Designing More Effective e-Learning Courses

Organisations are embracing shorter and more abbreviated learning, within an online environment, in a move geared at creating greater efficiency. Not only are shorter eLearning courses less time consuming, but what organisations are finding is that they’re also more effective. However, regardless of their duration, if the sessions are not designed effectively, they will ultimately miss the mark with learners. 

Today’s learner has less time and a shorter attention span, making it unrealistic to assume that they can sit for long periods to complete an e-learning course without interruption. This is what has driven the shift toward just-in-time, bite-sized learning.

Facilitating Effective e-Learning Sessions

When it comes to a convenient, time-efficient way to get a message or concept across to a large audience, live e-learning events such as webinars and web conferencing are hard to beat. Clearly, they are quickly becoming an indispensable part of the e-learning world as well as the wider business community. 

Live e-learning events cut down on the travel and administrative time needed to coordinate in-person meetings and allow you to reach a broader audience than ever before. However, there is still some work to be done in making these sessions as effective as they could be, before they completely edge out the traditional, face-to-face experience.

Developing Best Practice Assessment

Assessment quality is certainly a hot-button compliance topic at present. Recent strategic reviews conducted by the national regulator have raised questions about the appropriateness and sufficiency of assessment practices within the sector. Therefore, it is important for an RTO to understand the capacity of the assessment tools they use and be able adapt these to meet the requirements of the relevant training package, the expectations of industry and the guidelines from the regulator. This will not only help to build confidence in the quality of assessment but will ensure consistency of performance.

Creating User-friendly RPL

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), is the formal acknowledgment of a person's current skills and knowledge, no matter how, when or where the learning occurred. However, the challenge for many RTO’s is how to best capture and measure this proof of current competency. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to best read a unit of competency and identify ways to collect evidence to support the claim of competency that is both audit and candidate friendly!

How to use virtual assessment platforms

This webinar seeks to shed some light on common and emerging platforms (both free and fee-based) relating to assessing learners in virtual settings and will provide suggestions now how these could be used within the VET environment. This includes looking at options for managing student submissions and providing feedback; identifying mechanisms for conducting verification and authenticity checks; exploring platforms for assessing and recording live student performance; highlighting how smart devices could be used to capture evidence; and reviewing how virtual reality tools, voice recognition and artificial intelligence algorithms could be integrated into the assessment process. These options will also be grounded within an RTO compliance context.

Facilitation Tips to enhance your Trainer’s Tool Kit

This webinar is packed full of tested tips for online facilitators. In face-to-face training, a carefully selected game or activity will support the trainer in attracting and maintaining interest in their session. However, in many cases this involvement and interaction is removed when converted to an e-learning pathway. As such, death by webinar is rapidly replacing death by PowerPoint! Make your webinars and other e-learning resources more effective and engaging! This session discusses how to deliver results before, during and after a webinar. This session also provides a series of field-tested, yet customisable activities that allow trainers to instantly increase the impact of their e-learning programs.

Managing Trainer Currency

Maintaining trainer currency and vocational competency are requirements for all trainers in the VET sector. In fact, under the Standards for RTOs 2015, it states that training and assessment must only be delivered only by trainers and assessors who can demonstrate current industry skills, directly relevant to the training and assessment being provided. However, this is often something that proves problematic for practitioners, either in terms of recording their proficiency or in actually keeping current. This webinar provides an overview for how to manage trainer currency and provides a variety of techniques and templates to support the journey towards compliance.

How to develop LLN Assessments

Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) skills are now recognised as fundamental to improved workforce participation, productivity and social inclusion. Every workplace task involves reading, writing, speaking, listening and mathematical skills. Learners who have limitations in one or more of these core LLN skill areas, will have difficulty participating in training programs and in achieving necessary workplace skills. 

The development of relevant LLN skills at the appropriate level should therefore be seen as an integral component of a trainer’s practice, as they need to ensure that LLN skill development occurs, to maximise all learners’ chances of a successful outcome against the training specification requirements. As such, it is important that LLN assessments are developed to assist trainers in identifying the key LLN skill development needs of their learners and the related support required.

Developing engaging training

Involvement and interaction are at the heart of effective and engaging training. When the learning is participant-centred, students retain more and are more likely to enjoy their learning experience. This session focuses on how to integrate participant-centred learning. It will demonstrate how to add impact to your training with applicable openers and closers, support the revisiting of content in new and fresh ways and will outline how to engage your participants with fast, yet effective energisers. A range of additional support materials will also be provided to assist in putting this all into practice.
