October 7 & 14: The Trainer Academy: How to Teach in Any Environment

In partnership with the Idaho Nonprofit Center

October 7 & 14, 2020
9:00am-10:30 Pacific | Online

You may be looking for ways to turn your expertise into a training that helps nonprofit people. Or maybe you have already been delivering trainings and are wondering how to shift that curriculum into an online world. You might be someone who teaches people everyday as a consultant or coach and are wondering what you can do to make sure people are able to take action on what you need them to know.

The Trainer Academy is an online course that gives you the knowledge, skills, and tools you need to be an effective trainer (both in person and online). You will learn to design an effective workshop and how to deliver that workshop in a way that maximizes participation. You will receive materials and assignments before and after each session to give you a way to practice what you learn. You will end the series ready to deliver an effective learning experience that helps people transfer what they earn back into their work.

The Trainer Academy is designed for both novice and veteran trainers. If you are new to training, you will gain a framework to help you get started. If you have trained for a while, you will have the chance to refresh your approach and reflect on how to bring the latest in adult learning into how you deliver your content. Are you interested in presenting at conferences? This session will give you space to refine your plan towards a compelling workshop proposal.

Participants will receive:

  • Recording
  • Workbook
  • Three hours of training
