    [Providers] Forging Perfect Employees With eLearning
    The ubiquitous consistency that electronic classes provide yields better results from students. eLearning provides amazing intellectual results, comparable and even surpassing standard education.

    [Providers] "Get Out There"
    My desire to provide our learners with an engaging, visually rich, intuitive portal into SAP is borne out of the disengaging, unappealing, complicated SAP GUI. For me the outcome of the meeting was a realisation that whilst the integration was perfectly feasible (Capita had achieved it along with a number of other organisations) it may be more prudent to wait for the SAP Learning Solutions platform to be implemented within my business as this could quite possibly provide the intuitive, engaging tool that I am looking for. have already commented on this in a previous post.
    [Providers] WANTED: Blogging Discipline
    I get the benefits of blogging… I get that it enhances the learning experience by providing an environment in which to reflect… I get that it provides others with an opportunity to learn from me, as I do on many occasions from them… I get that it is a wonderful networking opportunity… I get all of this and yet, despite the promises I made myself to blog on a fortnightly basis (as a minimum) I have failed to do this! Is it down to a lack of time? Is it down to being paranoid over my digital footprint? Is it down to a lack of content? Probably!

    Twitter provides me with many benefits, one of which is a forecast of events that are taking place that I might be be interested in. One email later and I was buying my train ticket to Gloucester. I was a little reticent over attending the event as I work in neither HE, FE nor a work-based learning provider; I do however work for an organisation that delivers an incredible amount of training due to compliance and regulatory driven needs. Several days ago I picked up Tweet from @James Clay , who was conducting a Mobile Learning Boot Camp. link].

    Encourage delegates to set up a Twitter account prior to the un-conference and provide the support for them in doing this. Had a little thought whilst driving home tonight. Part of my role involves facilitating the Continuing Professional Development of a number of internal Learning Facilitators. Invite all Learning Facilitators to attend. Set up a Google Moderator series to allow attendees to choose some of the content for themselves. Invite all delegates to facilitate their own sessions (depending on the number of submissions these could be voted upon). Utilise Twitter and other Web 2.0

    [Providers] Happy Tweetiversary to me!
    Twitter has enabled me to attend Jane Harts Masterclass on Using Social Media for Learning, James Clays Mobile Learning Boot Camp, the eLearning Network 2010 showcase (which subsequently led me to joining the eLN) It has provided me with some excellent contacts and some fantastic learning opportunities. So here I am 12 months later with approx 2500 tweets under my belt, 175 followers and following 92 other people.

    … is unlikely to be answered by me or my Blog… Yet again Twitter has provided me with a CPD opportunity. The other day I spotted a re-tweet by Steve Wheeler ( @timbuckteeth ) relating to an Open Course on Personal Learning Environments, Networks and Knowledge. Now I believe that I have been operating within a PLE/N for approx 8 months now (since my attendance at the Learning Technologies Conference in Jan 2010), I had just never labelled it as such or realised what I was involved in.

    Delegates would be able to access the suggested reading ‘any time’-‘any where’ due to the freedom provided by the lightweight, portable device.

    As always these ‘physical’ activities provide me with a great opportunity to further cement friendships made online as well as to make new acquaintances. Ask my IT Department to provide any facilitator with ‘admin rights’ to the virtual classrooms website to allow them to update any settings without creating a burden on the IT Department. All in all, some great ideas and wonderful conversations coupled with my new approach to gathering ‘small chunks’ provided another wonderful CPD opportunity.

    Gallup provides some hard-to-forget numbers: The cost savings from these two factors alone should be a deep incentive for companies to invest in employee well-being, but many do not. “Organizational well-being” is a term that’s tossed around in discussions about company success and longevity quite a bit these days, but it’s still a concept taken lightly by many companies—at a cost. What is organizational well-being? In other words, the happiness and health of employees is really good for business. Why don’t more companies focus on organizational well-being?

    [Providers] When Risk Depends On Human Error
    Rather than provide a very technical post, here’s what I want to convey. To most safety professionals the process of assessing workplace risk involves hazard analysis: hazard identification, selection of controls, and audit to assure the controls are in place and adequate, etc. In fact, in the latest edition of On The Practice Of Safety , by Fred Manuelle, when I was scanning the index for “risk assessment” content it refers you to “hazard analysis”. So what’s the big deal and what does this have to do with human performance? Let’s discuss. . Hazards and Risk. The bottom line is simple.

    [Providers] Does your Organization have “Zompetencies?”
    They provide guidance to managers and direct reports alike on the behaviors that are expected. Competencies are the language of talent management. They also are a way to assess those behaviors, whether for the purpose of hiring, development, or performance appraisal. Yet, for all that can potentially be right about competencies, so much can also potentially be wrong. In many organizations we talk to, competencies are too numerous, ill-defined, or too complex. The result is the competencies are infrequently used and ultimately cast aside.
