COURSE TOPICS
How Do We Assess Learning Needs?
How can you get answers to better understand the need for learning? Asking good questions is key within a system for assessing needs.
Assessments in Action: Using Effective Questions
Asking clear specific questions is critical regardless of the tool you use. Asking good questions ensures you gather clear data to inform learning decisions, preventing analysis paralysis and leading to valuable solutions.
How Do We Support Individual Learners?
The needs of the business can only be met by supporting each individual learner and meeting their needs.
Who Should Attend

This could include instructional designers or trainers, but also managers responsible for individuals’ learning or subject matter experts who have been asked to help others learn.

Anyone responsible for creating, supporting, or leading learning experiences for an adult audience will benefit from the foundational concepts in this program. This may include trainers, facilitators, instructional designers, academic educators, community educators, consultants, coaches, and beyond. This program is also applicable if you are not a full-time learning professional but a practitioner or manager who is responsible for developing team members or transferring your knowledge through learning opportunities.
