Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 27, 2014 4:59 PM

A long article that needs to be read and thought over. Something that is important to add is that teaching is more than demonstration and modeling. It includes good learning, which is practice and reflection.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, May 30, 2014 3:21 PM

Special thanks to @Ana Cristina Pratas for sharing Don Clark's original post on http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html

 

Don has shared a vast number of resources on this post ranging from a diagram showing the changes between the original and updated Blooms to ISD concept maps and instructional design toolkits.  

Here is a quote from Don's post explaining Solo Taxonomy - "...one model that might prove more useful is the Structure of Observed Learning Outcome (SOLO) taxonomy. It is a model that describes levels of increasing complexity in a learner's understanding of subjects (Biggs, Collis, 1982). It aids both trainers and learners in understanding the learning process. The model consists of five levels in the order of understanding..." - See more at: http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html#sthash.X2Mab2Ks.dpuf

We should not confuse education with learning. Learning is something that focuses on the very specific; education focuses on much broader learning which is relevant to a particular society's survival. The two intersect, but are not the same just as school is not the same as education.

The Myth Of Digital Citizenship And Why We Need To Teach It Anyway | EdReach | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it
At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

All too often, training programs are developed just for training’s sake, just to check the training box. There must be a clear business objective that a training program is attempting to solve. If the business need isn’t there, the program shouldn’t be either.

This is quite corporate business training directed, but would also apply to any teacher training scenario.

Enrico De Angelis's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:01 AM

Planning courses for a big US corporation around the world is not the same of a residential three years PhD Program.

Nevertheless, the 13 proposed questions make an interesting reference list.

Are they worth to be considered also in our european PhD Programs and their courses? I think so.

 

1. The problem we want to solve is to be clearly stated
2. The quality of the training project too ("success")
3. Who pays for the project (this is more difficult, in Academy)
4. The audience composition
5. Their attitudes and expectations (often disregarded)
6. The actual use of the transferred skills
7. How to track their learning engagement
8. How to cope with tools and practices of the audience
9. Flexibility of the training program

10. Existing content and knowledge to be leveraged
11. Resources to be provide
12. Milestones and dates
13. Budget (cost, time, and quality)

Blaire Palmer's curator insight, August 7, 2015 11:03 AM


Meetings in the business world consume so much time, cost a fortune in terms of the collective time cost in dollars of all participants, and often end without resolutions being reached.


It is far better for all concerned, and the business itself, if all meetings can be conducted in a fast and focused manner.


This excellent article, suggests that business owners should avoid running overcrowded and unproductive meetings, and it offers five tips to ensure that all future meetings are fast and focused and lead to productive outcomes.

Taking it one step further Burns proposed transforming leadership which is always in play. It is a project without end which is what education is, but school often is not.

Stefano Principato's curator insight, April 25, 2014 8:02 AM

Transformational leaders see “The big picture”, but not all the details. This can create significant implementation and operational problems. If they do not have competent people to assist with the information/data side, failure can quickly follow.
