Appropriate Formats

The provider chooses educational formats for activities/interventions that are appropriate for the setting, objectives, and desired results of the activity. (formerly Criterion 5)


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.
