Instructional Designs and Strategies On-Site Training

Learn to be able to design strong training courses using the Critical Events Model as a guide

Course Description/Agenda

Length: 3 days
Number of Participants:
Up to 20
Materials: Notebooks and handouts provided

This course is designed for professionals who are facilitating and/or designing training. The overall objective of this course is for the learners to be able to design strong training courses using the Critical Events Model as a guide. This training design and implementation model is a concrete and practical way to design effective training.

All terminal (or course) objectives are written for learners whose professional role involves the design, selection, or management of human resource development programs. The primary role is that of a thoughtful evaluator of needs, programs, vendors, and implementation. This professional will often serve as a link between levels of the organization and between the organization and outside vendors.

Each of these objectives incorporates a series of specific knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to achieve these competencies. These enabling objectives are identified in the course notebook.
