A rapidly changing world drives the need for continual and ongoing training for today’s workforce. This also means that managers have to gain competency in selecting the right types of training for their teams. In this class, students will learn the complete cycle of the training process from designing needs assessment, creating learning objectives, designing and delivering training, to evaluating training effectiveness. Adult learning characteristics, multiple learning styles, and facilitation techniques will also be taught and practiced. In the final class, students will apply their learning by designing and delivering a short training to the class.
