How to Evaluate Learning: Kirkpatrick Model for the 21st Century—A Revision | Social Learning Blog

How to Evaluate Learning: Kirkpatrick Model for the 21st Century—A Revision | Social Learning Blog | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Even though many Learning and Development organizations find it a challenge to prove training’s effect beyond how learners react to the training and whether they have learned the training content, senior management and business stakeholders are more and more interested in metrics that show the bottom line.

 

According to Donald L. Kirkpatrick’s Revised “Four Levels of Evaluation” model, what we need to do is find out what success looks like in the eyes of these senior managers and stakeholders and let them define their expectations for the training program. Then we need to identify specific metrics to demonstrate and deliver on those expectations.

 

For those of you who are not familiar with the original Four Levels, this is what they are:
> Level 1. Reaction: To what degree did the learners react favorably to the training experience?
> Level 2. Learning: To what degree did the learners acquire the intended knowledge, skills, and attitudes as a result of the training?
> Level 3. Behavior: To what degree did the learners apply what they learned back on the job?
> Level 4. Results: To what degree did the targeted outcomes occur as a result of the training experience and follow-up reinforcement?" - from source: http://www.dashe.com/blog/training-development/

NOTE: Assessment and success factors are usually difficult to identify well. This article with the accompanying chart does a good job in mapping out a process for evaluating the succes factors and ratings of Instructional Design. - ghbrett

8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace

"If technology continues to evolve at the current rate, the 2015 workplace could look quite different from today's office spaces -- and may even involve less traditional office space with the rise of telecommuting. From a company's hiring process to sharing knowledge with employees, technology has the ability to change the way we all work.

 

What technology will be essential in the 2015 workplace, but doesn't exist yet?" from: http://www.huffingtonpost.com

 

NOTE: This short post has 8 thought worthy services and technology that would prove mighty helpful in this digital world that is more complex every day. I like the info for "Learning Academies to Keep Up With New Knowledge" (aka Lifelong Learning).

Instructional Design Documents

Instructional Design Documents | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"...“DesignDoc” is a formal outline of what will be developed for a course, as in an Instructional Design Document. This document can be used to map out what will be developed and is often used as an agreement of work to be done before development starts. My experience has been that every workplace has its own version, requirements, and format, but the elements are pretty consistent." -- from source: http://mvenable.wordpress.com/

 

Note: This is another posting from Dr. Venable's blog. Although it is from way back in 2010 the information is still quite relevant. She presents an extensive outline of the elements mentioned above. Plus she includes links to resources and reading materials that support her check list for developing Instructional Design projects. It is a good starting point for new instructional designers. and may provide new insights for more experienced instructional designers.
