TRAINING UPDATE


The Rap On T-Cubed


We talked to Mark Griffin, team leader/ volunteer course, about the new BSA train-the-trainer continuum called T3 or T-Cubed. Here’s the scoop: Part 1—T3 the Fundamentals of


Training. This course “deals with the fundamentals of training—why we train leaders, how people learn,” Griffin says. He says this part is aimed at people new to training, or someone whose skills have eroded over time and need a refresher. “It’s also good for someone who comes from outside Scouting.”

Part 2—The Trainer’s EDGE. This


course enhances the platform skills the trainer learned in Part 1, teaching the EDGE model and other methods. This is an update of the current course aimed at trainers who want to enhance their skills or staff one of the advanced courses. Part 3—For Master Trainers. This is still


under development; watch Scouting maga- zine for updates. Griffin says a “training community”


of instructional designers and train- ing designers drawn from the military and private industry developed the new train-the-trainer sequence. “We decided that instead of just having great Scouters involved, we also needed people who know how someone learns,” Griffin says. The courses emphasize experiential


learning and other insights, such as learn- ing when the need is greatest. “When did you learn to change a tire on your car?” Griffin asks. “It was when you needed to change one.” Likewise, leaders learn best at the point when they need the informa- tion, whether it’s on the eve of a first den meeting or just before a winter campout.


Scouts and their families will enjoy hiking, biking and inline skating on the rail trail; eight miles of paved surface hugging the majestic Monongahela River.
