A signature feature of all iHR training programs is our unique training methodology - Workplace Reality Theatre. Our professional actors re-enact real workplace situations, which the training participants then analyse in discussions led by an experienced facilitator. These performances occur live during each program.

Feedback shows this methodology is highly successful, with participants describing the training as “engaging”, “dynamic”, “entertaining” and “easy to understand”.

Customised Training and Instructional Design

For onsite programs iHR Australia has a flexible approach to customisation and tailoring. Re-enactments can be tailored to suit the work environment; this might include amending the scripts or language featured to reflect the setting or team culture. Your organisation’s policies can also be included and training can be modified to focus on particular objectives, specific behaviours or cultural issues.

iHR uses the ADDIE model of training program development to ensure your organisation’s objectives are met, and applies proven instructional design principles to maximise knowledge retention and transfer of learning.

Customised training allows an organisation to benefit from content and delivery targeted to participants’ level and circumstances. This approach encourages a deeper understanding of the subject matter and its context.

Blended Learning

iHR also offers blended learning solutions, featuring online training based on cognitive science principles. Our online training uses 3D animation to create engaging, interactive eLearning which complements face to face training.

A range of online programs are currently available and blended learning solutions can also be customised. Our online training production partner World Learning Hub, can modify existing courses or create new content, this could include:

  • Inclusion of organisational policies, procedures and values
  • Inclusion of company logo, additional still images, links
  • Creation of new animations, activities and assessments

There are many reasons a blended approach may be appropriate. Many organisations choose blended learning for refresher training or where it is difficult for all workers to attend face to face courses, such as where part of the workforce is based off site, in a remote location or for shift workers.
