Training the Trainer Courses , Online Courses For Trainers

Training means more than just telling (or yelling) at people about what they need to do to perform their jobs. It should be planned more systematically than just asking new hires to follow more experienced workers around. In fact, many approaches have been created over the year to guide effective training-including the so-called Instructional Systems Design (ISD) model, the Successive Approximation Model (SAM), and many others. This session will describe those approaches as well as newer approaches such as Action Learning (AL).

How is training defined? How does it differ from education or development? How can training be designed efficiently and effectively? Why can effective training slash the unproductive breaking-in period of new hires, keep workers' skills current at a time of rapid change, and prepare people for more responsibility? This webinar will address these important questions.
