About the Rule

Activity formats (e.g., didactic, small group, interactive, hands-on skill labs) should be chosen based on what the provider hopes to change as a result of the education. Adult education literature provides guidance about which learning formats are more effective than others depending on the outcome that is desired, the setting, and the needs of the learners.
