As online technologies have exploded into mainstream education and corporate training, the need for professionals who are highly qualified in designing, developing, implementing, and assessing instruction has increased. However, the roles and responsibilities of educational technologists have become as varied as the employers who hire them and the tools they use.

5 Big Discoveries About Leadership in 2012

5 Big Discoveries About Leadership in 2012 | learning design | Scoop.it

Bad management appears to be an epidemic, costing the economy a total of $360 billion every year in lost productivity. 65% of employees say they would take a new boss over a pay raise, and 3 out of every 4 employees say their boss is the most stressful part of their job.

 

It’s not like we’re not trying: according to the American Society for Training and Development, in 2011, U.S. firms spent about $156 billion on corporate training.

 

Against this backdrop, what have we learned in 2012 that might help us improve the quality of leadership? Here are five of the bigger findings.

(From the article): We’ve learned a lot about leadership this year – with many findings being surprisingly counter-intuitive. Let’s stop hiring the most confident, start to share more information, increase the percentage of woman at the top, and remember that leadership really is personal. Perhaps none of this is ‘new news’, but it is exciting to see the research catch up to our hunches.

2. More women increase a team’s smarts

 

3. To increase engagement, share more information

 

4. Turns out leadership really is personal

Simulations can reach Gen Y when other methods can’t | L&D

Simulations can reach Gen Y when other methods can’t | L&D | learning design | Scoop.it

Training needs, tools and solutions are constantly evolving. As a health care executive at Raytheon Professional Services, Bryan Chance has been watching these trends evolve in his industry for years. Chance and his colleagues at Raytheon Professional Services have found that simulation-based training can help employers adapt their training offerings to accommodate their new employees’ learning preferences. I interviewed him to find out what Gen Y thinks of simulation-based training and how it’s revamping corporate learning systems.

What kind of training is Gen Y looking for?

Chance: Often, Gen Y employees will say they don’t need training. What they really mean is that they’re not interested in traditional classroom training. They’re far more likely to welcome experiential, technology-based training that aligns with the mass array of media they engage with on a daily basis. These multi-modal training solutions can tap into Gen Y’s experience with everything from video games to social media, making the training experience significantly more engaging and impactful than a traditional classroom-based, instructor-led, PowerPoint-based training.

Gen Y can also benefit from training initiatives that help identify competency gaps. Simulation-based training is a great first step in opening learners’ eyes to the fact that their skill levels may not necessarily match their knowledge bases. After many individuals’ first encounters with this form of training, they are often surprised by how much they don’t know. Having memorized their textbooks does not necessarily mean they are capable of applying their education in high-pressure environments and high-consequence situations.

I often work with recent nursing and therapy graduates who have extensive classroom experience, but don’t yet possess the hands-on skills needed to effectively and safely interact with patients. Simulation-based training gives students the ability to gain a better understanding of their surroundings and improve their skills in a risk-free environment.

How else is simulation-based training different from more traditional methods?

Chance: Simulation-based training creates safe practice environments, where mistakes are learning opportunities rather than potential disasters. A common mantra in health care is “see one, do one, teach one,” implying that once you have seen a doctor or a nurse perform a procedure and performed one yourself, you are qualified to teach the next batch of learners. It’s a clever and memorable saying. Simulation training can help improve on this knowledge transfer process by creating additional opportunities to “see and do” critical skills.

Can Gen Y participate in simulation training on the go?

Chance: Many simulation solutions are mobile friendly. Gen Y is an on-demand information generation, and the fact that simulation-based training can be made available on multiple platforms makes it possible for them to access information and training programs how they want to, when they want to, and in a form that best fits their learning style.

For the most part, Gen Yers prefer consuming information in small bites. The nature of simulation-based training allows learners to segment the training curricula into manageable pieces, so they don’t have to drink from the proverbial fire hose.

Many of today’s health care simulation-based training courses still involve a classroom of learners reviewing training materials or standing around a mannequin. Simulation-based training which leverages games and avatars provides equivalent (if not significantly better) experiential learning that can be completed in an environment where the learner feels most comfortable, and at his or her preferred pace.

Of course, we don’t except to see team environments completely replaced with on-demand, virtual and mobile solutions. At Raytheon Professional Services, we would like to see is a better blend of learning that incorporates new tools that help to better reach this generation of learners. We’re not seeking to replace training mannequins; rather, we want to see training programs incorporate multiple tools in situations where each learning tool proves to be most effective. For example, inserting an IV or assisting with a birth are difficult procedures to practice on an iPad, but pre-work completed via interactive game could increase the efficiency and effectiveness of in-classroom training. A good blend of training solutions will help balance cost, convenience and effectiveness of training programs.

So Gen Y’s happy, but what about older workers? How can learning leaders make sure all generations are engaged in simulation training?

Chance: Older workers could experience a steeper learning curve dependent upon their knowledge and comfort level with technology. However, when it comes to adopting new training initiatives such as simulation-based training, I believe they will embrace it upon seeing how effective it can be.

What’s the future of simulation training?

Chance: The future of any technology depends on how the price of the technology compresses, and the same is true for simulation-based training.

At Raytheon Professional Services, we believe that in the future, simulation-based training programs will be a combination of more traditional learning methods and advanced gaming technologies.

We recently started working with a prominent teaching hospital that discovered medication errors were a leading cause of death and complications among its patients. Initially, we wondered if this was a knowledge issue – did doctors and nurses not understand how and when to deliver medications? Were administration issues at the root of the problem? Upon further inspection, we came to a very different conclusion. The nurses understood what they were supposed to do, but other factors got in the way of effectively completing the task at hand. Mistakes were made in scenarios where a visitor was asking questions, a doctor was yelling down the hall, an alert was sounding somewhere in the room, etc. The majority of these errors were performed by Gen Y/new nursing grads. We developed a simulation-based training game that walks players through the medication administration process, complete with distractions every five to 10 minutes, simulating a realistic environment. We then tested knowledge retention. The program is in beta right now and we’re already seeing some positive results.

Our goal is to leverage our knowledge base as learning experts to identify the root cause of glitches and complications and determine how we can use technology to overcome those obstacles in the most efficient and effective way possible. Moving forward, simulation-based training will be an increasingly important tool in the training industry’s arsenal as it continues to develop innovative solutions to meet training needs.
