Train the Trainer-For Classroom Instructors

Let’s avoid “Death by PowerPoint” and make workplace training show a positive impact.

Teach your instructors to avoid Death by PowerPoint

Often Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are not given guidance in instructional design through Train the Trainer courses, and so they rely on the old standard: Slides and the occasional quiz. But this is ineffective; students may retain enough to get through a quiz at the end of class, but are often not able to transfer new behaviors to the job. Train the Trainer is critical for experts assigned to build job skills in others.

Sometimes the best SMEs are the worst at transferring knowledge. The solution is to carefully choose trainers who are interested in teaching others, experts on systems/equipment and are proven to communicate effectively.

With Train the Trainer, teach them to transfer their knowledge into training plans and materials that can take a student from zero knowledge to 100% competence.
