Training of Trainers.
Chmura, Claudette D., Ed.
Designed for use either as a self-study tool or as the basis for a five-day workshop, this curriculum package provides public sector trainers with an opportunity to develop and improve their skills in the areas of assessing training needs, designing and conducting training programs, and evaluating training programs. It contains four leader's guides and four participant's sourcebooks. The first set of guides discusses preparing a workshop, and contains checklists, sample daily schedules, and a bibliography. Examinations of the needs assessment process, learning objectives, schedules of activities for both the session and an on-site training lab, and a bibliography are included in the second set of guides. Designing and conducting training programs is the subject of the third set of guides, which describe learning theories, models, and practices and how to apply them. The final set of guides, which cover training evaluation, discusses how to assess the reliability and validity of training techniques. Each leader's guide includes step-by-step instructions for conducting the training sessions, and each participant's sourcebook contains exercises and exhibits. (MN)
