Build training programs with the strategic approach of a academic professor
Learning is a Learned behavior. And yet, training is the process of educating. But in many cases, corporate trainers (and others) create cognitive dissonance in business professionals and students by not utilizing similar design and implementation methodologies – or technology tools – used in academia. Simply put, student’s have learned to learn in a very specific way. And they expect those same levels in all of their training programs.
This lecture will walk you through the process of developing comprehensive lesson plans (for individual and group work) using various platforms such as on-ground, online or a hybrid learning model. Other components of the lecture include: tools students rely on during the learning process, developing assessments designed to evaluate student retention levels throughout the course, utilizing multi-media learning to help embed information, and online learning management technology systems to ease the administrative burden for organizations. And finally, also discussed will be how to develop student feedback surveys designed to help improve the key learning objectives of the course versus ancillary components not involved in learning.
