| November 7, 2018

In a typical classroom training environment in organizations, the trainer passes on knowledge or a lecture and the learners take notes. Classroom training events are usually scheduled months in advance and seek to cover as much as possible in a short period of time. However, this type of training is not yielding the expected results because the expectations from training have evolved in the recent past. These include specialized instruction, dynamic learner schedules, varied learning styles, and constantly changing curricula.In addition to this, millennial workers do not appreciate these methods because they are more comfortable with learning methods that have a digital connection and give them opportunities for collaborative learning. There is also mounting evidence that classroom training does not work anymore, especially when organizations expect employees to do more with less and want them to use their training time effectively.

For colleges and universities, the sudden shift away from traditional classroom spaces has upended typical teaching tactics. Even schools with minimal online infrastructure must now deliver distance learning at scale.

Understanding & Improving the Universal Tier

Article | February 19, 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.
