A person who makes it easier for learners to learn by attempting to discover what a learner is interested in knowing, and then determines the best way to make that information available to the learner by providing the knowledge, systems, or materials which enable the learner to perform a task more effectively. This is done by listening, asking questions, providing ideas, suggesting alternatives, and identifying possible resources. Read about difference between a Trainer, Instructor, Coach, and Facilitator.
The technique of gradually removing the teaching information in a programmed sequence to the point that the learner is required to perform the desired behavior without assistance.
Providing learners with information about the nature of an action and its result in relation to some criterion of acceptability. It provides the flow of information back to the learner so that actual performance can be compared with planned performance. Feedback can be positive, negative, or neutral. Feedback is almost always considered external, while reinforcement can be external or intrinsic (i.e., generated by the individual).
1) The focus of discussion between trainer and learner, as a result of which both parties review their objectives or approach. 2) A method of judging the worth of a program at the end of the program activities (summation). The focus is on the outcome.
