May 16, 2023 8:00 AM – May 17, 2023 4:30 PM EDT

This engaging and powerful two-day blended workshop covers current and traditional adult learning theories, practical instructional design, and delivery strategies and techniques. Adult educators and trainers will acquire knowledge and tools to immediately enhance the adult learning experience and expand their own abilities to deliver quality learning events and produce a sound return on investment.

Throughout the two days, participants will engage in 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 organization’s continuing education and training (CE/T) programs.

The workshop content aligns with the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training and prepares instructors and CE/T professionals - particularly for subject matter experts and those new to training and development and adult learning - to support their organization’s accreditation efforts.
