Tuesday, November 10, 12:00 noon - 5:00 p.m.
(All times Eastern Time)
During this time of civil unrest and a global pandemic, defender and legal services agencies are exploring ways to help their staff be innovative and effective in serving their clients. Trainers are tapped to develop and teach virtual communication and advocacy, while still being responsible for teaching the advocacy basics. NLADA and NAIDE are offering Train the Trainer to provide tools, tips, and guidance to meet both old and new demands of training.
This program is specifically designed for new and experienced trainers as well as managers and upcoming leaders responsible for planning and providing training in their organizations. The training will be conducted by a diverse team of training professionals from a variety of perspectives and jurisdictions. The format of the program will include both plenary sessions and facilitated small groups for more in-depth discussion and focus on individual challenges.
- Planning short- and long-term curricula around client-centered values.
- Applying adult learning principles and learning objectives.
- Facilitating large and small groups.
- Evaluating programs, events, and individual presentations.
- Exploring how training can deliver and shape the agency culture.
When we meet, this training will divide into two tracks. If you are primarily a program planner, choose the Training Director track. If you want to improve your training skills, choose the Trainer track. Both tracks will focus on planning and training, but the emphasis of the Training Director track will be on planning curricula, while the Trainer track will focus on ways to improve your presentation skills.
Attendance at this pre-conference is limited and all participants must commit to the entire program.
