Train the eLearning & Blended Learning Trainer Workshop

Duration: 2 days

Introduction

eLearning by itself or in combination with face-to-face classroom training (i.e. Blended Learning) increases the ROI of training, is very flexible and contributes to more engaged and satisfied employees, especially the new generations of professionals (such as millennials).

The question raised is how classroom in-house trainers can acquire the skills to design and deliver eLearning and/or blended learning trainings and be more autonomous in the use of e-learning platforms and webinars and in the creation of efficient learning material.

This highly interactive and Neuroscience-based two days ‘Train the eLearning & Blended Learning Trainer’ workshop will prepare and coach internal trainers, so that they can design, develop and deliver in-house eLearning & Blended Learning courses to the highest possible standards, leading to actual business results.

Who It’s For

Professionals who have the responsibility to deliver in-house trainings under their Functional role, Corporate Trainers, Training Specialists, HR professionals, Training Managers and in general professionals involved in the eLearning and Blended Learning.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to: 

  • Understand asynchronous / synchronous e-Learning and Blended Learning
  • Apply Neuroscience and Brain Based Learning tools and techniques to improve retention, understanding, skills and achieve long term change in the behavior of their trainees
  • Design and implement essential Training Needs Analyses in Blended Learning / e-Learning training programs
  • Design and develop eLearning/Bended Learning lesson plans using the most suitable training methods and techniques for Asynchronous and Synchronous delivery, such as Flipped Classroom, microlearning etc.
  • Design and develop eLearning Material (Assets and SCORM)
    • Narrated Video Presentations and Demonstrations
    • Animated videos
    • Quizzes that enable real-time feedback
    • Gamification elements
  • Use the appropriate Software and hardware for Asynchronous and Synchronous delivery (Webinars & Web conferences)
