Takeaway Tuesday

The “forgetting curve” described by Hermann Ellinghaus suggests that learners forget 80% of what they learn within 30 days of leaving a class. Takeaway Tuesday is a way to deliver content to interviewers in bite-sized, focused bursts and will reinforce information learned during any basic forensic interviewing training. It will give Forensic Interviewers specific, research-based directives to immediately adapt and use in their forensic interviews.

Takeaway Tuesday  is a new online, micro-learning initiative. The micro-learning units consist of a short (5-7 minutes) video, resources, such as: Fact Sheets, Info Prints, Research-to-Practice articles written by experts in the field,  webinars available through NCAC Virtual Training Center, and/or other materials available in  CALiOTM (Child Abuse Library Online).
