Training Needs Assesment

Different organizations require different approaches to training based on organizational type, mission, and structure; the target group; and specific training objectives. For this reason, a template and specific organizational information are not provided. You are encouraged to determine training needs and to design a training plan and structure that fit your chosen organization (one with which you are familiar).

Focus on a particular issue, goal, and target group (managers, specific department, new employees) so that the authentic assessment will be manageable in the eight-week timeframe. Your scope may be that of an entire training program or that of a single workshop. Note that a comprehensive training plan for a single workshop is better for the purposes of this course than a less perfect plan of larger scope.

Position yourself as a developer, instructional designer, or director of training for the organization of your choice, real or fictitious. The assignments will guide you in the sequential development of a specific training plan for your chosen organization, and will follow the sequence in the textbook, discussions, and readings.
