This two-day skill-building participant-centered workshop is designed to enable experienced and novice trainers create more effective program content and increase the probability that learning will occur through a variety of learning activities and audiovisual aids. It incorporates the UCLA Mastery Teaching Model and accelerated learning principles to provide practice with professional instructional decisions and techniques that research has demonstrated will accelerate and improve adult learning.
New trainers learn how to develop a detailed participant-centered lesson plan and design participant exercises that meet the needs of diverse adult learners. Seasoned trainers also find the training beneficial because it updates them on training techniques and gives them other choices for learning activities to present material.
On Day One, the participants work through three steps of a six-step process to create lesson plans for their own learning programs.
On Day Two, the participants work through the last three steps of the six-step process to complete their lesson plans and then design learning activities and trainer instructions that they can use in their learning programs.
