August 24, 2017 9:00 AM – August 25, 2017 4:00 PM EDT

The Instructional Design Principles for Adult Learning Seminar provides a succinct and powerful two-day "train-the-trainer" program that will provide educators and trainers the ability to immediately improve education, enhance adult training techniques, and produce a return on investment. This program is offered exclusively by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), one of the world’s top non-profit education and training accreditation organizations. The seminar is designed to help ensure instructors are trained in adult learning principles that support the ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard for Continuing Education and Training. Keep in mind, this is not a seminar about how to achieve accreditation, but how to prepare instructors to meet a quality standard in instructional facilitation.

If you’re in charge of adult training, education programs and train people one at a time, in large groups, or online, this seminar provides critical knowledge on adult learning concepts and instructional design.

Day 1  highlights include:

  • Uncover the mystery of the physiology of learning and use it to enhance adult learning.
  • Gain insights on how to apply instructional design models that will streamline training, reduce waste and save the developer time while enhancing learning.
  • Discover five methods for motivating adult learners in class and online.
  • How to facilitate powerful learning experiences with: cooperative groups, interviewing, and role playing to make learning fun and exciting.

On day 2 we will apply methods for how adults learn and to:

  • Design credible online learning and classroom programs that meet international education standards.
  • Differentiate strategies for online and classroom courses.
  • Save hours in developing forms, checklists and course design documents. IACET provides sample course design documents, evaluations and checklists that streamline program development.
