Facilitating better knowledge retention

One of the most important goals for me as a educator and facilitator is to figure out how much new information people will take away with them. I am always on the lookout for ways to increase the efficiency learning as well as the retention.

When designing a class or a facilitation session I spend some time identifying the learning outcomes I would like to achieve for the participants. I then spend some time organising the content together with the exercises for practice or repetition.
