Course TitleDesigning and Delivering A Training Session
DescriptionThis train-the-trainer course teaches curriculum developers and/or trainers how to design an effective training session and includes the opportunity to practice effective presentation and classroom management skills. It covers the fundamentals of instructional design, adult learning principles, writing objectives and lesson plans, and interactive strategies to engage participants in learning. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about alternative delivery methods other than a traditional classroom approach with an overview of different types of distance learning as well. Other topics include: effective communication in the classroom, learning styles, dealing with nervousness and handling difficult situations. During this course, participants use a variety of methods, techniques and training aids to design and deliver their own 20-minute training session. Videotaping of class presentations and constructive participant feedback help participant’s to add powerful tools to their training repertoire. If you have a module that you are currently creating, revising, etc. feel free to bring that with you. If you are not currently working on a module, please think of a topic that you would like to present to the class. You will have extensive time prior to your presentation to work on the material.
