Humor can help you make your training sessions just as engaging as fun social occasions. Even better, you don’t need to be the class clown or an award-winning comedian to do it. This course will give you some easy ways to use activates and humor to make your training experiences fun and engaging.

In this course, you will explore different types of games, including icebreakers, energizers, simulations, and case studies. You will also learn how to get buy-in, deal with reluctant participants, troubleshoot games, and create your own games. To top things off, we will give you four activities that you can customize and re-use in your own training sessions.

2. Developing a Training Needs Analysis: Elements Of A Training Needs Analysis

Consider training programs that you have taken in the past. Did the skills that you learned benefit your organization? Did they help you do a better job? Did you even take anything beneficial away from the training at all? A training needs analysis can help your participants answer “yes” to all of these questions, and make sure that their time (and their organization’s money) is well spent.

This course covers all the essential elements of a training needs analysis. The first step is using the ICE method to isolate problems, consult with stakeholders, and evaluate your options. Then, you can bring all of the information together into a training needs analysis that will convince readers to take action.

After you complete this Developing a Training Needs Analysis course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the value of creating a training needs analysis.
  • Apply the ICE method to assess the situation and build your training needs analysis.
  • Create a simple yet thorough training needs analysis for your organization or client.

3. Training with Visual Storytelling: Learn How To Use Storytelling To Engage The Hearts And Minds Of Your Audience

The National Center for Biotechnology Information estimates that the average human’s attention span is about eight seconds. That’s a drop of 33% over the past 15 years. For trainers and public speakers, this means that we have less time than ever to catch our audience’s attention, get them engaged, and ensure that they retain the information being shared.

In this course, you will learn how to use storytelling to engage the hearts and minds of your audience. We’ll cover the essential elements of a successful story as well as a variety of storyboarding and graphic design tools. After you complete this course, you’ll be ready to create engaging, compelling training sessions that inspire your students.

After you complete this Training with Visual Storytelling course, you will be able to:

  • Describe how storyboarding leads to better training results.
  • Apply storyboarding techniques to create a strong foundation for training.
  • Design training that uses storytelling to make it memorable, compelling, and relevant to the audience.
  • Evaluate technology tools to determine what will create the best learning experiences needed for adequate training.

4. Making Training Stick: Develop An Effective Training Style

We have all participated in training courses or workshops. Some of these have been helpful and useful in our everyday lives and others have seemed redundant and a waste of time. How often have we cheered or grumbled at being asked to participate in a training day? The good news is that all training can be useful and applicable if the trainer keeps some simple tips in mind when developing and applying training. We all learn differently, but there are some truths about learning that can be applicable to most groups and can be tweaked to fit any training session. This course will help you identify ways to make your training stickier for your students.

In this course, you’ll learn ways to help make your training workshops stickier so that the learners will retain the material better. You will familiarize yourself with strategies that can help learning to stick with the audience in an effective and meaningful way. You will learn how to keep learners focused and motivated to absorb material. Also, you will learn ways to develop an effective training style, using appropriate training aids and techniques.

After you complete this Making Training Stick course, you will be able to:

  • Familiarize yourself with strategies that can help learning to stick with the audience in an effective and meaningful way.
