The purpose of training is ultimately to improve organizational performance in order to meet business goals more effectively regardless of the industry, audience and skillset. The importance of training is never contested, however, the effectiveness of training is up for debate. Collaborative research suggests that training design, on-the-job training, and delivery style all have an impact on training and development, which directly affects organizational performance (ref. 1). Therefore organizational performance goals will not be met and learning gaps will not be filled efficiently unless the training process itself is optimized.In order to maximize organizational benefits, the learning process must be optimized. The quality of the learning experience is dependent on factors like: how the information is delivered and accessed, what information is present and to whom, how the information is applied and assessed, and how it can be accessed or revisited in the future.

Boston Dynamics’ Handle robot recreated with Raspberry Pi

Article | August 25, 2020

You in the community seemed so impressed with this recent Boston Dynamics–inspired build that we decided to feature another. This time, maker Harry was inspired by Boston Dynamics’ research robot Handle, which stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4 feet vertically. Here’s how Harry made his miniature version, MABEL (Multi Axis Balancer Electronically Levelled). MABEL has individually articulated legs to enhance off-road stability, prevent it from tipping, and even make it jump (if you use some really fast servos). Harry is certain that anyone with a 3D printer and a “few bits” can build one.

What can early career researchers gain from External Examiner training?

Article | August 25, 2020

In early May 2020, Advance HE sent out a call for academics to participate in 'external examiner training' which is certificated as continued professional development. For me, it was astounding that within forty-five minutes of sending the initial call for participants the workshop sessions had all been filled, and a second email was issued advising that interested participants were now being wait-listed. This surge of interest was intriguing as it seemed to either suggest that academics in HE were quite eager for CPD opportunities, or that any training regarding the process and diligences of 'external examining' had much to be desired. I considered myself fortunate to make the cut and found the five-units of training spread over four-weeks of participation to be informative, though not quite what I had initially expected.
