Welcome to The Fundamentals of Training.  This is the first part of the three-part train-the-trainer continuum (T3) in Scouting and is intended for both youth and adult trainers.  This session is designed to introduce new Scouting trainers to teaching techniques and skills.

Most of the BSA’s instructor-led training is designed around a variation of what educators are calling the “team-based learning model.”  Using small groups, team-based learning promotes learning and team development through frequent and immediate feedback by a facilitator/instructor.  It helps members learn from each other during and after the course.  The team based learning approach is similar to the patrol method Scouting has used for more than a century all over the world.  The patrol method has proven effective in operating a den, patrol, squad, and crew, as well as in learning.  We will use this method throughout the course.

This first part of the T3 continuum, The Fundamentals of Training, is designed to help Scouter, regardless of their experience, present effective training.  The course will also help those who might have trained for other organizations learn the BSA’s training techniques.  And, it will help freshen up the skills of current BSA trainers.
