The next step after completing the Train the Trainer course, Learning Dynamics for Instructors examines the dynamics of the classroom and describes techniques for managing these dynamics to maximize learning. This course builds on the foundation developed in the prerequisite APICS Train the Trainer course that provided the base knowledge and skills to become an effective instructor.

Designed for a workshop setting, this eight-session course is of specific interest to experienced trainers and educators. Workshop participants will gain a better understanding of adult learning principles and learning styles, in addition to discovering how to select appropriate training methods, enhance listening skills, improve questioning skills, use feedback, and handle challenging situations. Workshop participants are involved in several interactive experiences throughout the two-day workshop.

This intensive and interactive two–day, hands-on workshop includes:

  • Identifying the elements of an effective and positive learning environment
  • Selecting active training methods to maximize learning
  • Using interactive communication skills to assess and reinforce learning
  • Developing and practicing strategies for handling problem situations
  • Enhancing the motivation of learners
  • Increasing skill in obtaining and using feedback from learners
  • Practicing impromptu speaking
  • Matching training methods to learning objectives
  • Planning for future instructional skills development
