Being a successful trainer requires first being an effective communicator. Training for Today and Tomorrow: A Communication Perspective provides communication-centered research and industry-informed instruction that speaks to the knowledge and skills students need to become successful trainers.

The book combines key concepts from communication studies with examples from industry to prepare today’s students for the challenges and opportunities they will encounter in a rapidly changing field. The text includes interviews with industry professionals, information on how trainees learn, insight into incorporating inclusivity in training sessions, and an exploration of various training-related career paths students can pursue.

Each chapter opens with a case study that presents a challenge or dilemma a trainer faces on the job. Throughout the chapter, students are encouraged to help this industry professional determine how to approach the task or predicament using the skills discussed in the chapter.

Concise yet thorough, Training for Today and Tomorrow is an ideal core textbook for courses in training and development, instructional communication, and communication education.
