken thus far.
A lot of what goes into my liking a certain class is how relevant the information that I’m learning is to my career and if I can apply it to my life. I put a lot of emphasis on how organized the prof is, how reasonable the prof marks assignments, and how the prof communicates every week to the class. A large portion of my favorite classes also have a lot to do with the people I participate in group projects with as they ultimately make the course enjoyable. Thinking about all of the bad courses I have taken, it is usually the complete opposite of everything that I just described.
Relating this back to doing your job effectively and the on-the-job training you usually receive, I think there are a lot of similarities here. The organization and structure of the training are similar to the training design and the goals you want to get out of the training. Communication has to do with the presentation of the training in addition to how effective it is, as well as people aspect of a job relating to the socialization during a job orientation. At the end of the day everyone prefers their training to be a certain way and you can’t please everyone. Doing you best at making sure the training is organized, the materials reflect the goals of the training, and the participants are doing what they can to be involved in the socialization process
