Content Development Guidelines for Continuing Education and Training

This guide has been developed to serve as a tool and resource as you create continuing education training materials for your staff trainings or to qualify for SNA continuing education credit. The principles contained within are based on Adult Learning Theory and are provided to you in an effort to enhance the learning experience of the participants.

Studies have shown that adult learners are more likely to retain educational content by being actively engaged in their learning through discussion, feedback and activities. This guide briefly touches on a few key points to help you add value to your educational training; however, it is not intended to serve as the only source of adult learning principles.

Incorporating as many of the elements, outlined in this document, as possible will improve the experience for participants and will increase the retention of information. Participant engagement should be a priority as you create your content.
