I want to talk a little about training and what I learned this week. Training for me from an educator’s perspective has been enlightening. As I’ve Studied for a while adult education and learning, the dots are finally connecting as to how it all relates to training and development. Training trends for adult learners as I gathered in this week’s resources, has evolved. Professionals who have to chosen to increase their knowledge in their chosen careers are choosing to seek their own professional development so to speak. Talking from personal experience, this is what I’ve done. I know that my agency is limited to who receives training and what they’re willing to pay for and how will it be an asset to our agency, so I’ve sought to take classes on my own that will help me become more diverse in teaching my learners. And of course, the expense is on me. I can bring adult learning concepts to learners that will be able to reach every learner and not just inclusive to a few. Another thing that is important is that more and more people are willing to learn, but it has to be at their convenience. I want to design curriculums that are convenient and are willing to be flexible in their learning environment. So, this is the first week, and I’m very intrigued about learning more about training and development that will allow me to better serve my learners.
