Conference Highlight: Training Nuggets and YouTube Channels


Training 2012 Conference & Expo speaker Michele Deck offers one of the ways she helps her training have long-term impact.

In training we are challenged by many things.  One of those challenges are reinforcing content and skills when your staff may not all be at one location for training or may recieve training only by intra or internet.  One tool I like to use is YouTube.  You can create your own YouTube channel and place reinforcing nuggets their for learners to review at their convenience.  The videos I use are short and easy to make (such as the Sterile Technique Macarena).  Give it a try!”
