WI Training Professional

This nine hour course incorporates the art and the science of training all early childhood and youth professionals. To address the science of designing and implementing trainings, you learn how to utilize a framework for organizing content as well as gain an understanding of how adults learn in an environment that is engaging and interactive. Training is also an art – the art of knowing how and when to re-energize your audience or how to handle the participants who are disengaged. We explore active learning strategies designed to engage adult learners. Finally, you complete an Inventory of Practice that infuses strategies learned in the course as well as submit a reflection of your training practices and receive feedback from the course instructor.
