What is this programme about?

 

Research has shown that the effectiveness of learning is founded in the learning experience.  Learning retention rates and the ability to translate learning into application can sometimes be dependent on individual learners, but the approach of the instructor also plays a significant part in the learning experience. It is important to be able to engage with students and learners in an effective way, in order for them to fully relate to the material being taught.

The Facilitation in Training (FiT™) methodology has the power to transform your mindset about training and learning. By understanding a combination of theories, models, and strategies, and incorporating various tools, techniques, and skills, you will be able to redesign your training and create interesting, interactive, and engaging learning experiences.

This two-day interactive workshop consists of lectures, presentations, learning by discovery, learning by doing, group learning, and reflective learning, and will address the three key aspects of learning: knowledge, skills, and attitudes/mindset. Over the course of the programme, you will be introduced to, and experience, the various facilitative techniques used in the (FiT™) methodology, as shown in the table below:

This programme builds upon the foundations laid in ‘Module 1/M1: Facilitate Learning Experiences for Adult Learners’ under the WSQ Advanced Certificate in Learning & Performance (ACLP), revisiting adult learning theories and instructional methods, exploring each in greater depth and in a practical context. Successful completion of this programme will also open the door to potential project opportunities with the Facilitators Network Singapore (FNS), allowing you to put this approach into action and continue to develop your skills.
