In this course we discuss both the theoretical underpinning and practical fundamentals of training design for Behavior Change.  We examine how to use group and human dynamic processes to emphasize the ‘self-renewal’ ability of the individual, facilitated movement of groups and improvement of the health and effectiveness of organizations in a sustainable way.

We start with a brief overview of theory relating to Personality and Behavior and how this links to the trainer being a facilitator of learning and the use of experiential techniques to help training delegates apply learning to their own situation.  This leads to a discussion about designing training for people led change, specifically in the areas of freedom of choice, creativity and trusting their own judgment and ability. 

This course provides a tool-kit for trainers and Learning and Development professionals to design training interventions that most effectively promote a significant learning experience that if assimilated would result in behavior change for training delegates.

This course attempts to cover too many topics in my opinion, I expected to focus solely on 'design', instead it is very theoretical. I would have liked more practical examples of trainings actually developed by the professor, with examples of how she implemented learning theories. The course could also covered blended learning, by providing of real examples of learning solutions.

This course uses a holistic approach: it covers theory, the possibilities, what's effective, and touches on perspectives the facilitator should consider for both him/herself and those learning.

I usually read my trainings. This one did not have adequate content to read. You need to listen to get the full scope of the training.

People and their behaviours can be a challenging topic, though the trainer articulated it well in an easy to listen to approach.
