We know that you have spent many hours working hard on learning how to become a more effective trainer and we greatly appreciate all the hard work and effort that you put in during the process.

We hope that your process was smooth and that you are excited to become a trainer and share your knowledge with the Early Childhood Education field.

FET 11: Transfer of Learning Spring 2020

When the training is over, it is not really over! This section of FET is going to explore how participants and trainers move beyond the training setting to more completely fulfill the impact that effective training is to have – which is to ‘lead to a change in behavior that provides improved quality of services to children and families.’ This transfer is commonly referred to as the Transfer of Learning.

Effective Training: instructional experiences designed to develop new knowledge, skills and behaviors that are expected to be applied immediately upon or within a short period of time after arrival on or returning to the job.

Transfer of Learning: the intentional and ongoing application of knowledge and implementation of skills and behaviors in the workplace, gained in the training session’s learning experiences.

If trainers design an effective training that includes activities to support the transfer of learning, and participants follow through back in the workplace, the end result is:

  • More involvement from the director.
  • Lasting change in behavior of the staff.
  • Improved outcomes for children and families.

Step 1 – Who?

Step 2 – Why?

Step 3 – When?

Step 4 – Where?

Step 5 – What For?

Step 6 – What?

Step 7 – How?

Each step in developing a training plan asks a question that focuses on an important part of the planning process.  By the end of FET: Training Design you will be familiar with all 7 steps.

FET 2: Effective Trainers and Training Spring 2020

To be an effective trainer, one must know not only the specific content that training participants have signed up to learn, but also understand how the human brain is structured as well as how it develops from birth to adulthood and works to acquire, store, and use new information that it receives.

One must apply information about how these structures and processes impact adult learners. Our goal is to create optimal conditions for adult learning that create changes in workplace behavior to improve outcomes for children and families in early care and education settings.

FET 1: FET and Trainer Credential Overview Spring 2020

Welcome to the Fundamentals of Effective Training (FET)!

FET is a hybrid training that consists of several sections of content online and one day of face-to-face training. These sections must be completed in order as this training is sequential, building on content from each previous section. The learning management system is set up to let you progress to the next section once you have completed the necessary prior assignment. FET is designed for flexibility, allowing you to work as your schedule permits and saving your work as you go.

However, it is important to start working through the courses as soon as they open and complete by the designated due date. This will allow you to pace yourself and move through the content at a comfortable rate. The time it takes to complete each course may vary for each participant due to previous experience with the content and/or their level of comfort with online training.

Each Course in FET will have a ‘Course Content’ table below its home page. Please start each course by clicking the first lesson.

Beyond Fundamentals: Putting FET to Work Copy

Putting FET to Work is an online learning experience that helps you design a training plan on a topic of your choosing. Upon completion, you will have a new, custom training session that you can begin training on immediately.
