Instructional Design for the Corporate Trainer: A Handbook on the Science of Training
Instructional Design for the Corporate Trainer begins with the academic or theoretical aspects of instructional design. It gives the reader baseline knowledge about adult learning theory, cognitive and behavioral psychology, motivation, and both cognitive and affective levels of learning. Once this foundation of knowledge is established, the book walks you through: · writing level of learning objectives, · developing a means to measure success, · determining the best teaching method, · deciding on the best way to organize your lesson, and · how to document both a lesson plan which outlines your approach and a teaching plan that can serve as a road map for delivering the lesson.
This handbook on the science of training will take corporate trainers to the next level of their profession. It serves as a reminder that for training to be successful it needs to be more a great presentation. --------------- “… builds the foundation of adult learning… use Instructional Design for the Corporate Trainer as your guide to designing curriculum that delivers real performance improvement.” Cindy Stynchula Owner, Stynchula & Associates
