About this Event

About Accelerated Learning and this new Certificate program:

Accelerated Learning (AL) is a total system for speeding up and enhancing both, design and learning processes. Based on the latest brain research, it is a proven methodology to increase learning effectiveness while reducing costs and time in the process. We have all been affected by COVID-19, forcing us to move our training online. In times like these, it is important that we continue to create learner centric experiences.

The AL methodology is based on the belief that our learners are the superstars and they are in the driver's seat; as facilitators, we simply enable that process. You might be thinking "all of that is possible in a face to face session, how do you achieve that on a virtual platform". Well, that is exactly what we're offering!

The AL Certificate introduces key concepts that will help you deliver powerful sessions online and at the same time, create an interactive learning atmosphere for your participants. It is not just about adding activities to your virtual sessions, but about designing engaging learner-driven online sessions that create real impact.

You will:

a) gain a multitude of virtual training activities,

b) discover methods to create interaction,

c) adopt design strategies to make your programs learner-centric

While these methods are equally applicable when designing face to face sessions, this Certificate truly delves into the nuances of designing and delivering virtual training.

What exactly are you going to be doing?

As much as we would like to keep that a surprise, we understand (and are counting on) your curiosity to find out more! The Certificate is divided into 7 virtual sessions, each 2 hours in duration. We will be diving deep into the key foundations of the AL methodology – the AL principles and the 4 Phase AL learning cycle.

Session 1: The 8 AL Guiding Principles - July 7th 2020

Focus on: understanding the foundational pillars of the AL method with each of the 8principles being “discovered” by you the learners through different activities. This sets the tone for the learner-centric nature of the sessions and begins your introduction to the different AL virtual activities.

Session 2: Mix it Up! Using virtual tools to support AL based learning activities. - July 8th 2020

Focus on: discovering different virtual tools (Mentimeter, Jamboard, Kahoot etc.) as well as typical virtual platform functions and gaining a basic understanding of their functioning in order for you to begin adapting different face to face activities into virtual activities.

Session 3: Designing Activities for the Preparation Phase - July 14th 2020

Focus on: developing the mindset needed to design for the preparation phase of the learning cycle (thinking from the perspective of the learners rather than our own trainers’ perspective). More importantly, collaborating to develop virtual activities which can be used to arouse learner interest.

Session 4: Designing Activities for the Presentation Phase - July 15th 2020

Focus on: developing the mindset needed to design and deliver information which isn’t in a lecture format but through activities. You will work on creating/re-tweaking virtual activities which allow your learners to discover/understand concepts or theories without a lot of “lecturing” from you.

Session 5: Designing Activities for the Practice Phase - July 21st 2020

Focus on: developing the mindset to design activities and methods for your learners to integrate what they’ve learnt, during the session. The virtual activities that you will design during this session, can immediately be applied to your program designs where your learners will practice their skills/behaviours.

Session 6: Designing Activities for the Performance Phase - July 22nd 2020

Focus on: developing the mindset to create spaces and exercises for your learners to begin applying what they have learnt during your session. You will be designing virtual activities which support and drive on-the-job application of learning.

Session 7: Learner Celebration and Experience Sharing - August 5th 2020

Focus on: celebrating your success in completing the AL Certificate journey. This session is driven by all of you and based on your experiences with how you’ve applied the AL methodology in your training design and delivery. We further develop our ties to the AL community.

Timing: 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm IST (for all sessions)

We believe, as our learners, you will take this learning journey seriously. Therefore, as a prerequisite for obtaining the AL Certificate (yes, there's a certificate and it's issued by The Center for Accelerated Learning), you will need 75% attendance over the 6 sessions and submit a final assignment after session 6. The assignment will demonstrate your understanding of the AL concepts you have learnt and your application of them in your world. We will of course be there every step of the way to support you during this process.

Who is this AL Certificate for?

Anyone who designs learning interventions - trainers/facilitators, instructional designers, subject matter experts, teachers etc.
