Effective Training Skills. Workforce 2000 Partnership.
Enterprise State Junior Coll., AL.; MacArthur State Technical Coll., Opp, AL.
This curriculum package on effective training skills for hourly textile employees has been developed by the Workforce 2000 Partnership, a network of industries and educational institutions that provides training in communication, computation, and creative thinking to employees and supervisors in textile, apparel, and carpet industries at 15 plants in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The curriculum guide provides a quick view of all major curriculum components: job title for which the curriculum was developed; general instructional objective; overall time; and the chart which is used by reading across the columns to match the specific instructional objective with the estimated amount of time required, learning activities, resources required, and evaluation method. A closure activity reviews and assesses skills learned and may identify needs for further learning. The lesson plan explains the activities in detail. Handouts, transparencies, and pre- and posttest are provided. This module is designed to teach instructors how to teach adults and how adults learn. Objectives include the following: recognize adult learning styles and common forms of resistance to learning; explain the difference between production goals and effective instruction; apply task analysis skill to job; write measurable training objectives; develop a performance checklist to monitor trainee progress; implement a four-step method of instruction; use questions effectively; and develop training aids.
