APRIL 20th  2011  Program

Join us for the monthly meeting of the Southwest Florida Chapter of ASTD.  This month’s topic is Designing Training.

In our ongoing journey to offer sessions based on the ASTD’s Areas of Expertise, please join Anne Schroeder for an enlightening session discussing the key ingredients for successful training design!  The premise behind “designing training” is to develop a learning process to meet the needs of participants and maximize the learning experience and impact.

It is important that we understand the theories and concepts of adult learning; how to identify characteristics and issues specific to our participants to create effective instruction. Central to it all is analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of instruction (ADDIE). At the core of every learning program is its content. Another key component is to include assessment methods for front-end assessment of needs and context, and back-end evaluation of outcomes of training.

Web-based or e-learning courses are becoming more common in adult education. One should understand the advantages and disadvantages of both Web-based training and classroom learning.
