Train-the-Trainer: How Adults Learn
Discover how an adult’s learning styles are significantly different than a child’s. Banish the boring lecture, the professorial tone and the theoretical babble. Instead, develop a new, more energized and effective style of training designed specifically for the unique learning needs of adults and experienced working professional.
Train the Trainer: How Adults Learn helps you develop a deeper understanding of the unique aspects of adult learning and incorporate this knowledge into making your own training programs more engaging and effective – creating the kind of training that produces a positive, memorable learning experience and lasting impact for the participants in your training programs.
Train the Trainer: Planning, Designing & Evaluating Training helps you to develop a new, more energized and more effective classroom learning experience. You’ll learn how to save time and money during the design process. And more importantly, you’ll add to, modify and edit one of your existing training programs so that it becomes a more learner-focused and results-oriented training design, and serves as a model for other training programs you develop.
Train the Trainer: Proven Classroom Training Techniques is the final program in our popular Train the Trainer Series Certificate Program. This is two days of heavy duty immersion learning — you will learn by doing and discover how to help your trainees do the same. You’ll explore every stage of the facilitation process from icebreakers at the opening to action planning at the close. You’ll learn at your own pace and face challenges geared toward your level of expertise.
Best of all, you’ll get to see yourself in action. You’ll be videotaped while conducting a brief training sequence then receive feedback from your instructor. Here is a rare opportunity to assess and refine your classroom technique with the help of other training professionals. Participation in this session can literally revolutionize the way you approach every training challenge.
If you develop, facilitate or evaluate training programs for adults, this program is designed for you.
