>>You note that CBT with a facilitator in a lab is the best
method of
training. Isn't this, in abstract, the same as a stand-up
training session
with opportunities for hands-on training? How is the latter
"the worst way
to learn?"

I have to agree with Bill, that organized (say using a
tutorial style workbook), hands on (you work with the
program environment), facilitator/instructor led training
class is what you are describing. One of the best ways to
come up to speed quickly in an application is to use it in a
cohesive, comprehensive fashion, with guidance along the
way. That is what good hands on training is supposed be
designed to do.

I will agree, however, that going to a lecture and watching
someone do something is often useless. That is a demo, by
whatever name.
