According to the Association for Talent Development, the global market for training and development topped $370.3 billion worldwide with $169.4 billion in the US alone. A new communication course, CMM430, Training and Development, introduces you to the basics of this field and the place communication has in it. The course focuses on creating face-to-face and eLearning training programs. Using a project-focused approach with actual clients, students will craft actual training and development interventions from the ground up. Students will learn how to juggle multiple projects using basic project management techniques that can apply to both school/personal projects and professional ones.
The three credit course is taught by Jason Wrench as a hybrid course, with in-person instruction on Tuesdays from 5 PM – 6:15 PM and the rest of the work online. There are no prerequisites for this course.
