Train the trainer (ToT) is highly recommended in the changed educational scenario. There is no concept of teacher training in the modern world because there is no teacher required. The world needs no teachers.
The world needs trainers and coaches because people don’t like to be taught, they like to experience learning.
Trainer is a catalyst
A trainer is a catalyst because through the trainer, change takes place. A trainer’s main tool is training and if his training doesn’t bring change, he is not a trainer. A trainer makes his training actionable by using simulations, role plays and games, so the trainees can experience learning. He believes that telling is not training, listening is not learning – training means experience.
How people learn
Trainer has the expertise of how people learn. Learning is not simply a transfer of knowledge and information to the trainee. Learning is a process of change in a person’s understanding, knowledge, abilities from experience. Learning is not Memory: Memory is our ability to store and recall past experiences in various ways. People always learn from experience.
The New Generation
The whole idea of this new generation of students is that they have grown up in technology, and they have been labeled as a Lost Generation. Their minds are working at 100 miles an hour and as adults, we allow them to grow up with technology, but they forgot the art of sitting and listening and be able to have interpersonal communication.
Imagine: A TV Program geared towards this generation will have 95 flips or transitions pop up in one minute to maintain their interest.
Training management problems occur or if you are in a school, class control will suffer. For effective control, the trainer has to be in the leadership role rather than authoritative style. The authoritative style itself creates disciplinary problems.
The trainer and trainees relationship
Trainer-trainee relationship is based on inequality. The trainer knows or has experienced something that the trainee doesn’t know or has not experienced. A trainer can dispense training in a friendly-style but a trainer is not a friend. Trainers in any learning situation need to draw a fine line between taking an interest in their students and becoming personally involved with them. Finally, you should keep in mind the implications for the future of your relationship with your students—practical, professional, and moral.
Training is not a relationship among equals.
Train the trainer is the first step to building a future generation of people with changed behaviors.
