Since 1998, Target Learning has provided on-site and online professional development and personal enrichment classes nationwide to companies, government agencies, schools, and the public (see client list). Using current research findings from educators and neuroscientists we show adults how to learn and process new information more efficiently and effectively. Specifically, we show them how to use their own personal learning and thinking style to collect, record, analyze, and apply new information quickly and accurately.
But since learning new information is only part of the equation we also show adults how to successfully communicate their knowledge to others inside and outside of the workplace.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
When adults take a class to acquire new skills, or improve their existing skills, they can feel extraordinary pressure during a 1-day class to learn and retain all the information they need. If the training program last several days, they will have more time to practice their new skills but applying new skills in a classroom is quite different than applying them in a busy work environment. And if adults face project deadlines while they are sitting in a classroom for several days, their attention will be divided between the training content and those project deadlines.
At Target Learning, every on-site training class includes our unique Extended Instruction Program. This program provides each training participant six months of unlimited online follow-up with their instructor. As a result, participants who need additional help after the training class can contact their instructor to receive customized advice based on their personal learning and thinking style, as well as their specific work situation. Our Extended Instruction Program also improves the learning efficiency of the participants since they won't feel the pressure to learn and retain everything during the on-site portion of the training.
In addition, we provide each participant with a comprehensive workbook that contains all the relevant program strategies with easy-to-apply implementation steps. See Sample Workbooks.
We do all of this because we know that adults learn better when they have some control over the learning process, and when they have the tools and support to help them develop their learning and communication skills well into the future. See Testimonials.
