A Practical Approach to Training Adults is an engaging and powerful workshop that covers current and traditional adult learning theories and practical instructional design and delivery strategies and techniques. Taught by our IACET commissioners, this workshop will provide learners with foundational knowledge, tools, and techniques to immediately enhance their unique experiences, expand their abilities to deliver quality learning events, and produce a sound return on investment. 

This workshop content uniquely aligns with the ANSI/IACET 1-2018 Standard for Continuing Education and Training. It also prepares instructors and CE/T professionals to support their organizations’ accreditation efforts by providing high-quality learning experiences and programs.

Learners will have opportunities to immediately apply concepts while completing a training plan and presentation "capstone" project.
