Announcement

IACET is excited to announce that it has successfully tested its new “train-the-trainer” curriculum in test markets around North America, South America, the Middle East and is now making this popular two-day seminar available to groups who want to help instructors maximize their potential whether they are teaching online or in the classroom.
Above: IACET hosted an adult learning seminar for a sold out crowd in Lima, Peru.  

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.

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.
  • Apply best practices for identifying learner personality and strategies to teach to each personality type.

The seminar will also focus on how and why 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.
  • Learn how to set a pace for instruction and effectively monitor student mastery of content.
  • Keep learners engaged and interested.  Learn how to earn the respect of your audience and use games, discussions and other interactive strategies to stimulate learning.
  • Apply different learning methodologies to increase learning.
  • Identify popular instructional design models and learn to apply them to your programs.
  • Apply knowledge of personality types and learning styles to education programs.
  • Learn the basics of psychometrics and how to best measure learning.
  • Recognize pitfalls in assessment design and how to avoid them.
  • Learn how to engage learners and keep from being considered boring.
