Adult Learning Module 1: Delivery Skills

In this module, participants will become well equipped to deliver pre-designed curriculums. The module discusses trainer competencies, adult learning basics, and facilitation skills. It also considers the impact of culture, communication, and presence on training effectiveness. The module design also includes a Personal Development Plan (PDP) built into each section to enhance the transfer of learning and encourage self-reflection.

This module is offered as a daylong, in-person course (6 clock hours Develop-approved), and it is also offered in a blended online design (8 clock hours Develop-approved) featuring readings, discussion boards, and reflection assignments along with live Zoom sessions.
