In an ideal world, we have unlimited time and resources with which to create stellar training programs and materials. However, the real world does not offer us this luxury. Sometimes, we have only days in which to plan, design, and distribute training deliverables that need to engage learners, yet still be simple enough to produce and distribute.
In this session, we will review nine steps for quickly assembling a basic training program from start to finish. Within the framework of relevant cat photos and anecdotes, we will examine each step and share specific tips and strategies for implementing these steps. Where relevant, we will also review some real-life training examples. By the end of this presentation, you will have the necessary knowledge to respond effectively to most last-minute training requests.
Takeaways include the following:
- Identify what your learners’ need to know; doing so will help you maintain 20/20 focus on developing your training materials.
- Keep materials simple by dividing content into manageable sections, using templates, and reusing content where possible.
- Take time to develop evaluation tools—even a simple checklist or survey—to make sure your training is effective.
