Training is one of the most important investments an organization can make. Many organizations have increased the use of in-house experts for training. It's less expensive than bringing in an outside consultant, and learning is more focused and more specific to the organization.
While you have the content knowledge, you may need some coaching on the basics of effective presenting and training. This manual is designed to give you fundamental skills in conducting a training session.
In this module we will discuss the following topics:
• How to select a subject and define your audience
• Writing action-oriented objectives
• Planning and sequencing topics
• Determining the most appropriate presentation methods
• Tips for preparing visual aids
• Speaking effectively to any size group
All employees responsible for training, cross-training, or making formal presentations could benefit from this module. The major objective is to plan, design, and deliver an effective training session that transfers knowledge in an interactive and effective manner.
This module can be presented with a minimum of four hours, more for practice, demonstration, and feedback. Ideally, two half days should be allotted: the first session to learn the material and prepare the presentation, and the second to deliver it to other participants for feedback and pointers.
