Train the Trainer
How can I tpass on my knowledge and expertise to other people?
In our knowledge-based society, life-long learning is one of the key challenges. Long gone are the days when we first studied at schools and universities and after that worked until our retirement. Learning skills are therefore a key ability in all sectors of our society. But whom are we going to learn from? And how do you pass on your knowledge and experience?
The typical answers are PowerPoint presentations, verbal explanations, and written handouts, but in reality these forms of “teaching” are outdated and do not take advantage of our most important learning skills. So what then would be a contemporary teaching model? And how do you teach grown-ups in an efficient way?
In recent years our understanding of the human brain and the way it takes in and organises information has made giant leaps. We no longer think of the brain just as a massive hard disk that stores the data that we feed it, but we have come to understand it as a complex neural network that actively organises information in an associative way. In order to learn efficiently we need to constantly reorganise, apply and evaluate our knowledge. Andragogy (Pedagogy for adults) needs to activate previously acquired knowledge and link and compare it to the new information provided.
Our train the trainer courses therefore focus on the mindset and methodology of modern adult education.
