3 Ways To Fit Training Into Tight Schedules

| January 26, 2019

The struggle to offer training support without interrupting operations is felt across all industries. Professionals in nearly all occupations could claim that performance demands are high but their availability for training is low. To address this conflict, learning professionals have modified their designs over the years, first migrating from traditional Instructor-Led Training to web-based training so learners can complete training asynchronously but the seat times were still too long. Most learners, especially those in customer-facing roles, simply don’t have one or two hours to complete a full course.Some organizations are developing vast libraries of content that their employees can access at will. My concern is that without the proper structure, learners may not be able to piece those interesting facts and figures together in a way that impacts their performance. The learning assets might be “nice to know” but may not be designed in a way that triggers performance improvement. So, what can you do?

Ani's Math Story

Article | October 20, 2020

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with math, leaning heavily towards the latter. It was always something I was good at, but didn’t enjoy. Quite frankly, it still stuns me on a regular basis that I’ve ended up working for a math company. Let me try to parse this out by saying that math has been intrinsically tied to every definitive choice I’ve made, consciously or unconsciously. Flash backwards—I’m 4. My mom is teaching me long division, insisting that this is absolutely crucial for how I map the rest of my life. I assume this is how the rest of my peers spend their time, completely oblivious to the fact that other neighborhood children are outside, running around on playgrounds, doing cartwheels up and down their sunlit front yards. Instead, I’m grinding away. I think I remember this as fun. I think I ask my mom to give me another multiplication problem.

Understanding & Improving the Universal Tier

Article | October 20, 2020

The universal tier is the curriculum, instruction, and assessments that we provide to all students in a grade level in school. This is the instruction that’s guaranteed for all students to receive.Our universal tier instruction typically focuses on grade level standards for our state and school. Schools use universal screening data in order to identify the effectiveness of their universal tier. There are two primary questions that schools ask as they’re doing this work. The first is if 80% of their students are successful. Schools typically use 80% criteria because they have resources to intervene with about 20% of students. If they have more than 20% of students who need additional intervention in order to be successful, their resources may be strained and they may not be able to provide intervention to all of those students.
