Overview

A how-to guide to masterful training, Instructor Excellence will help both the professional and novice achieve superior results in the classroom. The book offers advice on all aspects of instructor performance, including how best to prepare for classes, inspire class participation, develop effective presentation skills, use training aids, and evaluate course effectiveness. And it provides managers of training programs with the performance standards they require to evaluate instructors effectively. For new instructors the book provides valuable information about how adults learn and suggests ways to begin training in accordance with standards of excellence. It helps seasoned trainers determine which instructional techniques work--and which do not--and guides them through a self-assessment to improve their own performance. For managers of training programs, Instructor Excellence details performance expectations that are essential in assessing the success of training, but often difficult and time-consuming to develop. And it reveals how managers can influence training success by nurturing instructors' careers from hire through job training and evaluation. And it links all training elements into an interactive training system. A wealth of tools and instruments are included to help translate the book's recommendations to immediate action.
