Creating participant material


Tony Bray & Tessa Simpson Last Published  24 March 2014

Participant materials may include workbooks, hand-outs, questionnaires and exercises. They can be on paper or delivered electronically but they should always be visually appealing, interesting and logically set out. They should aid peoples understanding of the subject and act as a useful reference both during and after the training. They should also include space for personal notes and ideas.
