The ASA Training Council kicked off the first in a series of webinars on subjects relating to the theme, “Train-the-Trainer.” Over 15 member companies participated inPart 1, with multiple individuals from each company joining in the learning session.
webinar, run by James Hale, founder of Path Choices, covered techniques that he
Fun and Simple Tools to Transfer Learning. The webinar focused on new ways to
train in a difficult economy as well as in a challenging learning environment -
where putting training ideas into action is easier said then done.
Council decided on the webinar format for this series, believing it would allow
more companies to participate if they didn’t have to send their trainers - who
often have other job responsibilities within the company - away for several
days and incur the expense of travel,” shares Ruth Mitchell, ASA’s liaison for
the Professional Peer Networking Councils.
the goal for the Training Council is to be a resource for trainers across the
country to discover new and cost-effective ways to educate employees. This
introduction to webinars has a two-fold benefit through the information they
learn and the experience of using a webinar to successfully train, something
they can implement in their own programs.” The Council found that through the
webinar, multiple people from the same company were able to participate,
increasing the value of the program for the company.
The council is continuing with
Part 2of the Train-the-Trainer series in November.
