SEPT 23-26, 2014 | FOUNDATIONS OF INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN

Today, training itself is no longer a competitive advantage. Learning must be conducted in a manner that maximizes an organization’s resources while focusing on addressing its particular needs. Trainers need to identify the areas of improvement within the system, and use them as a basis for formulating performance-oriented learning solutions.

The Foundations of Instructional Design (ID) is a four-day workshop that merges the Needs Analysis and Instructional Design stages to provide trainers a panoramic view of your organization’s training requirements. Discover misconceptions, inefficiencies and impracticalities in current practice, and learn proven techniques in ID using a practical, practitioner-based approach.

Learning Objective:

Working in teams, participants will be able to develop a program design following the Design Matrix format.

To enable this, the learners will be able to:

  • Distinguish between training- and non-training-treatable performance problems
  • Conduct Training Needs Analysis
  • Present TNA results in an audience-friendly manner
  • Translate analysis results to design elements
  • Develop measurable learning objectives that support performance
  • Choose assessment methods that align with objectives
  • Identify content based on objectives
  • Select instructional methods
  • Develop a course design
  • Assess integrity of course design

Key Topics:

  • Overview of ISD
  • Looking at the Big Picture: Is Training Needed?
  • Understanding the Need through Training Needs Analysis (TNA)
  • TNA Triangle
  • From TNA to Training Design
  • The Design Matrix
  • Objectives: Domains, Levels, and Hierarchy
  • Terminal and Enabling Objectives
  • Instructional Assessment
  • Completing the Matrix: Systematic Approach
  • Instructional Integrity

Participants:

The program is designed for Learning & Development professionals looking to deepen their competency in designing instructional material to provide solutions to their organization’s learning needs.

AUG 13-14, 2014 | COURSEWARE DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP: DEVELOPING LEARNER-CENTRIC TRAINING VISUALS

The use of effective visuals and handouts strengthen the learning experience. Unfortunately, most instructional materials used today either overwhelm the learners with too much content, or are presented in a manner that discourages active participation.

This workshop aims to impart the science behind effective courseware development that addresses learning principles and fundamentals. Through a learning-by-doing approach, participants will be able enhance the clarity and efficiency of training visuals, thus contributing to improved learning results.

Learning Objective:

Based on a course design, the participant will be able to develop/revise courseware in congruence to learning principles and fundamentals.

To enable this, the learners will be able to:

  • Recognize the types of courseware available
  • Explain the impact of courseware on the overall learning process
  • Explain learning principles and fundamentals that affect courseware effectiveness
  • Give examples that satisfy and violate learning principles in courseware development
  • Assess improvement areas of existing instructional materials
  • Develop sample PowerPoint slides and Participants’ handout based on a course design

Key Topics:

  • Types of Courseware
  • Adult learning Principles
  • Learning channels of communication
  • Media Types
  • Media Classification
  • Guidelines in Using Media Types
  • Instructional Strategies for Learning Efficiency 2

JULY 29-31, 2014 | TRAIN-THE-TRAINERS WORKSHOP: USING INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN PRINCIPLES

For training to be a strategic tool in an organization, relevant content must be delivered effectively. This often requires tapping the talents of Content Experts who have mastery of the knowledge and skills, but have not been prepared for the competencies training demands: particularly, organizing, simplifying content, and presenting this in an engaging manner. Without these skills, potentially valuable content is not imparted to the learners as desired, minimizing the transfer of learning and return on training investment.

The Train-the-Trainers program provides the skills set that enables you to sharpen your training and development skills through a hands-on, experience-based learning approach. Strengthen your practice and learn about the elements of a successful training program that will enable you to organize effective learning activities for your target audience.

Learning Objective:

Given an assigned topic, participants will be able to conduct a sample training session following the training delivery steps.

To enable this, the learners will be able to:

  • Distinguish between the roles of a subject-matter-expert and a trainer
  • Identify the guiding principles in adult learning
  • Describe how various learning styles affect training delivery
  • Distinguish when to use lecture, demo, and facilitation
  • Identify approaches to make training more focused and engaging using lecture, demonstration, or facilitation
  • Develop a session plan integrating the elements of effective training delivery
  • Conduct interactive sessions aligned with adult learning principles

Key Topics:

  • Challenges of a Trainer: Going beyond content expertise
  • Understanding Adult Learners
  • Planning our Session using Instructional Design Principles:

- Benefit for the learners
- Session Structure
- Execution Strategy

  • Training Delivery Steps for Interactive Learning
  • Basic Facilitation Techniques
  • Training Deportment
  • Addressing Common Dilemmas in Training

Participants:

Is the Train-the-Trainers program right for you?

  • I am a Subject Matter Expert now tasked to train others in my field of expertise
  • I am an experienced trainer who would like to refresh my training skills set with new interactive approaches
  • I am a lecturer who would like to integrate facilitation in my approach
  • I am a new trainer/would like to know more about training
