In their book Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath talk about the concept of ‘making the abstract, concrete’. When I read that it the concept struck me as the mission statement for trainers. Law enforcement training is full of abstract concepts such as the law, use of force, report writing, strategic communication, threat recognition, mental preparation and officer safety. Your job is to find a way to move them from the abstract to the concrete.
How do you accomplish that?
- Meaningful, relevant, well told stories.
- Case studies.
- Hands on, self-discovery activities.
- Scenario based training.
- Proper use of video.
- Small group work.
- Student research and teach back activities.
- Engaging presentations with visuals, quotes and interaction.
Your challenge- seek to be ‘the educator’.
