Skills for journalists in print and digital media.

Best book on training

leave a comment »

The single best book for anyone doing adult training, in my view, is Mel Silberman’s Active Training. He follows the entire process from needs assessment, learning objectives, curriculum design, onActive Training to presentation and transfer of learning. The book mixes clear theory with specific tips, like room arrangements or speaking styles. Other books may go deeper into specific topics, but this one gives any trainer an excellent starting point. Silberman has several other books (101 Ways to Make Training Active; The Consultant’s Toolkit; The Consultant’s Big Book of Reproducible Surveys and Questionnaires), training modules, and a web site.

What books related to training, digital media, people or other topics would you recommend?
