Giving Ckear instructions


6 technical experts in the business about to deliver courses on different areas on statistics... they need to understnad how giving a presentatio is different from training. One of the key areas I want to look at in giving clear instrcutions to get activities started off correctly.
Has anyone got any sort of tips or rules that they use?

    Hi Jo

    I just wrote an aritcle last month on this very subject for my newsletter.

    E-mail me on [email protected] and I’ll more than happily send it on to you

    Best wishes

    Hi Jo

    I use what, where, when etc

    Why they are doing the activity
    What specifically do they have to do and what is the required output
    How should they do it
    Who should do what
    When should it be completed by
    Where should they do it

    Depending on what you are doing, some of these will be irrelevant, but it works as a good checklist for me.

    If necessary you can also produce an instruction sheet for each activity so groups can refer back to it during their activity

    I used to work for a driving school and I have some classics around what instructors said and what the learner driver actually did. Email me if you’d like those as well. They highlight how careful you have to be when giving instructions
