Keys to an Amazing Competency Based Learning Program

With the never-ending quest to do more with less, a one size fits all approach to training is losing  its luster. Organizations are demanding efficiencies that can only be fully realized by training to the gap between what the learner knows, and what they need to know. This approach to training is called competency-based learning (CBL) and in this session, the presenters will dispel myths about CBL, and provide research based best practices for a step-by-step approach to implementing a CBL program.

The presenters will guide attendees through a quality, easy to understand CBL framework using the International Association for Continuing Education and Training's new Standard for Competency Based Training. Attendees for this session should be prepared to have their paradigms about clock-hour based training challenged in order to examine an innovative way to think about CBL.

By the end of this presentation, attendees will:

  • Recognize the best conditions for applying CBT approaches.
  • Identify and apply common and best practices  in  CBT.
  • Begin the process to create a quality competency model.

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. 
  4. Recognize a Center of Excellence concept will unleash formal and informal learning for sharing lessons learned and teaching one another.

Competency-based design - it's all about the assessment!

Competency-based design focuses on the individual’s ability to demonstrate mastery of defined and measurable learning objectives.  Key to this is the inclusion of authentic assessment strategies that are meaningful and build a positive learning experience.  This session will examine a range of strategies and their use in a distance delivery mode.

The session will begin by reviewing a four-step model to develop assessments and move into how performance standards are integral to the design of authentic assessments. Performance-based assessments require the individual to demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and strategies by creating a response or a solution.  These require the individual to engage in higher-order thinking and to integrate writing and communication skills. Consequently, some performance assessments are longer and more complex than more traditional assessments. Authentic assessment comprises a variety of assessment techniques that share the following characteristics:

  1. direct measurement of skills that relate to long-term learning outcomes focused on success in the workplace;
  2. tasks that require extensive engagement and complex performance; and
  3. an analysis of the processes used to produce the response.  

We will examine several alternative assessment techniques that can be used in a distance delivery mode including argumentative essay, document-based questions, engineering design, infographic, personal narrative essay, and reflective summaries.

What are stackable credentials?

In this session, the presenters will discuss whether remote proctoring is a worthwhile pursuit for your organization. The first part of the presentation will define remote proctoring including the various features. After, the presenters will discuss various factors to consider when evaluating remote proctoring. Some of those factors include business considerations (costs, strategic alignment), customer satisfaction, quality, security, comparison to other testing modalities (test site), and technology. While discussing those factors, various pros and cons will be reviewed using real-world examples.

  • Define remote proctoring and their various features
  • Evaluate the various factors to determine whether remote protocoling is a viable solution
  • Draw upon real-world examples when considering remote proctoring
