The Instructional Design and Facilitation for Adult Learning 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 insure instructors are trained in adult learning principles that support the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training. Keep in mind, this is not a seminar about how to achieve accreditation, rather how to prepare instructors to meet a quality standard in instructional facilitation.

If you are 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.

Seminar 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.

Teri Laliberte

Teri Laliberte’s work with adult learners as a trainer, teacher and mentor spans her 25-year (and still going) career in one capacity or another.  The early part of her teaching career was spent teaching English (ESL) internationally.  After earning a Master’s in Applied Linguistics, she lived in Turkey and Poland teaching at the University level.  Once back in the US she became a teacher trainer with the Great Books Foundation for k12 teachers working with gifted children.  After a brief hiatus to stay home with her three children she returned to ESL as a Director for English as a  second language programs with the University of Cincinnati, Northern Illinois University (with ELS Language Centers) and as a District Director oversaw the programs at many more partner universities.  While partnering with Universities she worked with the language programs to become accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET.)  This process taught her a deep respect for the accreditation process. Moving from the academic world to the association world she developed a train the trainer program and worked to standardize the training for her former employer, The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE,) in addition to developing a global trainer program. Having seen the benefits of accreditation for programs and learners, she believes whole heartedly in the mission of IACET and her work as the Director of Accreditation and Special Projects.   When not sharing her home office with her two greyhounds she can be found either running, swimming or cycling.
