Train the Trainer: Course Development

 

This two and a half-day, intensive workshop is for trainers actively teaching classes for their local after attending the Train the Trainer: Teaching and Presentation Techniques class. Participants must submit a brief course description of the course they would like to develop.

What is it?

This workshop is designed for local trainers who have participated in the original Train the Trainer: Teaching and Presentation Techniques course who are conducting skills training they design themselves. Participants will build on the skills they learned in the Train the Trainer, work on the instructional design of the courses they are developing, and receive feedback and support from the instructor and the other IATSE workers in the course.

Who is it for?

It is intended for trainers who have participated in the Train the Trainer: Teaching and Presentation Techniques workshop and who are conducting craft skills training they design themselves. Trainers must have presented at least three trainings and reported these to the TTF for tracking to be eligible. Potential participants will need to submit course outlines for the course they plan to develop to their local to be submitted with the application.

Is there a cost?

The TTF is paying for the cost of three nights of room and taxes at the hotel where the training is held. We will also provide breakfast and lunch on days that class is in session. As with other courses, the TTF cannot pay for the cost of travel, meals outside of the ones provided, other incidentals, or per diem costs.

How do We apply?

Email us to request the application. Local unions nominate a trainer from their local. If space permits, you may send a second person to attend. Nominees must be IATSE workers who attended the Train the Trainer: Teaching and Presentations Techniques course and have taught at least three classes since attending the first Train the Trainer session. The designated local union officer will complete and submit one application for each trainer in their local.
