The Trainer Academy

In partnership with the Idaho Nonprofit Center

Welcome to our 2-part series on October 7 & 14, 2020. Our goal is that you complete the series with the knowledge, tools, and practice you need to design and deliver an engaging training that makes a difference.

I will add resources to this page as we go along. Please check back.

*BONUS VIDEO: I had a lot more to say about tools and how to play with time to support learning and action, so I recorded a 4 minute bonus video with new information. Only watch this if you want more! (I also wrote about this topic in my August newsletter.) How will you use a 4-quadrant approach to expand how you support your learners?

Emotion wheel (ppt slide) — I used this to hear how people are feeling quickly and collectively. I got this here. There are many options if you google “emotion wheel.” I tried to find one that was simpler. No need to overwhelm!
Power-user — By adding Power-user to your PowerPoint toolbar, you (1) have instant access to eye-catching graphics, and (2) save a ton of time with its short cuts. Note that it also has a “clean” function under FORMAT, a quick way to fix wonky fonts and graphics. I choose a design style at the start (most often using my branded colors), and then graphics come out looking coherent with that standard brand. Happy to explain more if you need help!
