The "worst way to learn anything?" I don't agree with the poster who
said stand-up training is always better, but if one extreme is
ridiculous, so is the other. And because of your last statement, I
assume you are not speaking strictly about software training.

Have you ever had a urinary catheter inserted, Scott? Have you ever had
your blood drawn? Would you want a nurse who listened to an instructor,
or a self-taught nurse who got feedback every once in a while?

There is no one best way to teach everything.

Who just found out that if you pay your STC dues before the deadline,
you get to vote! How long has that been going on? ;-)
