Janice is conducting a training session. During it, he would like it if everyone could observe each other, as well as the trainer. Which seating arrangement would best fit his needs?
A. Classroom style
B. U-shaped arrangement
C. D-shaped arrangement
D. Theater style
Answer B – In a training session in which the instructor would like it if everyone could observe each other, as well as the trainer, the U-shaped arrangement is generally the best.
Explanation: U-shaped seating arrangements are particularly effective when the training is going to be collaborative and/or if they use PowerPoint presentations or discussions. All trainees can see one another in this arrangement-as well as the instructor-and the middle of the room is left open for presentations, role-playing, or for additional seating.
