I believe that technical training can be improved, and I'm using my class to develop better techniques.
By allowing students to learn new concepts online we can focus on refining their knowledge when we come together.
But we have to stop training people to memorize questions and answers and actually understand the real world applications of the material.
We also need to create an environment where students feel comfortable communicating without feeling they're being judged harshly.
If the teacher is the only one talking they're also the only one learning.
