Chapter 1 – How Adults Learn
The most frustrating moment in a new job is when someone starts orienting you to the workplace without knowing how you like to learn and without knowing what it is that you know. In this session, we will explore what makes training adults different from how we would work with children. We will also explore the different learning style preferences and to train people based on their level of expertise. Determining these few factors can accelerate or greatly slow the learning curve and assimilation in the new work environment. Upon completion of this session, you will learn what types of questions to ask the new employee/co-worker to ensure a smoother transition into the workplace.
