The Training Design workshop picks up where the
Optimizing Human Performance Workshop left off and presents an innovative
approach to training design that produces exemplary job performance.
focus of this four-day workshop is on designing training that addresses what
employees need in order to perform their jobs instead of unnecessary information that
does not relate to the goal of the organization. Training is
accomplishment-based (that is, it has a direct effect on what employees do and
produce) and is tied to the achievement of an organization's goals.
workshop is presented in-house at your facility.
Rationale for course:
presented in this workshop will enable participants to maximize the effect of
training on their organization's goals while minimizing the costs.
millions of dollars simply by revising existing training to make it
The best training is always the shortest training. Take the initiative
to complete what Marilyn Gilbert calls a "Performance
Edit" to revise existing training. The use of special instructional tactics leads to a process of
instructional design that is unique to the ABCD System. This approach is one of
the first "performance-based" approaches in that it begins by
identifying the performance/behaviors to be learned and leads the designer to
select an instructional strategy that specifically deals with the learning
problem inherent in that performance.
The basic steps are:
- Identity the behavior
to be learned
- Determine the behavior characteristics of the performance to be
- Identify learning problems inherent in the behavior characteristics to
- Develop the six general tactics that are basic of all good instruction
- Add special instructional tactics that will appropriately treat the learning
problems which are present in the performance to be learned
Upon completion of this
workshop and given the job aids included, participants will be able to design
accomplishment-based curricula, courses, and modules.
You will learn how to produce:
- A description of BEHAVIOR to be trained to a more
detailed level than done in Front-End Analysis
- A decision on where to store information about the
tasks to be trained, in the memory of trainees or in Job Aids
- Specification of PARAMETERS and CONSTRAINTS which must
be considered in the Design phase of the project.
- In addition, you be able to determine, a curriculum plan a course plan, and a module plan.
- You will be able to identify special learning problems, form units, select
tactics, decide simulation media, and plan module activities.
Each day consists of brief presentations with
extensive examples, time allotted for self-study, practice exercises as well as
specific application of tools to participant's needs.
