By Jack GordonThe author includes more than one hundred learning designs that target personal and professional growth and development. The experiences are organized according to the level of participant involvement, beginning with relatively low-risk activities, and progressing to highly involving exercises. With the emphasis on individual development, there is no requirement that learners work together on the same team or for the same organization. Consequently, these designs are as much at home in the consultant’s toolkit as they are on the shelf of the in-house training professional. The book includes more than 100 ready-to-use training designs with clearly-stated outcomes. It offers robust and proven instructional-design principles to help create structured experiences including a section with targeted exercises that promote facilitator growth and development.
