5 Time-Saving Hacks for Trainers

Time Saving Hacks Help Trainers

If there’s one thing all trainers and instructional designers have in common, it’s that there’s not enough time in the day to get everything done. Whether you’re on an under-resourced and under-staffed team placating the many demands of business units or running your own training business with multiple clients to satisfy, you need to find extra minutes where they don’t exist.

That’s why we put together this (short) list of time-saving hacks so that you can do your job more efficiently:

1. Google Smarter

It turns out that there is such a thing as a stupid question. Enter searches more strategically, and Google will give you better answers. Find out how here.

2. Use One File for Everything

Don’t waste your time updating  slides, participant workbooks, leader guides, and supplemental materials separately. Instead, you can collate all of those materials into one comprehensive PowerPoint.

3. Format Your Doc Once

Save time by formatting your Word document just once and saving it to Quick Styles. That way, every time you open up a new document, you can use the same formatting as before. Here is a quick tutorial.

4. Take Advantage of Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts make it easy to execute the same command with fewer clicks. You can create your own custom shortcuts that will make sense to you. Learn how to do it in Word or Camtasia.
