This one-day course is designed to assist participants in planning and delivering safety training. Ideas and strategies are presented that will provide participants with a basis for making sound decisions in their training settings. The emphasis in this course is on the development of practical skills that they can take back and use in the classroom or in their work setting. This course will enable participants to:
- Design a training session and use media in instruction
- Conduct a lively interactive training session
- Select appropriate instructional strategies and learning activities
- Use effective visual materials
- Deliver instruction in a supportive environment
This course uses a simulation format. Participants will be asked to deliver one short lesson (mini-lesson). In addition, they will be asked to participate as a learner during the lessons that are taught by their colleagues. Each of the simulated lessons will last approximately 10-15 minutes. As the learner during others’ presentations, they will complete a feedback form and then take part in a brief wrap-up session during which the “learners” and “instructor” of that lesson share their insights and suggestions.
This course provides up-to-date information about how to instruct adults. The knowledge and skills gained will assist participants to develop effective instructional practices quickly. The ideas presented in this course represent thousands of hours of experience from a wide variety of trainers and adult educators. The emphasis of the course is on the delivery of training and will focus on lesson presentations.
