Book Summary

As a professional development trainer, do you ever wonder if people are really listening--or if they’ll remember what you said enough to see the impact of your lesson? Discover the training strategies that help learners deeply absorb material to achieve measurable results.

About the Book

This book gives you all the guidance and exercises you need to incorporate action learning into every training you conduct.

A trainer’s job is to ensure their lessons stick, which means relating lessons to their trainees’ own on-the-job experiences. Author Geri McArdle teaches trainers how to do this by using the strategies of “action learning” in their lesson design and presentation to help learners better absorb the material.

Filled with examples of easy-to-implement action learning techniques, Instructional Design for Action Learning shows you how to: 

  • create fun and memorable activities that match participants’ needs, learning styles, and levels of understanding;
  • encourage learners to build on their own experiences;
  • evaluate learner mastery during the entire learning event;
  • strengthen learning transfer back on the job;
  • and accurately measure post-training results.

By providing trainers with the tools they need to make real learning happen, this essential guide strengthens the value of your program--and the job performance of those you train.
