Macro-learning to Micro-Learning – A Case Study on Transformation

Let’s face it – eLearning has been around for a while, and most companies have content “locked up” in one-hour SCORM packages, unavailable to be consumed in bite-sized pieces. We know nothing improves the performance, accuracy and safety of workers like having access to the right information at the right time, in the right length. So how do L&D professionals leverage their current learning assets for micro learning? In this case study session, we’ll take a deep dive into the strategy, process, content considerations and technology Vector Solutions used to convert hundreds of courses into tens of thousands of micro clips to provide valuable, on demand micro-learning to a mobile workforce. We’ll help you answer:

  • Is it possible to leverage our existing macro-courses, segmenting them into micro-learning?
  • How do we select macro-courses that can be segmented? Which ones contain content meaningful in a micro-learning format?
  • How do we generate metadata for micro-learning that was once part of a larger macro-course? Is there an automated way?

The Personalized Learning Model that Unlocks Learner Potential

 

In 1984, in what is known as Bloom's 2 sigma problem, Benjamin Bloom reported in the "Educational Researcher" journal his finding that the average student tutored one-to-one using mastery learning techniques performed two standard deviations better than students who learn using conventional instructional methods.

The education industry has known for over 20 years that a personalized learning approach leads to increased student learning, yet it remains largely untapped. The possibility of creating a more personalized learning environment in any school model is attainable if educators begin looking at how to customize methods of connection, motivation, and teaching. The impacts of a personalized approach extend to teachers as well, as they should be coached and guided individually to increase student learning. In 1999, Fusion Education Group started a one-to-one school model, emphasizing the importance of mastery learning and student-teacher relationships. The practices Fusion employs with students and staff can be valuable to all school models seeking to improve student learning.

During this webinar, Educators will learn:

  • to identify the impact of student-teacher relationships on student learning and how to create genuine connections.
  • to identify how to access students’ intrinsic motivation to increase classroom participation.
  • recognize the best methods for personalizing instruction to achieve mastery.
  • identify how a personalized coaching approach with teachers impacts student learning.

Career Advancement and its impact on the role of the Training and Development Professional

The success of a learning intervention or educational event is impacted by a number of persons working at various levels within a department or unit. It is important for these persons to be working at optimum and part of this is ensuring the roles within which they are functioning are apt since they are also key to determining the successful achievement of learning outcomes. This webinar intends to place more emphasis on professionals that function within Training and Development by highlighting how pursuing roles at varying levels within Training and Development (T&D) require an understanding of what various roles require coupled with self-awareness.

Objectives

At the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Outline how the responsibilities of the Training and Development professional change with career advancement .
  • Identify the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that impacted upon their decision to become Training and Development professionals.
  • Assess their professional development goals against extrinsic and intrinsic motivational factors.
  • Identify considerations that should be given to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors in pursuing career advancement.

Description

Within Training and Development T&D a substantial amount of focus is appropriately placed on the learner and their attainment of the requisite knowledge and skills subsequent to a learning event. However as important as the learner is to the process of knowledge transfer and the achievement of learning outcomes, so is the facilitator. The teaching style as well as the learning style of the facilitator also has considerable impact on the achievement of learning outcomes. Further to this, all the roles within the training and development function impact on the successful achievement of learning outcomes. It is therefore important that T & D professionals choose roles that adequately reflect their intrinsic and extrinsic needs and are equipped with an understanding of the how the role of the T&D professional changes with career advancement. The responsibilities of a Training and Development (T&D) professional are no longer to simply stand and deliver training as they are now required to possess a cadre of skills from training delivery to managing training programs. These skills are developed overtime with improved competency in any area (s) often lending itself to a desire to work at more senior levels within T&D. Other factors such as the desire for higher remuneration as well as the recognition that comes from career advancement, also impact on the decision of professionals to pursue more senior roles; T&D professionals are no different. However, careful consideration should be given to other factors such as the reason for entering the profession in the first instance coupled with fact that with more senior T & D roles, skills such as training delivery and instructional design are utilized less frequently. This webinar will utilize the ATD competency model, Maslow’s

Feedback on Feedback – Effectively Delivering and Receiving Feedback

Over the past two years, the AERE team has developed a program that assesses, teaches, monitors, and coaches employees and employers on how to effectively deliver and received feedback. The program entitled LearnFeedback is powered by a scientifically valid assessment - the Straehle Feedback Inventory. The inventory is a self-assessment that measures how an individual delivers and receives feedback. In this session, more detail will be shared on the different types of feedback such as empathetic and reactive feedback. Finally, we will discuss some tips we use in our program to help you deliver and receive feedback effectively.  

  • Define delivering and receiving feedback types
  • Distinguish between effective and non-effective feedback
  • Use tips to deliver and receiving feedback effectively
  • Assess employees on whether they deliver and receive feedback effectively

Unleash Micro-learning: Center of Excellence Concept

If your learning delivery is passive (think long, boring slide presentations), then you’re not addressing the modern worker. Today’s workforce is always on-the-go, time and attention starved. You have to change how you craft and deliver learning to your organization. You also, need create a system that allows the workforce to document and share the lessons they’re learning on a day to day basis. This is an unrealized, competitive advantage. 

At GINOSKO, we combine formal and informal learning delivered through your mobile device and scale it to your entire workforce. We design your learning journeys into manageable micro-learning lessons to address present-day challenges facing your workforce. We offer the workforce the ability to shape and engage each other through informal, peer-to-peer learning. This will unleash formal and informal learning to create the superhero workforce that begins to share lessons learned and teach one another. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Identify the current state learning and low engagement in the adult workforce 
  2. Explore mobile, micro-learning methods for engaging adult learners on a daily basis. 
  3. Discover the power of combining formal and informal learning to identify lessons learned best practices and curriculum revisions.
