Welcome back

Welcome to Week 2 of Training and Development at Work: An Introduction.

At the beginning Week 1, we asked you the following big question:

Training: is it just a waste of time and money?

This week, we continue to explore this big question by examining two models for training design: instructional design system and performance-based instructional design.

We will also discuss a variety of training methods, along with their associated advantages and disadvantages.

Finally, we will explore the application of sound psychological principles to training, such as imitation, guidance, feedback and reinforcement.

Your task
