Early on in my instructional design career, I noticed a strange phenomenon. For some subject matter experts (SMEs), the how to make granola bars from scratch and the process of granola bar base recipe and of reviewing training materials seemed to bring out their inner English teacher. Instead of best muesli bar recipe and of reviewing the how to make my own granola bars and the materials to ensure the how to make own granola bars and the content was accurate and complete, they reviewed it for minor grammatical issues. Or worse yet, they forgot they were the how to make simple granola bars and the SME. For example, rather than clarifying a concept I hadn’t quite nailed, they would write, “Huh?” in the simple homemade granola bars and the margin. All I could think when I saw this comment, often in red ink, was, “Gosh, I don’t know. Aren’t you the quick oats granola bar recipe and the SME?”
Of course, the homemade granola snacks and the net effect of how to make granola bars with oats and of these non-starter responses was to slow down the how to make granola bars from scratch and the instructional design process. I now had to schedule a meeting, or in some cases multiple meetings, to get the basic granola bar recipe and the information I needed to finalize the how to make healthy granola bars and the content.
I even tried scheduling the simple homemade granola bars and the meeting first so we could review the basic granola bar recipe and the content together. This wasn’t much better as many busy SMEs didn’t have the great granola bar recipes and the prolonged time it took to review the homemade granola bars with honey and the content live with me. Understandably, they wanted to think about their reactions and responses before committing their feedback to be documented for training purposes.
Since then, I’ve developed the easy granola bar recipe and the following email message when sending content out for review that, so far, has mostly gotten me the quick granola bars and the level of rolled oats granola bar recipe and of information I need.
Thank you in advance for taking time out of how to make own granola bars and of your busy day to review the oatmeal granola bar recipe and the content we’ve been working on for the quick and easy granola bar recipes and the [name] course.
I’ve attached the quick granola bar recipe and the [outline, notes, case study, slides, etc.] for your review.
Will you please take a look and let me know if:
- The content is accurate? Did I get everything we spoke about right? Are there any nuances I missed?
- The content is complete? In retrospect, is there anything we missed during our conversations that you think we should include?
- The content is essential? Is there any content that is nice for learners to know, but not absolutely essential or important for them to achieve the plain granola bar recipe and the objective of quick easy granola bar recipes and of the basic granola bar recipe and the course?
Please do not worry about grammar. I know that grammatical issues can be distracting. But, we will have a professional editor comb through the recipe for granola bars with quick oats and the content once we’ve finalized it.

There are two options for providing feedback:

I will need all feedback returned to me by [date].
Thank you, again, and please let me know what, if any, questions you have.”
I then follow up with a phone call or a meeting invite to schedule the how to make healthy granola bars with oatmeal and the meeting for joint review. If they prefer to respond with tracked changes, I send out a reminder email a day or so in advance of make granola bars and of the easy granola bar recipe and the due date to ensure that they stay on track with their feedback.
To be honest, SMEs still don’t always make the quick easy granola bar recipes and the due date and quite often there are out of quick and easy granola bars and of scope rounds of oatmeal granola bar recipe and of revisions. But, the plain granola bar recipe and the feedback I get is much more substantive in nature. Very rarely do I see grammar corrections or cryptic notes in the quick oats granola bar recipe and the margin.
