The A-E Professional Development Model was developed by Honey Shelton and is based on her 30 years of experience with adult learning and expertise on training retention. The model identifies five competencies that guide trainers during the entire training process. Users of the model will become keenly aware that the goal is for the learner to learn and not for the trainer to train. Using the model ensures that trainee leave the training session with knowledge, skill and motivation that translates into meaningful results.
Uncover problem areas, establish the rationale and benefits, solicit input. Consider geographical, budgetary and time constraints.
Establish learning objectives, engineer a flow for the training program, onboard subject matter experts, and resource content.
Design the right learning tools that complement the content and target the learning objectives. Incorporate engagement techniques to maximize learning.
Fine-tune timing, staging, learner engagement. Learn to take control of the room and anticipate challenges. Display confidence, interest, and personality.
Circle back to the learning objectives and the primary stakeholders. Solicit feedback and ensure the training translated into on-the-job results.
Shift the emphasis from training to learning
Our experts will demonstrate how to make training materials promote involvement and become more engaging. Participants will become keenly aware that the materials must compliment the speaker. Trainers don’t have to tell attendees everything they know. Rather they must find avenues for the attendee to leave a training program with the skill and motivation to apply what they learned.
