Overview

When the first edition of Instructor Excellence was published in 1992, it became an instant bestseller among professionals who deliver and manage training. This thoroughly revised and updated second edition complements the timeless standards that made the first edition a classic and covers relevant developments in the design and delivery of training, including online and videoconferencing facilitation and current research on what sets exemplary instructors apart from the average.

This new edition also provides fresh and original guidelines and resources about how adults learn and shows how to instruct adults based on standards of excellence. Instructor Excellence guides instructors through a self-assessment to improve their own performance and outlines the performance expectations essential in assessing the success of training. It also includes information to make it easier to write job descriptions, select qualified trainers, establish trainer standards, train new trainers, and develop trainers' careers.

Written for both new and seasoned instructors, Instructor Excellence not only shows which instructional techniques work, it also features updated references, case studies, tools, and worksheets to help today's trainers achieve instructor excellence, including a new CD-ROM, which includes a leader's guide for training instructors.?
