Understanding the True Cost of Content Development | Content Development | Training Industry

Tiffany Crosby's insight:

In my experience, development costs are always underestimated. Even if you use existing internal or external (from an outsider provider) content, some customization is required to make it meaningful to your company in it's current environment.

Why Blooms Digital Taxonomy Matters

Why Blooms Digital Taxonomy Matters | Training | Scoop.it
Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy is a tool that can expedite this process for both experienced and novice instructional designers. It facilitates a design discussion that enables design teams to focus on using technology to facilitate learning, instead of just looking at what technology is most easily available.
Tiffany Crosby's insight:

I like this chart. I find it interesting to think about Bloom's in the digital age. For a bigger picture view of this wheel, go to http://www.wiredacademic.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/padagogy-wheel.jpg

People are biased against creative ideas, studies find | Training | Scoop.it
The next time your great idea at work elicits silence or eye rolls, you might just pity those co-workers.

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 1, 2013 10:00 AM

The link between engagement and outcomes is clearer than ever. The article also suggests the importance of managers in creating engagement. By far then the single most important thing a company can and should do is to make sure than their managers are skillful engagers. They can hire managers who can create engagement and/or train managers to engage their teams. Creating a culture that supports these practices is an important additional factor that will help insure long-term success. 

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 1, 2013 4:30 PM

"Concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times. Gallup researchers in 2012 studied the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged work units and found that those scoring in the top half on employee engagement nearly doubled their odds of success compared with those in the bottom half."

The Importance of Scheduling Nothing

The Importance of Scheduling Nothing | Training | Scoop.it

Via Daniel Watson
Tiffany Crosby's insight:

I'm also an advocate of scheduling nothing, especially soon after you've returned from a training event. Use that time to reflect back on your training and how well you've incorporated new behaviors. Use it to set goals for the upcoming week on how you will continue to grow on those new behaviors. Change takes time. Purposeful time.

Invest in time doing nothing!

John Michel's curator insight, June 19, 2013 2:19 AM

The most important reason to schedule buffers is to just catch your breath. There is no faster way to feel as though your day is not your own, and that you are no longer in control, than scheduling meetings back to back from the minute you arrive at the office until the moment you leave. I’ve felt the effects of this and seen it with colleagues. Not only is it not fun to feel this way, it’s not sustainable.

This is an important topic - and not just to librarians. Many schools will need to re-evaluate their classes to include more embedded technology & ethics skills.

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) .

A while ago I wrote about the non-negotiable traits that you want to assess for as you evaluate potential business partners or employees. It's amazing how many of these same traits also lead to success in business. I'd add character to the list but other than that, it's about the same.

Tenika Wentworth's curator insight, January 12, 12:39 PM

There are many people out in the world who strive to be successful. This article includes different aspects on how to do so. One that really caught my eye was that in order to be successful, you must do what you love and what you are truly passionate about and to have fun. If you don't love what you do as a career, how will you ever feel truly successful? Another one is tto be successful you have to be able to come up with an idea. An idea that not only serves to you but to others around you benefitting everyone.

Tiffany Crosby's insight:

The same principle that applies to coaching also applies to learning. I can generally spot an "unteachable" person early on within a training program. And no, it's not based on whether or not they want to be there or whether they are social or not. It all comes down to the attitude they display during conversations.

Tiffany Crosby's insight:

Knowing how much to present and the order in which to present it is much more art than science. You need to step back outside of your "technical expert" hat and think of how people will relate to the material. The order in which you do something is not necessarily the best order in which to have people learn it. The same concept applies to coaching and mentoring.
