Train-the-Trainer Workshop: A Practical Approach to Training Adults is an engaging and powerful two-day "train-the-trainer" workshop that covers current and traditional adult learning theories and practical instructional design and delivery strategies and techniques. This workshop provides adult educators and trainers with basic knowledge, tools, and techniques to immediately enhance their adult learners’ experiences, expand their abilities to deliver quality learning events, and produce a sound return on investment.  

Throughout the two days, participants will engage in several dynamic individual, small, and large group activities as well as complete a capstone project and presentation.  They will also take away concrete strategies to apply to their own organizations’ continuing education and training (CE/T) programs and experiences.

This workshop content aligns with the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training. It also prepares instructors and CE/T professionals (particularly those new to training and development and adult learning) to support their organizations’ accreditation efforts by providing high-quality learning experiences and programs.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Define "andragogy” and adult learner motivation.
  • Describe how the physiology of the brain relates to learning in adulthood.
  • Identify most common adult learning theories and learning styles.
  • Identify cultural dimensions and considerations for adult learning/training.
  • Compare common instructional design models and approaches.
  • Formulate strategies for conducting needs analysis.
  • Develop SMART learning outcomes.
  • Define the major delivery modalities (online, blended, instructor-led onsite) and instructional methods.
  • Identify best practices for using media in the classroom.
  • Apply strategies to address challenging instructor-led and online learner/learning situations.
  • Distinguish between placement, formative, and summative assessments.
  • Discuss methods and tools for collecting assessment data.
  • Discuss the four levels of Kirkpatrick's Program Evaluation Model.
  • Discuss methods and tools for collecting evaluation data.
  • Discuss ethics in training and development.

Audience: This basic to intermediate level workshop is ideal for instructors and subject matter experts (SMEs) who help design and deliver training and development programs.  It is also appropriate for individuals who are new to the fields of training and development, adult learning, and continuing education.  

Delivery Options:  This course is offered as a two-day, instructor-led class.  The core content can also be customized and delivered on site based an organization’s unique needs. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How can this all be accomplished in two days?

Who is this program designed for?

The Instructional Design and Facilitation for Adult Learning  is designed for instructors or trainers who need to strengthen their understanding of education principles used for adult education and training.
