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.

Expert Insights on Micro-learning and Micro-credentialing

Learning happens throughout our lives, it is not a time in life.  Micro-learning and therefore micro-credentials or stackable credentials help all learners gain recognition for the relevant knowledge, skills, and abilities they have built, regardless of where they built them.

Micro-learning is one of the hottest trends in adult continuing education and training.  But is the all the hype justified?  Is micro-learning really the answer to building competencies and improving learning?

After attending this webinar, the attendee will:

  1. Define micro-learning and micro-credentialing.
  2. Recognize issues in micro-learning and micro-credentialing that apply to adult learning.
  3. Recognize strengths and weaknesses of micro-learning and micro-credentialing.
  4. Examine trends and issues with micro-learning and micro-credentialing. 

This webinar is co-sponsored by IACET and the AAACE (American Association for Adult Continuing Education and Training.)

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

Taking a Multimedia Approach to Behavioral and Organizational Change

A trainer’s worst nightmare: your company is experiencing high turnover and all fingers point toward training. But how can you provide effective training if you’re limited to in-person, small group sessions? How do you create product training for a product your learners have never touched? You’re tasked with enacting behavioral change at an organizational level – but your learners can’t change their behavior through ILT alone. It's time to rethink your approach.

In this webinar, you will learn how to utilize the power of video, motion graphics and virtual reality to provide a complete multimedia approach to learning. You will explore a real-life case study about how one company revamped their training strategy to include ILT, video, eLearning, and VR to produce measurable results. And you’ll learn how to combine video learning, eLearning, ILT, and virtual reality, into a training program that decreases turnover and increases job safety and satisfaction.

Takeaways:

  • Identify Key Steps to Video Learning
  • Examine Best Practices for 2D and 3D video capture
  • Incorporate Mixed Reality into your Learning Strategy
  • Calculate ROI for Multimedia Development
