INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Engineering excellence combined with detailed project management
Design is our culture
Traditional training material is often unnecessarily dense, lumping “nice to know” info with lengthy explanations of why – leading to confusion and poor results among trainees. PeopleCore pivots from this tired tradition. With our streamlined, graphic-driven, deliberate materials, “why” and “how” are clarified.
The key differentiator of PeopleCore’s approach is our renowned implementation process. After developing superior materials, we work with you to train and coach personnel on intent, utilization, behaviors, and practices. This vital step promotes and ensures a higher level of competency among supervisors and direct users alike.
Training Material Designed for How People Learn
PeopleCore’s approach focuses on results. We utilize instructional design principles to bridge the gap between knowledge and action. We also closely collaborate with on-site SMEs and use client-specific reference material to ensure that the training material applies to your specific location. This helps learners absorb and enact the training because it is practical and applicable to them and their job.
The better trained and more familiar with the process your staff is, the safer and more reliably your facility will run. The result is successful employees who are more productive on the job – and it all starts with impactful training.
We achieve practical in part by focusing on the “why” and “how” in all of our technical training material. Training needs to stress the importance of a trainee’s role to the organization as a whole, as well as understanding the big picture. Too often, traditional training is filled with theory that might be interesting but has no lasting value, so it doesn’t stick. However, if a trainee can immediately use the information in practice, their ability to access and recall information improves considerably.
The operator of the 21st century is a visual-based learner. If you want your training to have more impact, you need to appeal to the brain and how it receives and retains information. Scientific research has shown that our brains are uniquely wired to process visual data much more effectively than text. We utilize this fact by creating graphic-centered training materials. As a result, learners learn faster, have improved comprehension, and are able to recall information more easily.
Implementation is where we see the majority of our clients struggle. Training programs commonly utilize content that has been “reduced to writing,” with organizations assuming that excellent documentation will breed excellent behavior change – and results. This is not the case in the real world, where meaningful training and instruction is needed to transform documented intentions into reality.
PeopleCore will provide your company with the necessary support to deliver our material to your classroom. This includes tools such as our training guide, which is developed to provide structure for your training program. This document will guide the trainee through the material, and also serves as a sign-off sheet to document that they have completed each course. Additionally, our team will develop assessments that can be used to test knowledge and ensure learner retention. These tools, as well as PeopleCore’s team of coaches, can be utilized to create the best training structure for you.
