Chapter 10 Training Sessions
Developing the training session includes creating content-scripts (i.e., the instruction a trainer will provide the participants before they begin their active learning), selecting learning activities (strategies), developing materials for the training session, and creating an employee-learner post-test to assess learning at the end of the training session.
Developing a training sessions involves preparing materials that help employee-learners actively process the material to achieve the learning outcomes. Examples of adult learner active learning strategies include: small group exercises, games, case studies, role-play, simulations, and observations.
Keep the following points in mind when creating learning activities for employee-learners:
- Materials should be clearly relevant to their work.
- Give them opportunities to experience the principles you are introducing.
- Develop training materials that take into account their level of experience and expertise.
- Be prepared to modify your training session while implementing based on the employee-learners needs.
