Designing Effective Training
Designing effective training can be expensive so analysing the training requirements is important. Training can then be designed to successfully produce objectives, assess learners and evaluate outcomes. When producing training it is also important to consider learners and design around their needs and experience.
You will learn how to assess needs and apply this to the emergency and disaster management sector. You will critique learning objectives and produce your own examples. You will study preferences and models of learning and see how training methods support individual needs.
