Please respond to all questions, one question at a time. Indicate the topic in the title of your response, for example: Topic # 1 (option 1 or 2) or Topic # 2 and reply to at least 2 classmates per topic. Remember to use at least two resources from the class.
Topic #1 – Training Objectives (Option 1)
Why are training objectives so critical to effective training and to the course design? How are they relevant to the (1) instructors, (2) learners, and (3) course designers? Be sure to use at least two resources from the class.
Topic #1 – Training Objectives (Option 2)
Conduct an online search for a workplace training course (not a university course) that states the intended learning objectives. (1) Copy and paste the link and the learning objectives into the discussion area. (2) Discuss how the learning/training objectives and outcomes are presented to their potential audience. (3) Critique how clearly (or not) the training objectives and outcomes are articulated. (4) What else would you want to know before registering to take this training? Be sure to use at least one resources from the class.
Topic #2 – Compare and Contrast Technology-based to Face-to-Face Training (Required)
As many organizations have increased remote workers due to the Coronavirus pandemic, these organizations have implemented more technology-based learning for their workforce. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages between technology-based approaches (such as Zoom, Skype, or other multimedia) training with in-person, face-to-face training for employees. As a designer, what learner/audience factors would you consider when selecting each of these delivery methods? What has been your experience with conducting these two kinds of employee training (F2F and Virtual)? Be sure to use at least two resources from the class.
