When Designing Training, it's important to identify how complete delegates' knowledge needs to be. Do they need an awareness? A basic understanding? Be able to practically apply or be an expert?
The level of knowledge required will (of course) affect our design, but in particular it will help shape our objectives, outcomes AND inform the type of activity/training methods we need to employ when putting an event together.
Bloom's Taxonomy is one useful model that we can use to position the training correctly.
Another similar model is Webb's Depth of Knowledge Model (no relation!). Not only can it help us to design training at the right level, it can also help us to evaluate it - there are some similarities to Kirkpatrick and LTEM here too I think.
Here are two resources that you might find useful.
This PDF Guide explains what each Level is about and gives some ideas about how to design learning activities for each. It IS aimed at 'educators' but there are still some useful ideas - all of which fit into the MASTER Model that I love so much!
And this Summary Diagram can be used as a handy guide to help you to select learning methods that are relevant for each level.
