Effective Training Design and Development
Description: Training and development can be described as "an educational process which involves the sharpening of skills, concepts, changing of attitude and gaining more knowledge to enhance the performance of employees". The field of adult education is characterized by a huge array of programs, agencies, and personnel working to assist adults in their learning. The nature of adults as learners and the distinguishing characteristics of the adult learning process differentiate adult education from other types of education. In concurrence with the Association of Training and Development's (ATD) conceptual framework, this course provides a rigorous study of the functions and roles of individual employee and team training and development to ensure effective performance. This course examines the role of training from a strategic perspective including planning and assessment, design and delivery, evaluation of training and integration of training with performance management.
