Abstract :

Closure is the process by which the human mind supplies information missing from ideas and makes connections between seemingly unrelated ideas or objects. Trainers can increase the effectiveness of employee training by using closure techniques in programs. The techniques which can be used include: embedded messages, analogous images, and word play. Utilizing closure techniques provides the advantages of: keeping trainees attentive; involving trainees in the learning process; and enhancing trainees' mental and memorization processes.
