First Instructional Design Post

 

Seeing as this is my first attempt at blogging, I will see how everything goes from here. I am new into the instructional design field and I am just now taking my first steps into developing a course for welding. This will be an accelerated 12 week course offered 4 nights a week for 4 hours a night that will encompass oxy-fuel, plasma, and carbon arc cutting, as well as some tape measure reading, blueprint reading, and finally some GMAW welding with a certification test at the end. We hope to get this program up and running by the spring of the upcoming year and have a minimum of 10 students enrolled, and when all is said and done, get these people a job with the training we have provided.
I now move to the assigned work that is due for my instructional design class where I am shooting for a Master’s degree in Instructional Design with a focus on Technology and Performance Improvement. The internet time blog was more of an unorganized bunch of randomness that I found rather thrown together and too busy for me to actually focus on and gather anything of substance from. I know I am really in no position to criticize someone else’s work, but this is not what I imagined a blog posting to look like.
The wordpress on instructional design is well laid out and the postings are very informative and speak to me as what to do and what not to do when performing the art of instructional design. I like how each post is headed up with things like Designing with audio, visuals, and text. This is what I need to know as a future designer, to keep from being a boring mundane person who creates cookie cutter lessons and never really goes anywhere in the field. I look at things like this to help me grow as a designer and become the best that I can possibly be as an educator and curriculum designer.
The last blog site infed.org is really informative, this guy compares teaching and learning styles from the 1970’s to present day stuff, and it is wonderfully laid out and easy to follow. Everything on this site just flows and pulls you right in to read more and at the same time inspire you to want to be more.
This is me Jarrod Craven in the picture here, doing a GTAW welding demonstration for one of my welding classes that was getting started on this welding process. I love welding and I have been a welder now for 16 years, and an educator for 2 years. I am currently a Certified Welding Inspector recognized through the American Welding Society, Senior Test Supervisor for my shop, and Division Director for Welding, AC&R, and Small Engine Repair.

EDUC-6130 Program Evaluation Jarrod Craven Walden University

On this program the California Social Work Education Center is the owner of this program, and the California Macro Evaluation Subcommittee of the Statewide Training and Education Committee manages the program for training evaluation. The curriculum development oversight group develops the standards and processes for the curriculum, and from there each time training is provided a standardized evaluation form is used.

This program is a child welfare training evaluation and strategic plan for assessing the child welfare training for personnel within the California Department of Social Services. This report covers, the need and requirements of child welfare training evaluation in California, the structure and processes for development of the strategic plan. It also addresses the rationale for the plan, the specific provisions, including tasks, timeframes, and the progress on implementing that plan. This is developed to, assess and report the effectiveness of the training so that improvements can be made if necessary.

A framework for following and announcing all case manager finish of Core Training. Quality affirmation for the improvement and conveyance of amended Core Training in five substance territories. Advancement and usage of information testing for five substance zones of Core Training. Advancement and use of aptitudes appraisal in one region of substance of Core Training. Appraisal of the adequacy of coaching as a strategy to expand exchange of learning for members in Core Training. The discoveries from this assessment will advise the advancement of the supervisory Common Core Training. Examination of information at numerous levels of assessment so as to assemble a “chain of confirmation” about preparing adequacy keeping in mind the end goal to answer wide inquiries regarding the effect of preparing on accomplishment of organization and customer results.( Calswec, 2004)

There will be information about adequacy of preparing at different levels (a chain of confirmation) with the goal that the general inquiry regarding the viability of preparing can be better tended to. Information about preparing viability will be founded on thorough assessment plans. Educational modules authors and mentors will have information concentrated on particular parts of preparing, taking into account focused on corrections of material and techniques for conveyance. Since in California youngster welfare preparing is created and additionally conveyed by different preparing substances (RTAs/IUC, CalSWEC, regions), there are numerous varieties of preparing. Assessment gives an institutionalized procedure to efficient survey and assessment of these distinctive methodologies. (Calswec, 2004)

What issues were identified as a result of the evaluation? (Outcomes of the program evaluation)

Students were presented to coursework on the tyke abuse ID skills. The course was content legitimate and tended to the skills at the proper expansiveness and profundity. Students found the course significant and valuable. Students learned particular information expected to distinguish youngster abuse (e.g., the legitimate meanings of mishandle and disregard, sorts of consumes and breaks related with abuse and those related with mishaps). Students started to ace vital abilities, for example, having the capacity to: Recognize different sorts of outer wounds (cigarette consumes, rope marks, sprinkle consumes) from slides. Perceive basic pointer bunches from composed case situations (e.g., kid practices related with sexual manhandle). Look at a kid for wounds. Students exchange this information and aptitude to their occupations (e.g., effectively recognizing sorts of harms, precisely clarifying restorative reports of wounds, making judgments about kid abuse in view of depictions of kid practices and physical confirmation). Customers accomplish better results (e.g. kids get restorative care when required). Since the interceding factors are not controlled, contending clarifications for learner execution are as yet conceivable. For instance: more laborers might be precisely distinguishing youngster abuse in light of the fact that a specific administrator underlines that as opposed to in light of the fact that they found out about it in preparing as well as customers may accomplish better or more regrettable results for some reasons inconsequential to preparing.

I believe this is a summative evaluation based on the fact that the focus is on the outcome of the program rather than a formative evaluation which is based on the worth of a program while the program activities are forming. In this instance this was an external program evaluator, contractors to CalSWEC for Child Welfare Training Evaluation.

This analysis of this case study will help me in planning my own program evaluation or in assisting an external Program Evaluator by giving me the experience needed to conduct this type of evaluation on my own. With this I will have the ability to start my own analysis, and not feel overwhelmed without knowing where to start. I feel getting thrown to the wolves so to speak in terms of being in class and having to do these really is a confidence booster once the task is completed. I know at first its hitting you in the face like WHOA! But after I get started and chip away at it, I see that it is not such a monster after all.

ORI 105 Online Orientation and Student Success is an orientation to the world of online learning and allows the students to address any learning gaps that exist in their readiness for success in online learning. This course is open to first semester students at Wallace Community College, and provides a wonderful learning experience for first time online learners. This course introduces the students to our technologies, communication tools, and learning processes that are used in the online classroom. Students will: (1) be introduced to the differences in online and traditional learning; (2) be able to identify their own individual learning styles also, figure out what adjustments, assuming any, might be required to prevail in an online course; (3) survey the attributes of successful online learners; (4) figure out how to use the huge assets of the Internet to encourage learning; and (5) survey their own potential as an online student in relationship to these issues.

There has been lots of research and writing which proposes that dropout rates for online courses have a tendency to be fundamentally higher than the dropout rates for customary face-to-face courses. The purposes behind these outcomes regularly incorporate at least one of the accompanying:

 

  1. numerous students taking their first online course need adequate PC abilities;

 

  1. numerous students are relative newcomers to the Internet;

 

  1. some first-time online students have negligible or no past involvement with incorporating innovation with human cooperation keeping in mind the end goal to convey successfully;

 

  1. numerous students who select in an online course do as such without having any approach to assess whether this learning condition is fitting for their learning style.

 

This assessment has been intended to decide the adequacy of ORI 105 Online Orientation and Student Success for getting students ready for accomplishment in the online classroom. The assessment tries to address inquiries from various partners, including understudies, educators, and chairmen at the college.

Proposal of five evaluation questions that determine specifically what my program evaluation is going to answer.

The five following questions will provide some information for my program evaluation on the ORI105 Online Orientation and Student Success Evaluation Plan.

  1. What is the reasoning behind the development of this course?

2. What types of students participate in the class?

3. What are the intended objectives?

4. What is the intended outcome of the course?

5. What are the benefits of this course for the students?

The rationale for selecting the 5 questions above are due to my readings the past few weeks have pointed out that in Fitzpatrick’s writings (Fitzpatrick, et al. 2010) show that only a few select questions can be answered by one particular method. However, if only one method tends to answer all of the questions posed, then it is up to the evaluator to select that single method of evaluation.

                        Clarify what is not being evaluated and why it should not be

     The cost of the class is not going to be evaluated, due to the fact that it is a required class, and a lot of students that get their GED through our workforce development program get this class as their free class for passing their GED.

Identify what standards are reflected in the choice of evaluation questions      The standards that are reflected in the choosing of evaluation questions comes from (F2) practical procedures, (F4) Resource Use, and (A3) Reliable Information. (Fitzpatrick, et al. 2010). ]

Identify which stakeholders should be involved in determining evaluation questions and explain why you think so. Explain what the role of the stakeholder should be in determining the evaluative criteria.

     The stakeholders that should be included in the choosing of evaluation questions are the instructors, school administrators, class participants, and administrators with expertise in giving orientation classes to students. The role of the stakeholders in determining the criteria are being in constant contact and communication with each other, as well as the students in the class. With communication being an important factor it can help stakeholders identify areas where a program improves or whether it needs further monitoring.

Evaluation Model Advantages Disadvantages
 

EXPERTISE AND CONSUMER-ORIENTED APPROACHES

 

(Fitzpatrick, J., Sanders, J., & Worthen, B. (2010)  pgs. 142 – 149.

Evaluation criteria are detailed and are assumed to be valued by the consumer.

 

Can be used to evaluate products in various stages of development.

 

Evaluations can incorporate the partners and the end users.

 

 

Extensively used by government agencies and independent consumer companies.

 

Scriven’s checklists account for needs, side effects, process, support for users, cost, and outcomes of performance.

 

Emphasize the central role of expert judgment, experience, and human wisdom.

 

Can provide efficient and effective recommendations based on expert evaluators.

 

Identification of evaluation criteria can be quite difficult.

 

Stage of development unclear and may skew evaluation findings.

 

Differences of opinions can cloud fact-finding or create a bias during the evaluation.

 

Not thoroughly discussed by professional evaluators.

 

The evaluation process can be confined to the program outcome.

 

 

Requires careful consideration into the types of experts needed to perform the evaluations.

 

Presumed expertise of experts can be a potential weakness in the evaluation.

 

 

PROGRAM-ORIENTED EVALUATION APPROACHES

 

(Fitzpatrick, J., Sanders, J., & Worthen, B. (2010   pgs. 153 – 169).

The reasons for a portion of the exercises are determined, and afterward the evaluation concentrates on the degree to which those reasons, or destinations, are accomplished.

 

Numerous people have added to the development of this approach.

 

Easy to use since it rotates around the achievement or disappointment of the program goals.

The evaluation needs clear and exact targets and a reasonable and quantifiable stopping point.

 

 

 

Numerous forms of this approach.

 

 

Narrow minded concentration on targets and their estimation.

 

Neglects program portrayal; the need to pick up a comprehension of the setting in which the program works and the impacts of that setting on program achievement or disappointment.

 

Distorts the intricacy of program conveyance and setting.

 

DECISION-ORIENTED EVALUATION APPROACHES

 

(Fitzpatrick, J., Sanders, J., & Worthen, B. (2010)  pgs. 172 – 188)

Presents data to aid basic leadership.

 

 

Concentrates on directors and their needs.

 

 

 

Single way toward finishing program assessment.

 

 

 

 

 

Simple to take after process concentrating on making proposals for leaders.

Tend to disregard partners with less power.

 

Evaluators could be depicted as “employed weapons” that serve just the foundation.

 

Evaluators might be not able react to inquiries or issues that might be noteworthy – even basic – yet that conflict with or possibly don’t coordinate the worries and inquiries of the chief who is the essential gathering of people.

 

Requires the choices, the program, and its setting will stay stable and un-evolving.

 

PARTICIPANT-ORIENTED EVALUATION APPROACHES

 

(Fitzpatrick, J., Sanders, J., & Worthen, B. (2010) pgs. 189 – 230)

Heavily involve stakeholders in the evaluation process.

 

 

 

 

Evaluators are trained in research methods.

Evaluators have to balance the advantages of undertaking a participatory approach in each new setting, considering the nature of the program, the organization, and the potential stakeholders to involve.

 

Rely on the evaluator’s abilities versus a set process.

 

The feasibility, or manageability, of implementing a successful participative study.

 

The credibility of the results to those who do not participate in the process. Credibility of results without full participation.

 

Relies on the competence of stakeholders to perform the tasks that some approaches call for.

Explain your choice of model for your program evaluation: In my opinion I feel that the expertise and consumer oriented approaches, due to this being designed by educators and student outcome driven. This is a newly developed course and would do well with an evaluation, being as evaluations can include stakeholders and the final users.

 

For this week’s assignment, I chose a different set of questions and opted not to use the recommended questions. I did this mainly because I knew everyone would be asking and answering those same set of questions. So, I figured I would branch out a bit and actually try to grow myself a bit more by coming up with my own questions, straight from the hip.

I asked the following set of questions to two of my classmates, Gerard Apanewicz, and Felicia McGhee, and I got a great response from both of them. I saw that Felicia replied after 6 pm on Sunday night to my questions, and I was without internet until today, so I am putting this together now for submission. Below are the questions that I sent to my classmates and a summary of their responses.

  1. Given your understanding of where we are in the program, what you would have expected to see happen but may be missing?

From both of my classmates I gathered that both of them have been online learners for a good while and they miss the true “hands on” aspect of learning, and having an actual true moc evaluation to go through as if it were a live evaluation. The program itself seems to be lacking in that department respectively speaking, rather than find our own program to evaluate, to actually have a list of programs we could pick from and evaluate. Maybe even get put into groups and work together doing a program evaluation from the aspect of a simulated team of evaluators and have a final group project submission such as in real life.

  1. Explain your method of how you will gather data for this evaluation? Would it be a single method or mixed?

The major consensus between the three of us would be a mixed method of gathering information, due to the fact that we all are in agreeance one method would not give the most accurate results.

  1. What evaluation method would you use to evaluate this program? Explain.

All parties have answered mainly that we would all use the participant oriented evaluation model, due to the major stakeholders being faculty, students, and the administration of the college.

  1. Explain what design model you would use based on your evaluation method.

This one would be more diverse with one using the descriptive design model due to the questions asked being descriptive. The other answer I got was responsive evaluation, due to responsiveness and flexibility being reflected in the clock state developed to reflect recurring events in a responsive evaluation (Fitzpatrick et al 2010).

  1. Would you use a summative or formative evaluation type? Explain

On this question I got mixed answers as well, one answering formative since this is an active program. The other answered summative based on their knowing some recent graduates and summative being used to judge the worth of the program and focus on the outcomes.

  1. Identify the stakeholders in this evaluation and what are their specific interests?

I got the general consensus of current students (us), prior students, faculty, and the administration. The current students have first hand knowledge of the course in it’s present state. Prior students would offer insight into the previous versions of the course whether it being a positive or negative view. Faculty would offer the expertise and knowledge they have and offer a look into the problems students have during the course. The administration will have an interest in the program in 2 ways, one being they would offer the student contact information, and two, they help provide funding and know the costs of the program as a whole.

  1. Who would be the key stakeholders in this evaluation? Are there any political contexts that may skew the outcome of the evaluation?
    1. Current Students.
    2. Previous Students
    3. Faculty
    4. Administration/Funding Department

There could be political context from both the faculty, administration and funding department. The faculty may feel the course is performing well and any change suggested might be a slight to their performance/ego. From the admin/funding side, any evaluation that may pose a change to the current way of doing things will have an impact to finances. There could be pressure to allude to a favorable outcome to avoid any changes in budget.

How did the experience of conducting each interview differ?

The experience of conducting each interview was as different as night and day. On one hand I got a quick response and the questions they wanted answered were sent out in a timely manner. On the other hand I did not get a set of questions at all from the other classmate, I only got a response and it was too late in the evening on the day the paper was due to actually do anything with, even if I did have internet.

What did you learn about the process of conducting an interview?

The process of conducting an interview in this capacity was much more challenging than actually conducting a job interview. I would much rather have a set time and place for us to meet rather than via email, because there are so many procrastinators out in the world today.

EDUC-6145 Project Management in Education and Training Jarrod Craven

Statement of Work

Name: Jarrod Craven

Date: September 7, 2017

Client: SchoolsOnline Statement of Rationale

Case study #1 “Scott Allen: Designing Learning Objects for Primary Learners.” I was drawn to this study for several reasons, and naming just one would be hard to rationalize. My mother was a teacher at an elementary school for 27 years before being forced into retirement at a fairly young age with a neurological disorder. Her life and works impacted so many people at a young age, and those people still remember her to this day in that town, even though I no longer reside there. Another reason is that I developed a program that works with high school students and teaches them life skills at a high school, and I supervise that along with my other many duties, along with teaching dual enrollment high school students welding at the college where I teach as well. In my opinion this would give me a deeper look into developing curriculum for high school aged kids, and how to best keep them engaged and to keep them from ending up in trouble due to the lack of “things to do” in our city.

Purpose

The purpose behind this project is to design online activities and resources for SchoolsOnline, which is a national initiative that develops online resources for students in the K-12 age range. The team that I am on will be working to design the courses, along with the online resources and activities with multiple objectives that will have to be completed by the learners. The course and resources will be taught to Australian K-12 students and will have to be developed in a way that it can be taught in simplest for to a single student or in a classroom of many. Activities and resources should be developed in a way that facilitates learning, not just meeting the learning objectives. Resources and activities must be developed in authentic context, and be able to be used across multiple operating systems, and will teach history, geography, environmental studies, cultural values, and life studies on particular regional and rural people. (Ertmer, et. al, 2014)

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of each module students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate ability to make important decisions when presented with problems, and devise an array of solutions and approaches to solve each problem and support critical thinking.
  • Demonstrate skills necessary to prepare and plan an outdoor activity or solve a puzzle.
  • Demonstrate ability to make a connection with other learners from different disciplines and complete lessons and activities.
  • Demonstrate ability to use new technologies proficiently to better promote the learning experience.
  • Demonstrate ability to complete activities in a group setting or as an individual assignment.
  • Demonstrate ability to distinguish between needs and wants.
  • Demonstrate investigative abilities of different world views, such as social, ecological, cultural, political, and ethical problems alike.
  • Demonstrate a proper understanding of skills and behavior associated with certain decision making principles of the democratic process, and the social justice system. (Ertmer, et. al, 2014)

 Constraints

This project has a timeline to build of 3 months, which will pose a problem due to having communication gaps between the design team and the writing team. There will be gaps in time associated with when each team receives the parts of the build from the other, and if one or the other is late, then the whole project can be thrown off course. The timeline in and of itself is a challenge, because of how short it is and the fact that the communication is not real time between all of the teams. (Ertmer, et. al, 2014)

Assumptions

  • The resources are being developed only for Australian students
  • There is no need for developing contents for anything outside Australia
  • All teams will work together and complete their portions in a timely manner
  • There are detailed specifications already in place for the design and writing teams.

Project Scope and Groupings

This undertaking will incorporate 15 finished lessons that are prepared to be used in classrooms that use SchoolsOnline. The lesson designs will be finished for different review levels and can be effortlessly adjusted to different ages. The lessons are to be finished with little gathering or freely. They will then be transferred to SchoolsOnline for classrooms to utilize in their teaching environments. This venture does exclude preparing on the most proficient method to utilize SchoolsOnline. The staff and understudies will look for preparing from qualified people without anyone else. The task won’t disclose how to utilize the apparatuses on SchoolsOnline with a specific end goal to finish the lessons. They are extremely shortsighted and can act naturally educated or prepared by another part outside the venture scope.

Groupings and Responsibilities Chart

P = Participant A= Accountable R= Review I= Input required S= Sign-off required

Assumptions

I am under the assumption that I am the Project Manager since I have heard no different and this is a Project Management class. With that said I assume that I will be ultimately responsible for the entire project’s success or failure. To be able to complete the project in a timely fashion, I divided the tasks and responsibilities between the four group members on the team. Each piece will be receiving a sign off because they will need to be passed off to the other teams or groups before each of them can move forward. To be able to have a starting point, I went ahead and assumed that a clear objective had been set, and some of the lessons had been written, due to the scenario talking about looking at some of the lessons.

Work Breakdown Structure

Project Schedule

A project schedule exists so that everyone on a project knows when something is due, and to forecast the next step or piece of the project. Schedules are important to have within a project so each person will know what part they are working on and when it will be due as well. This does not only assist the project manager, but helps the team keep accountability for their assigned tasks. It is imperative that all members of the team understand their role and each part of the project, and when each portion is due. This will also benefit each group member so that they understand how their work affects each member on the team. So, with all of this in mind, a project schedule will help to pull the members of the team together and keep them focused on the common goal.

Resource Allocation Plan

Having a resource allocation plan allows project managers to allocate resources to specific activities in the event there are multiple demands for the same limited resources (Portny et al., 2008, p. 202). It is imperative that a PM knows what they are doing when taking on a project, and this plan will help them to make the most of the time and budget accordingly. After conducting a market analysis and finding a median average of the pay rates of instructional designers vs lead instructional designers it comes out that ID’s make roughly $30 per hour and Lead ID’s make roughly $54 per hour.

EDUC 6135 Distance Learning/Walden University Jarrod Craven

Scenario: A training manager has been frustrated with the quality of communication among trainees in his face-to-face training sessions and wants to try something new. With his supervisor’s permission, the trainer plans to convert all current training modules to a blended learning format, which would provide trainees and trainers the opportunity to interact with each other and learn the material in both a face-to-face and online environment. In addition, he is considering putting all of his training materials on a server so that the trainees have access to resources and assignments at all times.

What are some of the pre-planning strategies the trainer needs to consider before converting his program?

 

During the planning stages of taking a face-to-face course to an online blended format, there are some things that need to be taken into consideration. With that in mind of the ones involved with the learning, these people are full time workers who have families and lots of other life obligations. Some key concepts are identified in our textbook Teaching and Learning at a Distance, that gives a guideline so to speak of how to structure the course (Simonson, Smaldino, Albright, & Zvacek, 2009). I will from here list some strategies a developer should follow before making a traditional course into an online course. 1. Make the assessment of the learners, whether they will be able to navigate the new course. 2. If their computer skills and comprehension level is that which they can participate in the training. 3. Whether the course will be delivered as synchronous or asynchronous. 4. Develop a course syllabus with the structure of the course, expectations, assignments and assessments that will be due (Simonson, Smaldino, Albright, & Zvacek, 2009). 5. Develop or purchase all of the materials needed for instruction, and what will be needed as a student for the class to be delivered successfully. 6. The trainer will also need to be well versed on the training materials so that they are not fumbling around when it is time to teach the course. 7. When developing the online communication options, one should consider whether a discussion forum, or a chat function will be best, or just email, phone, or a combination of these options. .

What aspects of his original training program could be enhanced in the distance learning format?

     From here the training program could be enhanced tremendously, due largely to the vast amount of online training modules out on the internet, that are of no charge to the company or instructor. This goes to show that the presentations can be viewed and used as much as one needs, and can be used as a link inside of many different course management systems. From the description of the scenario, the training managers already know the material, so having to know the content is already done on their behalf.

How will his role, as trainer, change in a distance learning environment?

     To begin with, the person conduction the training will change roles from being a strictly face-to-face instructor in a traditional format to a blended environment of online and face-to-face interaction. This will serve the training manager two roles if you will, one being the role of classroom instructor, and online class facilitator. From this the training manager will have to convert his teaching method from an instructor to more of an SME or subject matter expert. From here, this person will have to think on their feet, and be more of a problem solver than a traditional instructor especially when problems arise in the online forums.

What steps should the trainer take to encourage the trainees to communicate online?

From here, the instructor will have to know how to use the CMS that is chosen for them to present the information in, and just simply build a discussion forum, then make participation in the discussion mandatory and part of their performance evaluation at the end. The manager could easily build a weekly discussion to get the students used to logging in and going to the discussion portal to read the topic and post to their peers. From there it would just be a matter of covering the different topics that directly tie into the information that will be presented for that week, or training session. With this the students could show a lot of improvement in their team collaboration, and communication within that said team as well.

EIDT6501 Week 6 Assignment Blog Posting

EIDT6501 Week 6 Assignment Blog Posting:

There is little question that technology use in training is on the rise and is here to stay; however, few would argue that throwing technological components into training programs just to appear “up to date” is wise. Strategically and thoughtfully applying technological components to enhance the impact and/or measurability of training solutions is what any good trainer strives for.

For this assignment, begin by thinking about the various training technologies outlined in Chapter 8 of the Noe text and in the required article. Consider what impact these technologies are having and will continue to have in training and development environments.

Next, complete the following:

  • Choose FOUR technologies or technological advancements used in training, as described in Chapter 8 of the Noe text and in the required article
  • Conduct online research (in the Walden library or other reputable site) to find ONE additional article or resource that highlights the use of technology for teaching or training purposes.

By Day 4

Post a blog entry that explains the impact each of your FIVE selected technologies has and will continue to have on how people learn and interact, and the implications of this for training. If available, include links to websites that offer the technology or images of the technology in your post.

Utilizing Technology in Training

 

Using technology in training is a way to “keep up with the times” like the assignment is stating. Utilizing technology to stay in tune with technology is a great way to enhance training for students in the age of technology. With the use of the following technologies below, one can be pretty sure they are keeping up with the times and giving enhanced training methods to their students.

 

Webcasts:

                                                         live   

As indicated by Noe, webcasting is portrayed as “classroom direction that is given through live broadcast” (Noe, 2010) A webcast is a media document dispersed over the Internet utilizing spilling media innovation to circulate a solitary substance source to numerous concurrent audience members/watchers. A webcast may either be conveyed live or on request. Basically, webcasting is “communicating” over the Internet. Webcasting isn’t intuitive. In the event that copyright material is exhibited there are licenses that can be acquired for these. Webcasting can use shabby technology and still work, since it has enabled autonomous media to thrive. You Tube is an archive of huge numbers of these webcasts.

 

Learning Management Systems/Course Management System:

                                                   LMS

LMS/CMS systems are utilized to convey and make courses, connect learning assets, draw in representatives and make, alter, circulate and convey evaluations. (Noe, 2010) They enable training content to be most cost effective as training should be possible from any area, available to more students, and takes into consideration following of learners progress.

Simulations:

                                              Simulation

As per Noe, reenactment gives understudies moment criticism in regards to territories of quality and shortcoming keeping in mind the end goal to make redresses to enhance their execution of the undertaking. (Noe, R., 2010) Simulation is the impersonation of a certifiable procedure or framework. A model is produced and speaks to the principle qualities or practices and the members utilizing hands on exercises take care of the issue or action. The model speaks to the framework itself, while the reenactment speaks to the activity of the framework after some time.

                                            

Smart Phones:

                                          smart phones

“Smart” mobile phones enable people to speak with others by telephone, web, content informing enabling proprietors to remain over late occasions, information, getting to data continuously. The Army is utilizing advanced mobile phones as a preparation apparatus. As per Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, the U.S. Army is creating applications for smart phones and those who read rather than manuals to enable teaching of troops around the world.

 

Using video and embedding questions:

                                         In_video_questions_UdoObodo

Students in today’s society take in video like they drink soda. As the present instructors use this reality by utilizing video for instructional purposes like never before, free devices that empower teachers to insert questions are an effective guide. At the point when students are solicited to expend video content outside from class, how might you guarantee that they are taking in the content?

Week 2 EIDT 6501 Training and Development

In this week’s blog posting I decided to go with doing an assessment on Cisco since I am a network manager for an IT company and we deal with some Cisco equipment. We mainly use and are switching to Brocade Communications equipment totally in the next few months.

What stakeholders would you want to make sure to get buy-in from?

Considering in this line of work the amount of stakeholders would be rather large, going from the management side all the way down to the newest hired employee. So, a rather large spectrum of employees will have to be engaged in the right manner to get buy-in from them all.

What questions would you ask (and to whom would you address them) during the organizational, person, and task analysis phases?

During this phase, I would formulate my questions for each group of people from the upper management down to the lowest in the hierarchy. I would ask questions such as: What are the employee’s experience, skillsets, and interests? What are the goals for getting this type of training? What is management’s commitment to training? What is the preferred delivery method for training in this organization? Does your organization require certifications from the training they receive? I feel with asking these questions that I could most likely get a good grasp on the type of training that would be needed and best suit the company.

What documents or records might you ask to see?

I would ask to see what certifications the employees currently held. Then I would go on to see they type of professional development training that each employee had completed in the last 5 years or the lack there of in some cases. I then would ask to see what their policy is for employees getting training on their own, vs the company paying for a third party to come in and do the training. Then I would ask to see any documentation on whether there was in incentive program, or reimbursement program for those who wanted to take it upon themselves to go out and get professional training on their own.

What techniques would you employ (see Table 3.2 on page 108 of the Noe text), and why?

In this field, I would say that an instructor led approach along with each understudy having a computer for an interactive hands-on type of training would be the best approach for this type of training. Due largely in part to technical people like myself have to see and then do, for it to stick and them be able to repeat the sections trained after the training is complete.

 

Week 1 Post EIDT6501 Elevator Speech

Hello, my name is Jarrod Craven and I would like to take a minute or so of your time to explain why and how performance improvement can help your organization. Whatever the organization is, whether they are a construction company, hospital, or manufacturing plant, they all have the desire to demonstrate quality, excellence, and overall effectiveness. Based on my research, there are a couple of ways top performing companies are set apart from their competition. The first one being, they are better organized to better meet the needs of their employees, so that they are more attractive to potential employees. Their people that they already have, are highly motivated to do the highest quality job and have the highest quality pay scale because of this. The second thing is they are better equipped to meet the needs of their client base, and also to attract new clients either by anticipating the needs that they see in trends, meet the expectations of current clients and so forth. Also, they are able to deliver a higher quality product or service for a better price, because they are higher motivated per se, than Company “B” with no performance improvement measures.

Scope Creep

I have read a lot on scope creep lately, I knew what it was prior to taking this course, and had dealt with it in a previous project, but luckily finished the project without going bust in the financial department. Now mind you, I have managed construction projects more so than any other type of project, and adding additional stuff onto one of those type projects without approval is usually a big no-no. But there have been times as a new PM I, by way of keeping the customer happy have taken on a couple of additional jobs and it cost me money in my big picture. Although the customer was happy, my bosses were not happy with how I cost the project some money. As an ID, I would have to seek approval, get adjusted time lines, adjusted costs for the customer, as well as money added to the budget on my side to make up for the additional items the customer wants. I learned all of this on a large scale job, and I can honestly say I was lucky the budget did not get too adversely effected due to me being a customer service type of guy. In my instance, scope creep was not a huge determining factor in my project, but it did give me a better view of what to do in the future when dealing with the customer wanting to add things to the ongoing project. You just have to know how to talk with them, let them know that you will need to seek approval, get timelines adjusted, and make the necessary budget adjustments as well. If a PM follows this advice, they should not have a problem with scope creep in their projects.

Week 4 EDUC 6145 Blog Post

https://www.slideshare.net/kgklotz/project-management-for-instructional-designers

In this slideshare website that I ran across, it gives a great amount of information about project management for instructional designers in the form of a slideshow. This could be very useful to a new PM or ID for that matter, especially if the PM is actually wearing both hats. This could also be something as simple as a “pocket” guide in the event a PM runs into a roadblock and needs a refresher on something in the event a new project arises and they have forgotten some basic principles of PM. I know I would definitely use this if I were to become a PM for an ID project, due to how well this information is broken down and spelled out.

https://facdev.e-education.psu.edu/plan/resources

I really like this site, as it has numerous links to helpful information that will help an ID and a PM as well. The different links to resources such as the design models and methods are really handy, and laid out well from what I have read. This site entails learning theories, talks of e learning, and even gives a link to 12 youtube videos for online educators. I can definitely see myself exploring this site a lot further, even after this class ends.

 

Communicating Effectively

To prepare for this assignment, view the multimedia program “The Art of Effective Communication.” In this program, you will observe a piece of communication in three different modalities: as written text, as audio, and as video. Pause after receiving the communication in each modality, and reflect upon what you interpret the message to mean. Think about the content and tone of the message. Record your interpretation of the message after receiving it in each modality. Then reflect upon the experience by considering the following:

  • How did your interpretation of the message change from one modality to the next?
  • What factors influenced how you perceived the message?
  • Which form of communication best conveyed the true meaning and intent of the message?
  • What are the implications of what you learned from this exercise for communicating effectively with members of a project team?

Responses

 

Email: No individual association. The tone of the message is left for the recipient’s own particular elucidation which could absolutely be erroneous or inverse of the sender’s expectation. This is an exceptionally casual method of correspondence, which is probably not going to deliver the coveted outcomes. With this mode messages get misconstrued and a feeling of individual association is never genuinely settled or kept up.

Phone message: somewhat more individual than the email. Being that you could really hear the voice, you can observe some sort of tone in the message and one is not absolutely speculating on how the messages is expected to be gotten.

Vis-à-vis: In my assessment, this is the best strategy. It doesn’t raise space for elucidation. You can hear the sender and in addition watch their tone and non-verbal communication. There is less space for error with this technique.

The eye to eye meeting would be seen as a more expert occasion, as though two partners who meet all the time were meeting by and by for one to ask a general work question from the other and asking for an earnest reaction so as to finish an important report that influences them two. The force of the demand would obvious and capable of being heard. While the level of demonstrable skill is more on an individual level, it is casual, yet it is not out of the ordinary as they are in this eye to eye condition and are work partners.

What factors influenced how you perceived the message?
Components that would impact my view of the up close and personal meeting would be their easygoing quality around each other, their casualness, yet it doesn’t eclipse the need for the necessity of the report. It was significantly less demanding to pick up a surely knew message in light of the visuals, tone, expression in their voices, and non-verbal communication. This strategy would pass on the genuine importance and purpose of the message.

Which form of communication best conveyed the true meaning and intent of the message?
The type of correspondence that best passed on the genuine importance and plan of the message was the eye to eye strategy. The adequacy of gatherings is that things complete. At the point when there’s an issue that requires a choice, you’re ready to achieve an accord all the more rapidly. One basic 5-minute discussion could kill 15 forward and backward messages.

What are the implications of what you learned from this exercise for communicating effectively with members of a project team?

The specialized strategy that you select ought to rely upon your message. Project Managers are in charge of an assortment of correspondence exercises amid the life of a project. Correspondence can be in a number of different ways. Project Managers should design and prepare so that their messages are clearly deciphered and interpreted properly by the project team.

Rundown:

Suggestions gained from this lesson are that appearance is everything, except when the absence of appearance is available, the fitting tone, level of regard and demonstrable skill should be passed on all together for the beneficiary of the message to comprehend the genuine plan. Something else, the message can be misjudged and misconstrued, externalized with false expectation, and hurled to the side because of a possibly false appearance in the beneficiary’s eyes and ears. It is not so much what gets said but rather how it is deciphered by the individual accepting the message. Without guaranteeing that an unmistakable message that completely clarifies every last angle waiting be tended to is displayed, inconvenient results could happen (Laureate Education, n.d., Project administration concerns).

Through this task, I have figured out how to listen more before talking. Everybody has an alternate point of view on what they are translating and permitting them the time and opportunity of having the capacity to convey what needs be will empower a man to learn at a more profound level and see all the more completely what the genuine issues included might be. The message can be conveyed in a huge number of ways, however understanding what the best path for your gathering of people to get the message is a basic perspective to know about when imparting. Speaking with your partners on a venture ought to be deciphered in this way. Every individual on the group has an alternate personality and ought to be dealt with all things considered. Being strategic while communicating thoughts and conceivable arrangements will take into account more noteworthy movement to happen on the task (Laureate Education, n.d., Project administration concerns).
