Register for this Event

15-16 September 2020 | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm each day

Join The Leadership and Training Studio and Erin Fischer for a two-day, hands-on, engaging and entertaining seminar. Erin will share how she wrote 90 programs in four and a half years and still has more ideas. (As a matter of fact, she has written eight new courses in three months.) You will learn how to write participant guides, facilitator guides, identify 40 learning methods and understand why you can’t write learning objectives until the end of your course! By the end of the two days, you will have a template for writing consistently and engaging material with ease. We are excited to continue to offer this outstanding professional development opportunity in a live virtual format using Zoom Video Conferencing.

It’s time to join the Program Design School if you:  

  • Struggle writing creative curriculum year after year.
  • Need to write quickly or move past writer’s block.
  • Are trying to rehash another “values-based” course or bring life to an existing course.
  • Need a specific plan and clear steps to write consistently.
  • Need new ideas for teaching methods beyond the boring, unoriginal and overused methods.
  • Write task-related curriculum, like how to run a meeting, use Roberts Rules of Order or put together a strategic plan.
  • Write competency- or soft skills-based curriculum, like feedback, confidence or managing conflict.
  • Want to network with professionals, and leadership and education professionals from institutions and headquarters.
  • Want to learn the trends in leadership development for all types of adult learners.
  • Want to save time and money for your organization.
  • Want to receive a 75 page Program Design School Guide to support your program development.
