Skill Building Learning Lab


Competencies Addressed: 660-05-001, 660-05-002, 660-05-004


This E-based learning lab focuses specifically on application back on the job. We explore how TOL is incorporated into your curricula and help you find ways to promote job application in content you currently train. We will discuss how to manage the diverse learners who may use training content back on the job; identify transfer assessment and intervention strategies. In addition to e-based learning lab, you will be offered a one-hour telecoaching session. One month later we will ask you to submit revised content outline/curriculum demonstrating improvements. The goal of this E-learning lab is to strengthen your ability to develop and implement workshops that facilitate trainee's application of newly learned skills. The learning lab is designed to:

  • Learn new ideas through an exchange of information
  • Practice and apply specific skill building and transfer strategies
  • Strengthen existing training designs to enhance efforts to support skill development and transfer of learning.

The learning lab includes one two-hour E-learning session and a one-hour coaching session between sessions.



Preference will be given to trainers who have attended workshops offered in the Training of Trainer (TOT) series; have content outlines and who have had experience offering trainings to the OCWTP constituents.
