Is it Time to Train, or to Present?

October 26, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

The RIPRC will be offering a training in October called Is it Time to Train, or to Present?. This training is scheduled to be held virtually on October 26th, 2021 from 10:30-12:30 PM EST. You do not want to miss this one!

Description: This session focuses on two tools of training design: SMART learning objectives and the experiential learning cycle. We’ll use these tools to decide if it’s appropriate to help participants gain new skills and knowledge through training, or if sharing information is the answer to the problem. The session will be interactive using demonstrations, vignettes and other techniques to explore the difference between training and presenting. Participants should leave with a deeper understanding of good practices in adult learning.

Facilitator: Beth Gragg has made a name for herself as a facilitator and thought-leader in designing and carrying out programs that allow people to learn (and retain) new skills, talk about difficult issues and resolve problems. Having grown up in Latin America and worked for more than two decades in the U.S., Asia, Africa and the former Soviet Union, she is finely tuned to the ways in which culture, language and status affect how people work together. Beth has degrees in History and Psychology and a Master’s in International Administration, with a focus on cross-cultural training. She is above all a practical learner — her Tools from the Field: Participant-Centered Techniques for More Effective Training has served as a textbook for adult education programs in two universities and in dozens of training of trainers programs around the world. It has been translated into French, Arabic and Russian.
