T&D: Make Your Instructional Demonstrations More Interactive & Valuable

Watch This – Or – Hold My Beer?

Most Demonstrations in Instruction (T&D/Learning) are passive, “watch this” types of content/ approaches. Which can be valuable.

However I prefer most of my DEMOs to show/model the APPOs that the T&D Participant will be put through – next – as an “Advanced Organizer” if you will.


You would do the demo live or recorded based on the APPO (Application Exercise) that follows – but was built first (in my approach to ISD Design). And the Lesson Participants (Learners) would review it and score the process and/or the output – again, just as it will be done for them once they are in the “hot dseat” of hands-on Practice with Feedback.

Of course the preceding INFO should explain the Criteria as well as the Steps, and the What & Why about the Performance being focused on.

Unless the Lesson is a set up for another, downstream Lesson where the DEMO and APPO will tie it all together. That happens too for complex Performance.
