Fried Training Talk- Do As THEY Say

What “Do As I Say Not As I Do” elements do you see from learning professionals?

I was recently told that because of my training I am a tough audience. I try to focus on positives when I am learning, but sometimes elements jump out at me like:

    • I spent an hour being LECTURED to that we need to make training more interactive
    • I listened to a 2 hour podcast on the effectiveness of micro learning (it felt longer than 2 hours)
    • I WATCHED an ELearning on the effectiveness of games and gamification which never allowed the user to play
    • I went to a Best Ways to use PowerPoint presentation that included several slides with more than 3 bullet points on them
    • I have READ several articles on the importance of humor in learning that did not even attempt to be funny

I know I can’t be alone in seeing these things?
What other Training Oxymorons (yes, I know I am stretching the definition a little there) have you encountered recently?
