New Instructor-Led Training Format Enhances Learning
Students who've previously taken Esri instructor-led courses will notice something different when they take a course based on ArcGIS 10. A new, more immersive, experiential approach to learning will debut in over 20 courses beginning in August 2010 with the remainder of instructor-led courses to be upgraded in early 2011.
Previously, courses followed a format of lecture, demonstration, then exercises. Now, with a focus on interaction, instructors will also lead group exercises, guide discussions that facilitate peer-to-peer learning, and introduce scenarios in which students engage with each other in exploring ways to solve tangible workplace problems.
Esri instructors are going through rigorous training themselves to gain CompTIA CTT+ certification. Whether registered for a course in a traditional classroom or online classroom, students' increased interactivity in the learning process results in greater transfer of new skills and knowledge.
