In order to develop a training design which responds to the diverse learning styles of your teacher trainees and one which is appropriate for the material you will present in your training sessions, you need a variety of training techniques at your disposal.

While by no means an exhaustive list, the training techniques discussed below are the ones most commonly used by trainers. Because they can be used by classroom teachers as well, it is important that you correctly model these techniques in your training sessions. (The adaptation of these techniques to the classroom setting can be found in Chapter 2, Classroom Teaching Techniques.) As you develop your training design, remember that your success in using these techniques will depend on your ability to adapt them to meet the needs of your teacher trainees and the cultural context in which you train.
