- Keep up-to-date with the latest eLearning methods, design principles and delivery platforms
- The ability to develop quality material for use in facilitation, training and presentation
- Techniques and formats for developing training material – learning activities, games, exercises, examples and case studies, and eLearning
- Skills for the development of effective presentation material
- How to design and adapt material based around learner style and preference
- How to create ‘blended’ learning materials to develop cognitive domain abilities – thinking skills and knowledge awareness – combining the best of classroom training and online learning.
- Greater understanding of learning methods in the online and digital world

Participants will learn from a clear explanation of training material development skills. This is achieved by active participation in discussions and experiential exercises. Group discussion is an important element in the programme, and delegates should be prepared to share their experience and their own stories with the rest of the group. We will use video clips and case histories to illustrate and illuminate the key points.
Delegates are encouraged to bring some real-life examples of current and past training course materials, presentations and workbooks for reference and application during the training. All delegates will be asked to make presentations to the group, and to commit to a personal development plan.
This programme covers essential skills and techniques in all stages of training and learning material design. This includes selecting and creating content, visual design, integrating learning and training exercises and test. The programme also covers production methods and online design tools and software. Online learning and blended learning solutions are also an important part of the programme. Examples used are taken from HR, technical, safety and management topics.
