E-Learning Magic: Explaining Complicated Procedures Simply

E-Learning Magic: Explaining Complicated Procedures Simply | Personalized Professional Development | Scoop.it
n the workplace we are often bombarded with seemingly unnecessary procedures. For example, a call center rep that has to ask the same three questions to every customer even when that customer’s problem has nothing to do with the questions. However, when a rep doesn’t ask these questions or record the answers a bigger problem is created for the manager who now can’t track vital information like sales, problems with a website or other issues. In other jobs not adhering to regular procedures can lead to injuries, lawsuits and costly mistakes.

Employees need to carry out these important tasks yet most organizations struggle to train them. This is why procedure training needs to be made real and feel relevant to students. Procedure training should always:

1) Benefit the student

2) Relieve a real problem

There are many learning strategies that can help you present a procedure in your eLearning courses

♒Background

In the last 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in the complexity of experiments and publications.... This problem is specially severe in fields where there are often attempt to integrate  experiments across different sub-disciplines and levels of complexity...

There is a great need to develop maps (simplified abstractions) of published information that could be used to decode complex research information and to guide research planning.


As a first step to tackle this problem, our laboratory developed a taxonomy for experiments and a set of algorithms to generate research maps of causal information. 

This taxonomy allows us to classify experiments in our field into a small set of distinct categories, a critical first step in the development of simplified abstractions of research findings.


The algorithms are essential for representing these experiments in causal networks (i.e., our maps).


Additionally, the free web application developed to help researchers keep track and interact with causal information in research papers.

Tech Trends 2015, Core renaissance: Deloitte | Personalized Professional Development | Scoop.it
Organizations have significant investments in their core systems, both built and bought. Beyond running the heart of the business, these assets can form the foundation for growth and new service development—building upon standardized data and automated business processes. To this end, many organizations are modernizing systems to pay down technical debt, replatforming solutions to remove barriers to scale and performance, and extending their legacy infrastructures to fuel innovative new services and offerings.

Good Professional Development Mirrors Good Teaching

Good Professional Development Mirrors Good Teaching | Personalized Professional Development | Scoop.it
“I went to a workshop on active learning, and we just sat and listened all day!”

“I attended a ‘differentiated instruction’ seminar, and we all did the same thing at the same time!”

“Why can’t we ever get professional development days that actually use good instructional practices?”

These kinds of comments, all too commonly voiced by teachers, underscore one of the greatest frustrations teachers have with professional development. Often, professional development that claims to be all about great teaching and learning doesn’t employ the very strategies it claims to promote. This can have some significant negative impacts. Teachers may question the value of the strategies being taught, feel devalued themselves, and quickly shut down. It doesn’t take long in a PD setting like this before teachers display all of the typical characteristics of disengaged learners: texting, playing games on their phones, having side conversations, and even being actively disruptive.

So, perhaps you’re a teacher leader or administrator who will be leading professional development for colleagues. Or, perhaps you are looking to hire a consultant to lead adult learning in your school or district. What are some key elements of effective professional development? Not surprisingly, they are the same kinds of qualities we hope to see employed in classrooms with students. If you are leading professional development yourself, consider how these elements might strengthen your work. If you are bringing in an outside consultant, you might ask questions about these elements.

How to tame the flood of literature

How to tame the flood of literature | Personalized Professional Development | Scoop.it

 

Recommendation services claim to help researchers keep up with the most important papers without becoming overwhelmed.

 

Casey Bergman’s daily research routine used to include checking all his e-mails and web alerts to pick out fresh papers in his field.

 

But he grew dissatisfied with table-of-contents alerts from journals, RSS (Rich Site Summary) feeds and automated e-mails from the PubMed database.

 

The flow of content was manageable, but if he left it for more than a day, “it became a burden”, he says.

 

So last year Bergman, a computational geneticist studying fruit flies (Drosophila) at the University of Manchester, UK, turned to a fresh approach: an automated Twitter account (or ‘twitterbot’) that he named FlyPapers.

 

The bot trawls PubMed and the arXiv preprint server to find papers containing the word Drosophila, and spits them out into its followers’ feeds. Bergman finds it much easier to catch up with FlyPapers popping up in his Twitter feed — and his idea has spawned around 55 twitterbots in other disciplines.

Effective Strategies for Increasing Citation Frequency - Open Access Library

Effective Strategies for Increasing Citation Frequency

Via Nader Ale Ebrahim

Nader Ale Ebrahim's curator insight, April 30, 10:39 AM

Abstract

Due to the effect of citation impact on The Higher Education (THE) world university ranking system, most of the researchers are looking for some helpful techniques to increase their citation record. This paper by reviewing the relevant articles extracts 33 different ways for increasing the citations possibilities. The results show that the article visibility has tended to receive more download and citations. This is probably the first study to collect over 30 different ways to improve the citation record. Further study is needed to explore and expand these techniques in specific fields of study in order to make the results more precisely.
