Use the parking lot to record unrelated, but important topics.

Try some of these strategies in the classroom to ensure that you avoid barriers, stick to the schedule, and stay on time:

  • Inform participants of the agenda of the lesson and refer back to it throughout to remind them what still needs to be covered
  • Stick to the subject matter
  • Reconsider agenda items and adjust as necessary
  • Ensure participants return from breaks on time
  • Shorten or lengthen breaks as needed
  • Consider how many responses you elicit from participants. If you are short on time, allow fewer responses; if you have time, allow more responses.
  • Plan ahead and know where you can make up time if necessary
  • Be flexible and willing to adjust the content and/or activities
