Facilitate Quality Learning Training Course

Facilitate Quality Learning Training Courses

Course Overview

This course focuses on developing facilitation skills that will engage learners and consistently achieve workplace learning outcomes. During the first day we investigate the principles of adult learning and identify how to cater to different learning styles. We then focus on preparing to deliver a training session, including developing quality learning content and managing PowerPoint. On day 2 we apply these concepts to the facilitation process by exploring a range of different facilitation techniques that fully engage adult learners. Participants will then be given the opportunity to apply new skills by delivering a short learning session, followed by a facilitated feedback discussion.
