Leveraging the Adult Learner Model in Your Staff Training Approach

Preferred registration deadline: April 27th

Lorien Carter, MSW
Associate Professor of Practice, Brown School

Whether it’s orienting people to their jobs or required trainings for compliance or skill-building professional development, most workplaces make significant investments in training their teams.  However, all too often these training approaches are designed without leveraging what is known about how adults learn new skills and retain information.

This session will enhance participants’ understanding of how adult employees typically like to be engaged.  We will discuss formal learning opportunities (through staff and HR trainings) as well as informal ones (as members of teams and departments). Participants will be engaged as adult learners to demonstrate how specific strategies can be embedded into staff training approaches and leverage the strengths that adult learners bring to the workplace and training environment.

Class size is limited to 30.
