Developing your Training Program at Centre for Training and Professional Development, the training wing of Asian College of Teachers has been specially designed for new trainers who are keen to develop meaningful and practical training programs that will benefit both the trainees and the organizations they work with. The online program is helpful in clarifying to the participants the essential elements of a training program and applying different methodologies to design a program. The participants will learn to demonstrate skills in preparation, research and delivery of strong content using an instructional model. The program also includes creating a training program proposal.
This session will explore some things that need to be considered before committing to developing a training program. We will also look at some situations where training is not appropriate and some alternatives to training.
Participants will look at how to determine what training is really necessary using the ICE method: Isolate, Consult, and Evaluate.
Next, we will explore a seven-step instructional systems design model. We will focus on adult learning and some basic principles that apply to developing training.
Next, participants will learn how to create the basic outline for the program by writing objectives for knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA's).
Of course, it is hard to know what you want to teach without knowing how you'll know you've taught it! This session will look at evaluation methods and how they tie into learning objectives.
This session will look at a basic method that participants can use to design their program. We will also explore some specific learning tools, including demonstrations, case studies, guided teaching, study groups, role plays, games and simulations, and e-learning.
Now that we have a framework for the design of the program, participants will learn where to find the content. We will also talk about fads and copyright issues.
This session will explore the value of pre-assignments through a pre-assignment.
We will talk about how to start off your training, different types of games, and some ways to make sure your game doesn't fall flat.
Pre-designed testing tools can help with many training topics. This session will discuss how to make the most of these tools.
Most trainers prepare notes for themselves to use as they are teaching their program. This session will look at some other materials that can enhance your training program, including student guides, handouts, and electronic slides.
Participants will discuss ways to test their training program before they deliver it.
Participants will learn how to organize and write a training proposal, and then they will apply the knowledge to a case study.
We will discuss some ways to ensure that your proposal gets approved.
To conclude the course, participants will create individual action plans.
At the end of the program, students will have an opportunity to mail their queries to the trainer.
