Campos provides guidance on how trainers can help advance these relationships by asking the following questions relative to the instruction.
- Am I controlling the classroom discussion only to the degree necessary?
- Am I encouraging positive experimentation and generating a culture of optimism?
- Is my content packaged so it can be adopted as a performance support tool in the future?
- Is there diversity in my content selection?
- Am I encouraging interaction among my learners whenever possible?
- Have I provided students with necessary and sufficient guidance on how to participate in the learner-to-learner relationship?
- Am I providing sufficient prompts to help the learner build meaning and derive value from the instruction?
- If I were a learner in this classroom, would I find the learning to be personal and meaningful?
