The Training Series - 2: The Learner and Training Design
8.30am until 12.30pm
Online Course (Live Session)
For training to be effective the learner needs to be engaged. Learner engagement goes deeper than employee engagement. Adult learners have life experiences that they want incorporated into their learning and are more interested in the specifics of a topic. Understanding this complex mix of motivations and expectations leads us to a more effective design of training. During this session we will describe principles of adult learning and learn to incorporate learning styles into training design. More focus will be invested into programme development keeping in mind competency-based learning and aligning the training needs and organizational goals.
