Overview

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

    I Also Recommend:

    An excellent guide for anyone who is required to develop learningin the workplace.

    While a very good overview of the entire process of developing workplace learning it is too concise. More in-depth coverage of each topic would have provided more benefit to the reader. This is a good book to use as an ongoing reference for each stage of developing learning prpograms. The reader should spend some time going over the parts that discuss learning methodologies in order to fully grasp these concepts. Further research may be helpful to those not familiar with the termonologies used, especially anyone who has not background in adult learning therories.The appendix sections are excellent examples that can serve as starting points for your own material.
