The effectiveness of a training program depends upon the decisions that the instructors make about what will be taught and how it will be taught. It is possible to determine the probability of learning in the training room by evaluating those decisions, regardless of the degree of technical knowledge of the subject matter.
This two-day skill-building participant-centered workshop is designed for individuals who are expected to audit training programs and have little or no training experience themselves.
Day One. Since the participants lack training experience, this day is devoted to increasing the participants’ working knowledge of what is involved in developing and presenting an effective training program. Using the UCLA Mastery Teaching Model, the participants learn and practice professional instructional decisions and techniques that research has demonstrated will accelerate and improve adult learning.
Day Two. Once the participants understand what to look for when auditing a training program, interactive exercises and simulations allow the participants to apply Mastery Teaching concepts in the audit and assessment of real training case samples for lead and/or asbestos abatement training.
During the training, the participants: assess the three categories of training decisions that an instructor makes, determine the instructional techniques that can facilitate the acquisition of learning, and apply the UCLA mastery teaching model to evaluate the effectiveness of a training program.
