29% reported hating role play
26% said they didn't like them
29% said they were ok
16% reported that they enjoyed them
Role plays don't suit everyone as is evident from this data (I cannot qualify or source it) and I suspect most trainers would suggest that it's mainly down to difference in learning styles.
Other trainers may suspect that role plays are often used because they are a preferred training method sooner than a preferred learning method.
Does anyone have any opinions; Is it trainer's preferred training method or delegate's preferred learning method???
