  • Abstract:
    To be successful in their training, learners need to frequently and meaningfully engage with the course content. There are many instructional strategies, and it is not always easy for course designers and instructors to find ones that match the content, the classroom limitations, and participants’ learning needs. This handbook is designed to provide instructors, project managers, subject matter experts, and instructional designers with tools and techniques to help make a course more interactive and engaging. The handbook provides background information to help users select the most appropriate option. Users will also find instructions and examples to help them replicate the strategy or tool in a course. You can choose to read this handbook from cover to cover, or you can focus in on a few tools to use in the course you are currently developing or teaching. Either way, this handbook will be easy for you to navigate and use. The handbook is divided into three main chapters. Chapter 1 is for both course designers and instructors and explains the importance of learning outcomes, how best to work with adult learners, and ways to meet learners’ needs. Chapter 2 is targeted at course designers and makes the link between training needs, learning outcomes, instructional and practice activities, and assessments. Chapter 3 is designed for instructors and provides information on and examples of instructional best practices. All of the instructional strategies and tools mentioned in chapters 1, 2, and 3 are linked to a detailed explanation in the appendix. Follow the links to learn more about the strategy or tool, including a description, its pros and cons, examples, instructions, and application ideas for instructor-led training (ILT), web-based training (WBT), and web conference training (WCT) formats. If you have followed a link to a new section, select the link at the end of the description to take you back to the previous section.
