Seasoned Trainers Benefit from Train-the-Trainer Courses
Posted May 2023
In April 2023, ITLC instructors conducted two “Train-the-Trainer” (TtT) Level 1 sessions at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) in Philadelphia. TtT Level 1 covers a range of topics, including understanding the adult learner, effective instruction, and lesson planning. During the week-long session, participants had the opportunity to practice teaching through hands-on lessons and classroom-based instruction, allowing them to improve their facilitation skills. Trainees provided positive feedback in course evaluations and demonstrated a significant gain in knowledge, based on pre/post-test scores. One participant commented that the “class helped me to blow out the cobwebs and remind me of important basics,” while another observed that the class “gave my teacher brain the tune-up it needed after sitting under a tarp in the garage for six years.”
