What You'll Learn

How to select training methods, craft activities and evaluate training are strong components of this workshop that follows a traditional Instructional Systems Design (ISD) model.
Participants are encouraged to select a course they are designing or redesigning and bring learning objectives, content outline and any materials that have been developed. This course will be used to practice the tools introduced in the course.

Unit 3: Organize and Plan Materials Development

Check our website at www.thetrainingclinic.com or connect with us on Facebook or LinkedIn for the latest information about our well known series of public workshops. You can take a single workshop or combine them (with a project or two) for a much lauded Training Clinic Certification.
Just-in-Time Training: Each one or two day workshop covers just those skills you need at this moment in your professional development. You won’t sit through or pay for 3, 4, 5 days or more of content that you don’t need now, or maybe ever.
Practical Content: You’ll recognize and identify with the issues raised because they are the same concerns you are coping with each working day. Your workshop instructor is an active training/HRD consultant who will share with you real world experiences. We focus on practical application, not theory. You will work on your organization’s real issues and develop action plans and materials to use on the job the very next day.
Constantly Updated Content: Our workshops are revised regularly with input from past participants, instructors and research into state-of-the-art materials to make sure the content is current, reliable and fresh.
Involving and Challenging Materials: Each workshop is designed using the latest learning techniques and then analyzed in 15-minute segments (using a Training Clinic copyrighted, exclusive technique) to select the best method to communicate the content. We hold your interest through effective use of lecturettes, discussions, case studies, inventories, audiovisuals, role plays, self assessments, checklists, planning tools and more. Lectures are kept to a minimum.
Master Practitioner Instructors: Each of our instructors is an active training/HRD consultant with 15-30 years of directly related experience in the subjects they are teaching. Daily they advise and solve problems for their clients in business and government. They are not captive employees who simply repeat the same content day after day. They are active practitioners working in the real world and mastering today’s training problems. You’ll learn from their real world examples, advice and answers. Importantly, our instructors model that they teach and train through demonstration of each technique rather than by lecturing about it.
Experience: The Training Clinic is celebrating its 37th anniversary as America’s train-the-trainer leader. Share the experiences of hundreds of thousands of people who have improved their skills by attending a Training Clinic workshop.
