About Lesson

A session plan is a detailed outline created by a trainer to guide the delivery of a training session or lesson. It serves as a roadmap to ensure that the content is presented in an organised, logical, and effective manner, aligning with the learning outcomes and competencies outlined in the relevant training package or accredited course.

A session plan typically includes the following key components:

  • Objectives: Clear statements about what the learners are expected to know, understand, or be able to do by the end of the session.
  • Content: An outline of the topics or concepts to be covered, often broken down into manageable segments.
  • Activities: Descriptions of the teaching and learning strategies to be employed, such as lectures, discussions, practical exercises, group work, or multimedia presentations, designed to engage learners and facilitate their understanding of the subject matter.
  • Resources: A list of materials, tools, and equipment required to conduct the session, including textbooks, handouts, slides, and any specialised equipment needed for practical activities.
  • Formative assessment: Methods and tools to evaluate learners’ understanding and application of the content, which might include quizzes, assignments, practical demonstrations, or discussions.
  • Timing: A schedule that allocates specific timeframes to each segment of the session, ensuring that all content is covered efficiently and learning objectives are met within the available time.
  • Adjustments: Consideration of any modifications or support required to accommodate diverse learning needs and preferences, ensuring inclusivity and accessibility for all participants.

The development of a session plan requires an understanding of the learners’ backgrounds, the subject matter, and effective pedagogical strategies. It is a critical tool in vocational education in Australia, where the focus is on practical, competency-based learning that equips students with specific skills and knowledge relevant to their chosen industry or profession.
