Designing Training for the Adult Learner

This interactive workshop shows you how to incorporate adult learning principles and structure into your training presentations to ensure that adults get the most out of them. Create trainings that trigger the senses, facilitate independent learning, and maximize performance. Explore why learning styles matter and how the brain learns. Learn how to plan, prepare, and design training using a 5-step model, C.E.D.A.R., to make your learning sessions interactive and engaging. Training tools and techniques will include using metaphors, analogies and stories; asking questions that promote learning; creating the right training activities and exercises; and enhancing memory and retention to make training stick. 

(This is part of the Human Resources Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
