9780814415665: Instructional Design for Action Learning

Training participants learn and retain more by relating lessons to their own on-the-job experiences. By using the strategies of "action learning" in their lesson design and presentation, trainers can ensure that learners absorb material deeply, in a way that lets them immediately use it in their jobs to get real, measurable results.

Filled with examples of action learning techniques readers can implement in their training design and delivery, this book shows them how to:

- Create fun and memorable activities that match participants' needs, learning styles, and levels of understanding.

- Encourage learners to build on their own experiences.

- Evaluate learner mastery during the entire learning event.

- Strengthen learning transfer back on the job.

- Accurately measure post-training results.

It's a trainer's job to ensure their lessons stick. Instructional Design for Action Learning provides readers with the tools they need to make it happen.

From the Back Cover:

Let’s face it: most people’s instinctive response to training tends to run something like, “Oh, no! I need to be getting work done! I don’t have time to be away from my desk, participating in exercises that have nothing to do with my actual responsibilities!” And while some participants come in with a bright and cheery attitude, eager to be engaged in training that might help them some day, the fact is that there’s a very good chance that by the time “that day” arrives, they’ll have forgotten most of what they may have learned.

It’s your job as a trainer to make sure that that doesn’t happen. Widely recognized as being at the forefront of educational theory, the method known as Action Learning engages training participants immediately, immersing them in learning events by having them actively relate practical lessons to their own on-the-job experiences.

Filled with examples of action learning techniques you can easily implement in your training design and delivery, this book shows you how to:

· Create fun and memorable activities that match participants’ needs, learning styles, and levels of understanding.

· Encourage learners to build on their own experiences.

· Evaluate learner mastery during the entire learning event.

· Strengthen learning transfer back on the job.

· Accurately measure post-training results.

The book walks you through the six fundamental steps necessary for superior instructional design, from defining the need for training, to planning, to delivery, to evaluation. Filled with numerous examples of active, thought-stimulating learning techniques, Instructional Design for Action Learning shows you how to engage participants and appeal to all learner styles and learning levels; identify and manage difficult learning situations (and people) when conducting training; and facilitate both small and large training groups easily and effectively.

It’s a fact: Training participants learn and retain more by relating lessons directly to their own work. With organizations increasingly more insistent that facilitators provide lessons with measurable results that will immediately boost performance and the bottom line, it’s crucial that learners walk away armed with the benefit of real tools. This book gives you all the guidance and exercises you need to incorporate action learning into every training you conduct.
