Do you find yourself tasked with building training but have little or no background in training design and development? Is the purpose of the training a bit vague? And does the training have to be ready for delivery yesterday? Don't panic! You can get a jump start by asking ten quick questions to help you get the maximum results from your available resources. All participants in this workshop will receive the book, The Business Side of Learning Design and Technologies by Dr. Williams van Rooij and will learn to use this book in the workshop to use the ten questions to respond to a training request. In this session, you will: 

  • Explore 10 probing questions to get started with a training request 
  • Review a simple template for collecting a few key data points around those 10 questions 
  • Examine the evaluation metrics and measures indicated by the answers to the 10 questions 
  • Discover how to present other options when the 10 questions indicate that training is not the best solution
