Your participants are adults who have a certain set of needs that must be met in order for them to learn. Most training programs aren't designed around how adults learn best. Instead they focus on the instructor and his or her lecture, which often leads to poor learning results. The Instructional Design Workshop focuses on participants' needs. After all, it’s only when their needs are fully met that they're engaged and ready to learn. Learn how to infuse your lessons with excitement and fun, and still achieve an environment that maximizes learning. Familiarize yourself with brain-based science and adult learning theory so you can create engaging, interactive training that truly makes a difference back on the job. Apply our eight step design process to enhance your existing program or create something new from scratch. Adapt, adopt and apply this proven design process and create Instructor-Led, Participant-Centered courses that help people learn twice as much in half the time. This workshop provides you with the knowledge you need, an easy and repeatable process, and a design template you can customize to fit any training program. Fee per person: $1,895
