Is this course right for me?
The course is aimed at anyone planning to deliver classroom sessions as part of a learning solution. Those who are relatively new to classroom delivery will benefit most. No prior experience or technical knowledge is required.
What will I learn?
This course will enable you to:
- set out a classroom for different types of learning event;
- provide learners with all the resources they need to make the most of an event;
- use projectors and large-screen TVs to display visual aids;
- set up for sound playback;
- use flip charts, whiteboards and their electronic equivalents;
- use video cameras to make recordings of role plays and other activities;
- use audience response systems for learner interaction;
- prepare and use handouts, both electronic and hard copy;
- pack everything you need to cover every situation.
How long will it take?
Well, it all depends.
- If you’re curious about something or you need to know urgently how to carry out a task, you could get in, get what you want and get out again in less than 10 minutes.
- If what you need is a quick appreciation of the subject matter covered by the course, you could watch all the lesson videos in an hour, give or take. You’d be better off spreading this over a few days, but if an hour is all you’ve got, then go ahead and binge.
- Our courses are roughly equivalent in scope to a one or two day classroom event. If you were to spend a whole day on one of our courses, perhaps spread over a week or two, you’d be able to complete all the activities and begin applying your new skills to your work.
How does it all work?
The course is comprised of ten lessons, each of which includes a video and often a resource that you can use for on-going reference. If you complete the course, you'll receive a Skills Journey certificate.
This resource has been designed, developed and presented by the Skills Journey team, drawing upon decades of experience working with learning and development professionals across the world.
