Centre for Training and Professional Development, the training wing of Asian College of Teachers has designed this program for new trainers as well as for experienced professionals who are without much understanding of what training is or how to do it well. The duty of a good trainer is to bring information to an audience and in order to do that they need to develop the required skills. This information will then engage, empower, and encourage continued learning and development. During the course of the program, you will be able to refine and develop the objectives of the training and mail your queries at the end of it.
Candidates will have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
This online program will give you the skills that you need so that the learners not only learn, but also enjoy the process, retain information shared, and use their new skills back in the workplace.
Next, participants will discuss the characteristics of a successful trainer, including how to stimulate a readiness to learn. Participants will also look at common mistakes made by trainers, and they will point out ways to avoid or resolve those issues.
In this section, participants will explore the differences between adult and child learners in small groups.
The adult learning process has four distinct steps. Participants will look at each step and discuss how they can use this model to help trainees learn.
This section will explore the key principles of adult learning through various assignments.
In this section, participants will explore the four basic steps in learning. Participants will also explore some ways to cover all points of the cycle in a training program.
During this section, we will look at four main types of trainers. Participants will explore their type and discuss how this knowledge can help them become better trainers. The section will wrap up with a discussion of the experiential learning process.
For every learning point we make, trainers must consider the learning cycle to ensure that the learners get it. This section will explore the cycle through two different exercises.
Another powerful aspect to understanding yourself and others is to recognize whether you are an introvert or an extrovert. This section will ask participants to consider which side they fall on, and how to use that knowledge in training.
This section will introduce the six basic steps in the training process and discuss the first step: performing a needs analysis.
The next two steps in the training process are to develop the training and prepare employees. We will examine these steps through a lecture and group work.
The fourth step of the training process is to conduct the training. During this section, we will begin looking at some key parts of this step, including training methods and environmental concerns.
This section will introduce participants to the four parts of an effective learning sequence. Then, participants will practice creating a few sequences of their own.
Continuing with the fourth step, participants will learn how to choose games to add to their training.
This section will discuss some of the key factors that set the training climate.
During this section, participants will explore some different ways to communicate with the audience, including telling, showing, non-verbal communication, and using notes. Participants will also examine some different types of visual aids that they can use and how best to use them.
Participants will complete a brainstorming exercise to identify types of difficult trainees and ways to deal with them.
Job instruction training (or on-the-job training) is becoming more and more prevalent. This section will discuss a four-step plan to make job training a success.
We have set aside an assignment for participants to prepare a short training program.
It is now time to go back to the fifth step of the training process: evaluations. We will examine several methods that participants can use to evaluate the success of their program.
At the end of the course, the candidates will have an opportunity to mail their queries and fill out an action plan.
