People learn instinctively by watching others perform tasks, then attempting to imitate what they have seen. Modeling and demonstrations may be integrated in formal training, shared with trainees through videos or audiotapes (such as on-line or in person), or communicated through staff meetings. As trainees attempt to use these skills, they receive feedback that enables them to increase their competence and fidelity to the intended approach. Consider different examples
of successful modeling strategies in choosing the best approach for your needs.
