8 Trainer’s Role as Champion Change Management Be the optimist: acknowledge the negatives but keep things on a positive note Remind users of the balance between loss and gain When opportunities present themselves, point out what is to be gained by end-users Model open-mindedness Always discuss – never dispute
9 The Process of Change Change Management Stage 1: Denial Denying, ignoring, minimizing Gather Information Find out how the change impacts you Talk with others Give yourself time Stage 2: Resistance Anxiety, anger, depression Acknowledge your feelings and loss Seek out the support you need Take care of yourself Don’t join the “whiner’s club” Stage 3: Exploration Looking for options, letting go, feeling more energetic and hopeful Identify your available options Focus on short-term goals and immediate priorities Stage 4: Commitment Focusing on a course of action, adapting to change, viewing the future with hope Set long-range goals Celebrate your new reality Prepare for the next change
10 The Process of Change Change Management The amount of time spent in each stage is unique for each person. Stages are not necessarily experienced consecutively. It is common to bounce around between the four stages.

32 Train the Trainer: Self Service Time and Labor Adult Learning Principles By the end of this section, you will be able to: Identify and describe 5 principles of adult learning. Describe at least 3 ways you can apply adult learning principles to the classroom.
33 Adult Learning Principles 1. Adults are self-directed learners. 2. Adults need to have their physiological and psychological needs met. 3. Adults bring their life experience to learning experiences. 4. Adults prefer varying styles of learning. 5. Adults need appropriate practice. Source: The Accelerated Learning Handbook. Dave Meier.
34 Adult Learning Principles Learning PrincipleExplanationClassroom Applications 1. Adults are self directed learners. Need a reason to learn. Need to know what’s in it for them. Must be ready - must have a desire to learn. Are task or problem - oriented. Clearly communicate the learning objectives and benefits of the course. Ask users about their expectations as learners. Remember you are responsible for “setting the table”; only the users can decide to “eat.” Keep content job- related.
35 Adult Learning Principles Learning PrincipleExplanationClassroom Applications 2. Adults need to have their physiological and psychological needs met. Cannot tolerate interminable sitting. Have pride and self esteem - and something real to lose. Need a “safe” environment in which to learn. Schedule an adequate number of energizing stretch breaks. Frame asking stupid questions or making mistakes as a necessary part of learning. Use praise and encouragement.
36 Adult Learning Principles Learning PrincipleExplanationClassroom Applications 3. Adults bring their life experience to learning experiences. Draw upon an accumulated wealth of knowledge. Relate new information to what they already know. May need to debate or express an opinion about new information. Acknowledge the expertise of users. Relate new business processes to old ones. Be open to and encourage questions. Respect users by listening to what they have to say.
37 Adult Learning Principles Learning PrincipleExplanationClassroom Applications 4. Adults prefer varying styles of learning. Have their own preferences and learning styles. SAVI: Somatic: moving and doing Auditory: talking and hearing Visual: observing and picturing Intellectual: problem solving and reflecting Aim for a smorgasbord; not a one-dish meal. Integrate presentation with practice. Encourage learners to talk about what they’ve learned. Make learning visual with process flows, etc. Encourage users to think about how to apply new learning on the job.
38 Adult Learning Principles Learning PrincipleExplanationClassroom Applications 5. Adults need appropriate practice. Need hands-on, experiential opportunities. Need practice to be real-world oriented. Need feedback about how they are doing. Need a chance to experience success. Don’t just show and tell. Use relevant scenarios and examples. Help users troubleshoot what they are doing wrong.
39 Adults Need Appropriate Practice Adult Learning Principles We remember: 10% of what we READ 20% of what we HEAR 30% of what we SEE 50% of what we SEE and HEAR 80% of what we SAY 90% of what we SAY and DO Source: Instructional Design for Web-Based Training. Dave Arch, The Bob Pike Group
