Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective

Try This One Phrase to Make Feedback 40% More Effective | Learning | Scoop.it

Employees deserve feedback. So we give it--sometimes with great results, sometimes not so much.

But there's one phrase you can use that will instantly improve the impact of the feedback you give--whether the actual feedback is positive or negative.

The following comes from Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code (one of the few books I actually give to friends) and The Little Book of Talent (a book I've written about before) and ablog about performance improvement that belongs on your must-read list.

Elizabeth Bowden's insight:

"

I'm giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them.

That's it: just 19 words. But those words are powerful because they are not really feedback. They're a signal that creates something more powerful: a sense of belonging and connection.

Looking closer, the phrase contains several distinct signals:

1)    You are part of this group.

2)    This group is special; we have higher standards here.

3)    I believe you can reach those standards."

Ed tech trends to watch out for in 2017 | Learning | Scoop.it
The new year has only just started and headlines are already awash with the latest news and rumours of how technology will change our lives in 2017.

One sector set to undergo vast change in the near future is education, with artificial intelligence and virtual reality coming closer to mass market breakthrough, and the continuing evolution of learning resources to online and ‘mobile first’ platforms.

But what does the immediate future hold for education technology, and what are we most likely to see make a breakthrough in the coming 12 months?

"Tools and skills are easy-to-fill buckets, but meta-competencies of learning to learn and working in digital networks take significant time, effort, and support to fill. A long-term strategy to support these meta-competencies is lacking in many organizations today. Everyone wants a quick fix. Projects are designed around clear short-term deliverables. Few measure competencies for the long term."

My favorite quote from this issue: “Training (any mode) does not guarantee learning, and learning does not guarantee performance.”

Does the following sound familiar? 
"Here's how it usually plays out- a manager has a problem and it's gnarly. Not only does s/he not know what to do about it, but also doesn't have the capacity or time. Let's call Training! Throw the issue over the cubicle and make sure it lands on another scapegoat- Training is the perfect candidate. Best case, the training works. Worst case, we blame Training for not working."

Best advice in this issue: “Don't start until all stakeholders have agreed to the metrics and how / when they will be measured.”

Do Quizzes Improve Student Learning? A Look at the Evidence

Do Quizzes Improve Student Learning? A Look at the Evidence | Learning | Scoop.it
Recently I’ve been trying to locate the evidence that supports quizzing, wondering if it merits the evidence-based label. Tracking down this evidence in our discipline-based research is challenging because although quizzing has been studied across our disciplines, it’s not easily searchable. My collection of studies is good, but I know it’s not complete. As you might suspect, the results are mixed; they are more positive than negative, but still, a significant number of researchers don’t find that quizzes affect learning outcomes.

It's easy to create time saving quizzes in the online teaching environment.  Quizzes may help you check for understanding.  Quizzes may provide a 'guide' to the reading that keeps students accountable.

 

However,  do quizzes really improve student learning?

 

This article from Maryellen Weimer, PhD will help you understand the question.

4 Ways Being An Ambivert Has Helped Me As A Leader

4 Ways Being An Ambivert  Has Helped Me As A Leader | Learning | Scoop.it

Advantages of Being an Ambivert

When you understand what it's like to be both an extrovert and an introvert, it can help you relate to the people you work with better. Especially, if you are in a leadership position.  Here are the ways I've used being an ambivert to my advantage.

 

1) I know when to give introverts time to collect their thoughts. Introverts aren't comfortable being put on the spot. They appreciate time to contemplate and then respond. I allow my introverted coworkers ample time to review and come to their own conclusions so they can feel comfortable articulating their ideas and responses.

 

2) I know when to give extroverts the opportunity to speak their mind. Extroverts want to openly contribute. They are energized by speaking and engaging with others. I create opportunities for my extroverted coworkers to talk and share their thoughts and feelings so they can be heard.

 

3) I can sense when an extrovert is overwhelming an introvert. When an extrovert is spending too much time talking, it can be a major distraction for the introvert. There are times when I need to step in and create opportunities for the introvert to have some quiet time to calm his or her brain.
