Developing-Instructional-DesignWhen training participants can relate lessons to their own job experiences, they learn and retain more at a much deeper level. Action learning strategies incorporated into lesson design and presentation ensures that learners engage in a way that lets them use their new knowledge and skills in their jobs immediately to get real, measurable results; the lessons stick.

Filled with examples of action learning techniques that readers can implement in their design and delivery, the latest book by Dr. Geri McArdle shows trainers how to:

  • Create fun and memorable activities that match participants’ needs,
    learning styles, and levels of understanding
  • Encourage learners to build on their own experiences
  • Evaluate learner mastery during the entire learning event
  • Strengthen learning transfer back on the job
  • Accurately measure post-training results


A trainer works hard to ensure lessons stick; “Instructional Design for Action Learning” provides the tools to make it happen.
