24 Charts Of Leadership Styles Around The World

Different cultures can have radically different leadership styles, and international organizations would do well to understand them.

British linguist Richard D. Lewis charted these differences in his book “When Cultures Collide,” first published in 1996 and now in its third edition, and he teaches these insights in seminars with major corporate clients.

From structured individualism in the U.S. to ringi-sho consensus in Japan, the charts seem intuitively correct, if not unilaterally true across a country.

Lewis acknowledges the risks of dealing in stereotypes: “Determining national characteristics is treading a minefield of inaccurate assessment and surprising exception. There is, however, such a thing as a national norm.”

He argues that these patterns won’t change any time soon: “Even in countries where political and economic change is currently rapid or sweeping, deeply rooted attitudes and beliefs will resist a sudden transformation of values when pressured by reformists, governments or multinational conglomerates.”

With permission from the author, we are posting 24 charts of leadership styles from his book, with a brief summary of his comments about each below:

British managers are diplomatic, casual, helpful, willing to compromise, and seeking to be fair, though they can be ruthless when necessary. Unfortunately, their adherence to tradition can result in a failure to comprehend differing values in others.

American managers are assertive, aggressive, goal and action oriented, confident, vigorous, optimistic, and ready for change. They are capable of teamwork and corporate spirit, but they value individual freedom and their first interest is furthering their own career.

French managers tend to be autocratic and paternalistic, with an impressive grasp of the many issues facing their company. Opinions of experienced middle managers and technical staff may be dismissed.

Swedish management is decentralized and democratic. The rationale is that better informed employees are more motivated and perform better. The drawback is that decisions can be delayed.

These Diagrams Reveal How To Negotiate With People Around The World

You can’t expect negotiations with French to be like negotations with Americans, and the same holds true for cultures around the world.

British linguist Richard D. Lewis charted communication patterns as well as leadership styles and cultural identities in his book, “When Cultures Collide,” now in a 2005 third edition. His organization offers classes in cross-cultural communication for big clients ranging from Unilever to BMW.

In support of cultural studies, he writes: “By focusing on the cultural roots of national behavior, both in society and business, we can foresee and calculate with a surprising degree of accuracy how others will react to our plans for them, and we can make certain assumptions as to how they will approach us. A working knowledge of the basic traits of other cultures (as well as our own) will minimize unpleasant surprises (culture shock), give us insights in advance, and enable us to interact successfully with nationalities with whom we previously had difficulty.”

Although cultural generalizations can be overly reductive, Lewis, who speaks ten languages, insists it can be done fairly, writing: “Determining national characteristics is treading a minefield of inaccurate assessment and surprising exception. There is, however, such a thing as a national norm.”

When meeting with French, be prepared for a vigorous logical debate.

When meeting with Americans, expect them to lay all their cards on the table, get upset when there’s a disagreement, and resolve as fast as possible with one or both sides making concessions.

We’ll go over the rest in brief after a selection of communication charts taken with permission from “When Cultures Collide.” Below, conversational range is shown with increasing width, obstacles are marked in gray, and cultural traits are noted as well.

 

As you may surmise, “When Cultures Collide” spends relatively little time on today’s emerging markets, which is unfortunate but not surprising since it was originally published in 1996. The book does offer some commentary on Africa, South America, and other places not mentioned here, however, as well as much further commentary on these 25 countries — and we advise anyone interested in international communication to check it out.

Let’s go over the other diagrams in brief,  paraphrasing and quoting from Lewis:

Nine Training Alternatives to ‘Correct’ and ‘Incorrect’

Imagine a trainer at the front of the room responding to a participant’s comment by saying nothing more than “You’re right!” or “Incorrect.” Imagine this happening over and over again.

Even though it seems futile, this is one of the most common types of feedback we use in e-learning courses to respond to user actions and answers. In fact, many authoring tools come with these vacuous statements as their default response.

If we’re going after higher-order thinking and maximum learning transfer, then we’re giving up a golden opportunity when we forgo real feedback and instead resort to “correct” and “incorrect.” We need to find ways to close the feedback loop.

You Have Lots of Options

There are many strategies for providing feedback, depending on the context and type of instruction, the objectives of the learning activity, and the audience’s level of expertise. Let’s look at some of your options for providing feedback that is sufficiently informative and moves the learner forward.

1. Real World Consequences

Analog World: Some of the most ideal feedback replicates what happens in the analog world. In simulations and virtual worlds, learners are given a chance to explore, manipulate and practice so they can learn in a safe environment.

In a reasonably accurate simulation, feedback occurs naturally as the result of an action. For example, in a driving simulation, turning a simulated steering wheel to the right appears to turn the car to the right. That’s feedback.

Digital World: Then again, sometimes our simulations replicate the digital world, as in a software simulation. Too often, software simulations are completely canned, so that users can only take one action. If possible, allow for more interactivity so learners can try out the simulated software a bit to better understand how to perform a task. With more flexibility, the feedback simulates the real (digital) world. For example, when the learner clicks a menu item, the menu displays. That’s real world feedback.

We often don’t have the budget for highly robust or complex simulations, so let’s look at some other options.

2. Hints and Cues

During interactions, learners might require several tries in order to clarify a learning point or fine-tune their discriminatory skills. If this is the type of interaction you’re designing, then valuable hints and cues are a good way to assist learners without completely taking away the benefit of making errors.

3. Branching in Stories and Scenarios

When using stories and scenarios in e-learning, it’s natural to take learners down a different path depending on their response. That’s a type of feedback. For example, in an emergency medical training course, the choice of one drug results in stabilizing a patient whereas the choice of another drug results in dangerously high blood-pressure levels.

The difficult part from a design and development perspective is to determine how many paths to design and implement. A simpler approach is to design short forks in the road and then merge the two or three paths back together. It’s one way to avoid a huge design and development effort.

Sensitive Feedback_Elearningguru4. Context-Sensitive Feedback

If you don’t want to build many paths in a story or scenario, simply provide unique feedback specific to each response. In the medical scenario above, an incorrect choice would produce feedback about the danger of the selected drug and request that the learner select another one. Even though context-sensitive feedback is not as compelling as branching, it is more engaging than a facts-only exercise and probably more beneficial to learning.

I think that context-sensitive feedback should be the minimal type of feedback we provide as learning experience designers. This means that we should always provide unique feedback that is specific to each response or action the learner takes. It works in multiple-choice tests as well as games, stories and virtual environments.

5. Incentivized Feedback

Although there is no one type of feedback in learning games, gaining points or completing a challenge is motivating. This type of feedback acts as an incentive to continue playing the game and learning.

As Karl Kapp writes in The Gamification of Learning and Instruction, “A player gets caught up in playing a game because the instant feedback and constant interaction are related to the challenge of the game, which is defined by the rules, which all work within the system to provoke an emotional reaction and, finally, result in a quantifiable outcome within an abstract version of a larger system.”

6. Peer or Social Feedback

In a training context, you can use collaborative and social media tools to give and receive peer feedback from colleagues. For example, if you were designing a course for new coaches, you could set up a Facebook Group page for discussion. Then request that participants write about how they would handle a specific coaching situation.

The participants would comment on how each coach managed the fictitious problem and everyone would learn in the process. The added bonus here is that the act of critiquing and commenting can help reviewers themselves, according to one study where undergraduate students critiqued each others writing. (Cho and Cho, 2011)

See Social Media for Trainers by Jane Bozarth for more ways to use social media for learning.

7. Explanatory Feedback

You can apply explanatory feedback to any learning experience in which errors are caused by misconceptions or a lack of knowledge. If your design has frequent opportunities for learners to respond, then you can catch and remediate misconceptions as the learner is constructing meaning.

In particular, explanatory feedback, rather than corrective feedback, is a good choice for discovery learning as it helps learners build accurate mental models. In addition, there is evidence that explanatory feedback reduces cognitive load. (Moreno, 2004)

8. Self-Directed Feedback

Motivated or mature learners can benefit from self-directed feedback. As the learning designer, you can present thoughtful questions that encourage learner reflection, self-evaluation and self-assessment.

For example, after requesting that learners write a short essay response to a question, provide an ideal response or specific criteria as feedback. Then let learners evaluate their own essay and compare it to the ideal. There are many types of self-evaluation questions that can encourage higher-order thinking and reflection.

9. Worked Examples as Feedback

Worked-out examples are step-by-step demonstrations of how to solve a problem. They are thought to be effective with learners who have limited prerequisite knowledge because these examples reduce cognitive load. (Sweller, et al, 1998)

If the focus of your instruction is problem solving, then you can provide worked-out examples for learners to study and then again as feedback after they solve a problem. Note that worked examples are not effective for learners who are skilled at a task as it interferes with their ability to solve problems like an expert.

Doing Business Better through Enterprise Mobility

Source: The Social Workplace – ELIZABETH LUPFER

Follow me @Elearningguru

Over 5.3 billion people or 77% of the world’s population are now on mobile. This growth has led to an explosion of various devices and networks connecting each other, and creating a borderless world. Consumers and enterprises views on how a mobile device can change their lives or enable them to do business better is rapidly evolving, even as vendors and service providers continuously innovate to fuel this mobile culture. The consequence of this end-user demand has been consumerization of IT.

With the blurring of lines between the professional and personal, CIOs must rethink their mobility strategy. This could be through creating programs to support corporate applications, equipping your employees with smartphones and tablets or putting in place processes to drive customer engagement, supply chain operations and collaboration with partners/suppliers.

Enterprise Mobility is the use of mobile technologies to enable anytime anywhere information access to employees, customers and suppliers to bring about improvements in revenue and operational performances, employee productivity, and customer satisfaction.

In fact, enterprise mobility can have the following positive outcomes:

  • 75% WORKER PRODUCTIVITY
  • 65% EMPLOYEE RESPONSIVENESS AND DECISION MAKING SPEED
  • 48% CUSTOMER ISSUE RESOLUTION
  • 42% CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

As the IT landscape evolves, companies that embrace the social and technological challenges originating from that enterprise mobility will be better equipped to lead the growth and future of the organization. For more information, check out this infographic from Wipro Mobility Solutions:

E-Öğrenme Projelerinde Ölçme Değerlendirme Çalışmaları Nasıl Yapılır? (3)

Merhaba. Bu konudaki ikinci makalemde, ilk önce klasik bir eğitim planlama-yürütme projesi için bir takım ölçme-değerlendirme yollarını sizlerle paylaşmıştım.

Şimdiyse bir e-öğrenme projesi için bunu nasıl yapabilirsiniz, bunun yollarını anlatmak istiyorum.

Bersin Beş Adım Yaklaşımı

Uyarı: Bersin Beş Adım Yaklaşımı için kullanmanız gereken verileri, ancak bir Öğrenme Yönetim Sistemi (Learning Management System- kısaca LMS) yardımıyla edinebilirsiniz.

Düzey 1: Kayıtlar – Zorunlu bir eğitim olsun ya da olmasın, kayıtları takip altında tutmak ilk ve en kolay yapılması gereken şeydir. Kaç kişinin sunduğunuz-atadığınız eğitimlere baktığını ve veya aldığını bilmek zorundasınız. Kayıtlar zamanla gözlenmelidir; böylelikle çalışanların yeni konuları ne denli hızlı öğrendiklerine, hangi eğitimlere ilginin az olduğuna, içeride bir tutundurma (çalışana projeyi sevdirme çalışması) sürecinden sonra hangi bşalıkların öne çıktığına dair net bir resim geliştirebilirsiniz.

Bu eğer seçmeli bir dersse özellikle önem taşır; çünkü şayet kayıtlar sabit bir ivmeyle artmıyorsa, insanlar belki de bu bununla ilgilenmiyor ya da hiç haberleri olmamış olabilirler; bu da düzeltilmesi gereken bir pazarlama sorunudur

Örnek: 1 Ocak günü bir eğitimi kullanıcılara açtınız. Kullanıcı sayınız 500. Diyelim ki 2 hafta sonra, 15 Ocak’ta kullanıcıların yüzde kaçı eğitime girmiş, eğitim tamamlama yüzdeleri ne kadar, ortalama eğitimde kalış süreleri nedir gibi sayıları edinmeniz gerekir. Ve bunları düzenli olarak, zamana yayılı şekilde raporlayabilmelisiniz.

Bilgi Kurdu Ölçme Değerlendirme Analiz

Grafik 1(Lütfen grafiğin büyük halini görmek için üzerine tıklayın) Kullanıcı ilgisi düşükse ya kullanıcılar eğitimden haberdar değil (ki çoğu zaman böyledir), ya da eğitim çok ilgi çekici değildir. Birinci durum için iyi bir tutundurma çalışması yapmanız gerekir. İkincisi içinse ya eğitimi ya da içerik sağlayıcınızı değiştirin.

 

Düzey 2Aktivite – Diyelim ki tüm çalışanlar-kullanıcılar eğitime kayıt oldu; peki eğitimdeki ilerlemeler ne durumda?

Tüm kullanıcı aktivitelerini takip etmek, materyali ne denli hızlı öğrendikleri hakkında size ipuçları verecektir.

Eğer eğitimin belirli bir yerinde takılıyorlarsa, ya size şikayetle geri dönerler, ya da eğitimin ilgi yerde eğitim tamamlama yüzdeleri sabit kalmaya başlar. Sistem size bunu gösterecektir. Elbette tüm eğitimin tamamlanma süresi (ilerlemenin alacağı süre), eğitimin uzunluğuna da bağlıdır. Her durumda, bu düzey eğitim tasarımının ve içeriğinin performansını değerlendirmek için çok uygun bir yerdir.

Örnek: Şubat’ın ilk haftasında bir eğitime başlayan yeni bir grubunuz var. Şubat sonunda grubun eğitimde ne kadar ilerlediğine (tamamlama yüzdesi) bakın. Eğitim açık kaldığı sürece doğal bir aktivite düzeyi oluşacaktır. Yüksek düzeyde bir katılımla yapılan başlangıcın ardından, zamanla keskin bir düşüş, veya eğitimin tamamlanmama oranının sürenin sonuna doğru yükselmesi gözlendiğinde, içerikte bir problem olduğunu anlayabilirsiniz.

Çok mu zor, çok mu sıkıcı, çok mu yavan, çok mu alakasız gibi soruları kullanıp içeriği gözden geçirmelisiniz.

İster zorunlu ister seçimli eğitimler olsun, kişinin kendi kendine bilgisayar, akıllı telefon ve tabletler üzerinden aldığı eğitimler için teşvik edici bir mekanizmaya ihtiyaç vardır. Bu öz motivasyonu yüksek bireylerde belki çok ihtiyaç duyulmayabilir, ancak genelde bu tip “teşvik” mekanizmalarını da düşünerek planlama yapmak, e-öğrenme projenizin daha başarılı geçmesinin-yürütülmesinin önünü açacaktır.

“Peki bir eğitimin ne kadar sürede tamamlanması gerekir? Haftalık ortalama aktivite oranları ne olmalıdır?” diye soracak olursanız bu da eğitimin içerik zenginliğine, uzunluğuna, içindeki etkileşimli ekranların adedine göre değişir.

Bilgi Kurdu Ölçme Değerlendirme Analiz

Grafik 2(Lütfen grafiğin büyük halini görmek için üzerine tıklayın) Kullanıcıların gösterdiği genel eğilim, eğitime hızlıca başlamak, epey bir bölümü merakla almak, sonra durmak, ve yavaş yavaş devam etmek yönündedir. Bu da genellikle 2-3 saatlik eğitimlerin ilk bir iki erişimde %50’sinin tamamlanması, sonrasında her hafta bir saatinin tamamlanması anlamına gelir. Genelde eğitim atamalarının bitiş tarihine yakın, aktivitelerde bir yığılma olur. Eğer ilgili bölüm eğitimini-içeriğini iyi pazarladıysa bu yığılma tüm süreye yayılır.

 

Düzey 3Tamamlama – Aslında bir aktivite tipi olan “tamamlama” raporları, size kaç kişinin eğitimi tamamladığını, ne zaman ve ne kadar sürede, kaç kere ilgili içeriği ziyaret ederek tamamladığını öğrenmenizi sağlayacak verileri sunar.

Kimin eğitimi tamamladığını bilmek değerlidir; çünkü eğitimi tamamlayanlar, içeriğin kalitesi ve iş hedeflerinizi karşılamaktaki etkinliği hakkında size daha gerçekçi bir geri bildirim verebilecektir.

Elbette, en baştan doğru hedef kitleyi seçerek, onları doğru eğitimlerle buluşturmaya dikkat edilmelidir. Doğru hedef kitleye ulaşmamış bir eğitimin, doğru hedef kitleye ulaşan bir eğitime kıyasla daha düşük tamamlanma oranları oluşacaktır. Dolayısıyla düşük tamamlama oranı mutlaka eğitimin etkin olmadığı anlamına gelmez. Bu yüzden hedeflemenin doğru olduğundan emin olmak için bu vakalar üzerinde bir analiz gerçekleştirilmelidir.

Bu noktada ilginç bir çıkarıma da yer vermekte fayda var: Tamamlanma oranlarının ortalaması olmaz. 

Bu ne demektir? Bir grupta 100 kişinin tamamlama yüzdesi %50 olsun. Başka bir grubun da %50’sinin tamamlama yüzdesi %100 olsun. Bunlar asla aynı anlama gelmezler. İlki eğitim içeriğinin zayıf veya iyi performans göstermediğine, ikincisi süper bir içeriğe sahip olduğunuza ama grubun bir kısmıyla alakasız olduğuna işarettir.

Grafik 3: (Lütfen grafiğin büyük halini görmek için üzerine tıklayın) Doğru hedef kitlesi-doğru eğitim içeriği seçimi ilk ve en önemli başarı faktörüdür. Bunun üzerine ne kadar kafa yorup, iyi planlarsanız e-öğrenme projeleriniz o kadar başarılı olacaktır.

 
Düzey 4Puanlar – Değerlendirme testlerinde alınan puanlar aslında, kişinin eğitimdeki performansını değerlendirmenin en etkin yolu değildir. Ama size yine de bir baz sunabilir. Çünkü mevcut ölçme-değerlendirme yöntemleri, “kişinin aldığı puanı niye aldığını” ölçemez-bilemez.

Örnek vermek gerekirse, bir kişi eğitim değerlendirme aktivitesinden çok yüksek bir puan aldı diyelim. Bu, kişinin eğitim içeriğini gerçekten çok iyi öğrendiğinin göstergesi midir? Acaba kişi başka birinden kopya mı çekmiştir? Yoksa teste 5 kere girip sonunda en yüksek puanı mı tuttur muştur?

Bu gibi çekincelerden dolayı ölçme sisteminde bazı iyileştirmeler yapılması gerekir, ki kişinin aldığı puanları niye ve nasıl aldığı da analiz edilip daha net sonuçlara ulaşılabilsin. (Bilgi Kurdu’nun  tasarladığı AdvanTEST bu tip analizleri yapabileceğiniz bir araçtır.

Detaylı bilgi için bakınız: http://www.bilgikurdu.net/e-ogrenme/dna-advantest_urun-detayi/)

Çevrimiçi (online) testlerde, kişinin teste erişim limiti, her bir soruyu yanıtlama limiti, soruları karıştırma, soru şıklarını karıştırma, her kişiye aynı soru bankasından rasgele sorular getirme gibi işlevleri olan sistemlerden daha iyi sonuçlar alabilir, analizler yapabilirsiniz.

Örnek: Diyelim ki tasarladığınız testlerde verilen cevap sayısının kaydı tutulmuyorsa, alınan yüksek bir not yanıltıcı olabilir. Çünkü bazı insanlar, eğitim notlarına geri dönüp onu gerçekten öğrenmektense, doğru cevap verene kadar sadece tahmin yürütmeye devam ederler. Eğer tüm bu cevap sayıları kayıt altında tutulmazsa, kişi yanıltıcı şekilde yüksek bir not almış olur; bu da yapmaya çalıştığınız objektif değerlendirmelerin boşa gitmesine sebep olur; en kötüsü de bunun farkına bile varmamanızdır. 

Bunun yanında olaya sadece teknolojik olarak bakmamakta da fayda var. Bu tip ölçme-değerlendirme aktivitelerini eğitim öncesi, sırası ve sonrasında devam eden bir süreçte tekrarlamak sizi daha net sonuçlara ulaştırabilir. Bir eğitimdeki bilgi düzeyini ölçerken, katılımcı içerikte ilerledikçe daha sık şekilde küçük ve kısa sınavlar yapmanın daha iyi sonuçlar vereceğine inanıyorum. Bu katılımcının bir zaman diliminde küçük bilgi parçacıklarını sindirmesine olanak tanır. Böylece kişinin gelişimini de yakın gözlem altına almış olursunuz.

Online değerlendirme testlerinde hangi soruların zorlukla cevaplandığı, hangilerinde herkesin doğru bildiği gibi verilere de erişim hazırladığınız testlerdeki zorlukları, hataları yakalamanızı sağlar.

Grafik 4(Lütfen grafiğin büyük halini görmek için üzerine tıklayın) Hem eğitim tamamlama, hem de test puanları birlikte size kişinin e-öğrenme platformundaki performansıyla ilgili çok güzel ipuçları verecektir.

 

Düzey 5Geri bildirim – Geri bildirim, klasik sınıf için eğitimin aksine kullanıcıyla çok az ya da hiç yüz yüze gelmeyen bir sistem için çok kritik öneme sahiptir.

Katılımcıların neyi beğenip, neden hoşlanmadıkları, eğitim tasarımından tutun da, içeriği seslendiren kişinin ses tonuna varana dek, pek çok farklı parametreyle ilgili geri bildirim çok değerlidir. Bunların hem numerik olması, yani bir skala üzerinden değerlendirilmesi, hem de yazılı olarak yorum alınması en iyi yöntemdir.

Alacağınız geri bildirimlerden edinilecek veriler size içeriğin akışı, kullanılan medya kalitesi (ses-resim-video), tasarlanan animasyonların içeriğe uygunluğu, içeriğin eğlence unsurlarının çekiciliği, kişiyi meraklandırmasıyla ilgili çok güzel fikirler verecektir.

Bu tip geri bildirim anketlerini online eğitimlerin son ekranlarına yerleştirmek, geri bildirimleri kişi tamamladığı anda ilgili içerik-eğitim uzmanları ve tasarımcılara göndermek ve bunun bilgisini de kişiye vermek, eğitim tamamlama oranlarınızı arttıracaktır.

İşte e-öğrenme projelerinde de KirkPatrick modeline paralel bir değerlendirmenin nasıl yapılabileceğini de görmüş olduk.

 

Peki tüm bunların iş sonuçlarına yansıması nasıl olacaktır? Onu da bir sonraki yazımızda ele alalım.

Keyifli günler…

E-Öğrenme Projelerinde Ölçme Değerlendirme Çalışmaları Nasıl Yapılır? (2)

Merhaba. Konuyla ilgili ilk makalemde sonuçlarını ölçmek istediğiniz bir eğitimle ilgili, nasıl ölçümleme yapılabileceğiyle ilgili Kirk Patrick modelini paylaşmıştım.

Bu makalemdeyse ilk önce klasik bir eğitim planlama-yürütme projesi için bir takım yolları sizlerle paylaşıp, ardından bir e-öğrenme projesi için bunu nasıl yapabilirsiniz, bunun yollarını irdeleyeceğim.

 Kirkpatrick Modelini Eğitim Projelerinizde Nasıl Uygularsınız?

Kirk Patrick Learning Evaluation Model

Düzey 1: Tepki

Öncelikle katılımcıların tepkisini nasıl ölçeceğinize karar verin.

Şu temel soruları sorarak işe koyulun:

• Katılımcılar, eğitime ayırdıkları zamana değdiğini hissediyorlar mı?

• Başarılı geçtiğini düşünüyorlar mı?

• Eğitimin kuvvetli-zayıf yönleri nelerdi?

• Eğitim ortamını ve sunumu beğendiler mi?

• Katılımcıların farklı öğrenme stillerine göre uygun bir eğitim tekniği uygulanmış mıydı?

Şimdi bunları nasıl ölçebileceğinizi irdeleyelim: Bunu yapmanın en pratik yollarından biri katılımcı memnuniyet anketi dağıtmaktır. Fakat bununla yetinmeyip eğitim sırasında, genellikle eğitim ortalarında, sınıfa bir müddet girip katılımcıların beden dillerini gözlemlemeyi , eğitim sonrasında sözel geri bildirimlerini almayı da ihmal etmeyin.

Tüm bu bilgileri topladıktan sonra hepsini dikkatlice gözden geçirin. Ve size verilen geri bildirimlere göre bir sonraki oturum için neleri değiştirip-iyileştirebileceğinizi düşünün-tartışın.

Düzey 2: Öğrenme

Öğrenmeyi ölçmek için, işe neleri değerlendirmek gerektiğini tanımlayarak başlayın. Mesela bilgi düzeyindeki, becerilerindeki, davranışlarındaki değişiklikler gibi.

Genelde bunları eğitim öncesi ve sonrasında ölçmek, karşılaştırmalı veriler ürettiğinden, daha faydalıdır.

Peki bunları nasıl ölçebilirsiniz? Bilgi düzeylerini ölçmenin en kolay yolu ön ve son testler uygulamaktır. Becerilerdeki gelişim, en iyi iş başında gözlem ve yönetici raporlarıyla ortaya konabilir. Davranışsal değişikliklerde ise, ki düzey 3 olarak adlandırılan bölümde detaylandırılmıştır, katılımcılarla birebir mülakatlar ve sözel değerlendirme çalışmaları yapılması tavsiye edilir.

Düzey 3: Davranış

Davranışlardaki değişiklikleri-gelişimleri etkin şekilde ölçmek aslında hayli zorlu bir süreçtir. Bu, eğitim sonrası haftalar hatta ayları kapsayan bir süreçtir.

Şu temel soruları sorarak işe koyulun:

• Katılımcılar öğrendiklerinden neleri işlerinde uygulamaya başladılar?

• Katılımcılar öğrendiklerinin yüzde kaçını işlerinde uygulamaya uyguluyorlar?

• Katılımcılar öğrendikleri bilgi, beceri ve davranışları başkalarına da öğretebiliyorlar mı?

• Katılımcılar davranışları değiştirdiklerinin farkındalar mı?

Davranışsal ölçümlemenin en iyi yollarından biri katılımcıları zamana yayılı olarak gözlemek ve birebir mülakatla yaparak değerlendirmektir.

Akılda tutulması gereken, davranışın uygun durumlar-ortamlarda değişeceğidir. Mesela, sınıf eğitiminde etkin bir öğrenme süreci yaşanmış olabilir. Ancak kurumsal kültürünüz, katılımcıların davranış değişikliği gösterebileceği uygun ortamı sağlayamıyorsa, kişiden öğrendiklerinin doğrultusunda davranışlarını değiştirmesini beklememek gerekir.

Ayrıca unutulmaması gereken çok önemli bir nokta daha var: Takdir etme-ödüllendirme

Hangi yöntemleri kullanırsanız kullanın (sözlü, yazılı, ödüllendirme yazılımları kullanarak), çalışanın öğrendiklerini uygulaması için gereken desteği, iş sonuçlarına pozitif olarak yansıyan davranış değişiklikleri için takdiri, ödülü veya en azından bir “fark ediş”i esirgemeyin. Aksi taktirde kişi nasıl olsa yaptıklarının göz ardı edildiğini, bir fark yaratamadığını düşünüp, eski haline geri dönmeye eğilim gösterecektir.

Düzey 4: Sonuçlar

Hepsinin için içinde en maliyetli ve zaman alıcı düzey budur. Çünkü alınacak eğitimle ilgili çıktıları, faydaları, sonuçları tanımlamak, ve bunları eğitim sonrası uzun dönemde ölçecek yöntemleri-araçları belirlemek hayli zorlayıcıdır.

Eğitim ihtiyaç analizi sonucunda hedeflerinize uygun düşecek bazı sonuçları şöyle özetleyelim:

• Çalışan bağlılığında artış

• Üretimde artış

• Satışlarda artış

• Morallerde artış

• Bireysel ve grup motivasyonunda artış

• Firelerde azalış

• Hizmette kalite artışı

• Müşteri memnuniyetinde artış

• Çalışan şikâyetlerinde azalış

Yıllık eğitim planlarınızı yaparken, nihayetinde paranızı sokağa atıp atmadığınızı öğrenmek için tüm bu (ve benzeri) sonuçların ölçülmesi için de bir bütçe ayırmanız gerekir.

Aksi takdirde yapılan iş eksik, ölçemediğiniz için de geliştirilemez olarak kalacaktır.

Kirkpatrick Eğitim Değerlendirme Modeli E-Öğrenmeye Nasıl Uygulanabilir?

Şiimdi gelelim bu tip değerlendirmelerin e-öğrenmede nasıl uygulanabileceğine. Benim tuttuğum yöntemlerden biri, e-öğrenme konusunda Amerikalı uzmanlardan  biri olan Josh Bersin tarafından geliştirilen Bersin Beş Adım Yaklaşımı’dır.

Buna göre yukarıdaki gibi tanımlanan düzeyler, farklı başlıklar altında mikroskop altına alınmaktadır.

Bakış açımızı biraz değiştirerek konuya girelim:

E-öğrenme, salt eğitim maliyetlerini azaltmanın yollarından biri değildir. İş sonuçlarını etkilemek, iyileştirmek için de kullanılır. Eğer bir e-öğrenme projenizin iş sonuçlarınıza etkisini ve dolayısıyla bunu yapmaktaki amacınızı belirleyemiyorsanız, başa dönüp bu projeyi neden yaptığınızı gözden geçirmenizde fayda vardır.

Çünkü, şimdi sizinle bilinen ama tam olarak da dile getirilemeyen bir sırrı paylaşıyorum şimdi:

Aslında e-öğrenme bir eğitim aracı değildir. İş performansınızı geliştiren bir araç setidir. 

Yukarıda sıraladığımız iş sonuçlarını ölçmeden önce, e-öğrenme projenizin ne kadar ilgi gördüğünü, içinde sunulan eğitimlerin kişilerde yarattığı bilgi ve davranış değişikliklerini bilmeniz gerekiyor.

İşte Bersin Beş Adım Yaklaşımı tam da bunu yapıyor.

Peki nasıl? Bir sonraki yazımızda da bunu ele alacağız.

Keyifli günler diliyorum.

E-Öğrenme Projelerinde Ölçme Değerlendirme Çalışmaları Nasıl Yapılır? (1)

E-Öğrenmede Kirkpatrick Değerlendirme ModeliE-Öğrenme, kurumsal dünyada güçlü bir eğitim aracı olabilir. Düşük maliyetli bir eğitim yolu olsa da, e-öğrenmenin amacı yalnızca eğitim maliyetlerini düşürmek değil, aynı zamanda sürekli bir eğitim ve gelişim platformu yaratmak, iş sonuçlarına güç kazandırmaktır.

Sonuçta, paranızı altyapı ve içeriğe harcayacaksanız, sonuçlarını da görmek-ölçümlemek istersiniz. En azından ben öyle zannediyorum.

Paranızı harcamadan önce, eğitim planlarınızın hedeflerini saptayabildiğinizden emin olun. Neden klasik bir sınıf içi eğitim yerine, e-öğrenmeyi tercih edeceğinize dair net bir cevap bulamıyorsanız, bir adım geri gidip neden bir eğitime ihtiyaç duyduğunuza dair bir yanıt bulmanızın zamanı gelmiş demektir.

Peki, şimdi aklınızda bir hedef ve sonuç almak istediğiniz bir eğitiminiz var; bu sonuçları nasıl ölçeceksiniz? Eğitimin etkili olup olmadığını nasıl anlayacaksınız?

Eğitimde ROI (Yatırımın Geri Dönüşü) Hesaplanabilir mi?

Hem geleneksel hem de e-öğrenme eğitim metot, süreç ve yatırımlarını değerlendirmede kullanılan Kirkpatrick modeli adında denenmiş ve test edilmiş bir model vardır.

Bu model dört düzeyden oluşur:

Düzey 1: Tepki = Öğrenci-katılımcı nasıl hissediyor? Eğitimi beğendi mi? Tavsiye eder mi?
Düzey 2: Öğrenme = Öğrenci-katılımcı ne öğrendi? Bilgi ve kapasitesi gelişti mi?
Düzey 3: Davranış = Öğrenci-katılımcı bu bilgiyi işinde kullanıyor mu? Davranışlarına yansıtabildi mi?
Düzey 4: Sonuçlar = Eğitim sonrası öğrencinin-katılımcının performansı iş sonuçlarını ne kadar etkiledi?

JJ Phillips, sonraları bu modele bir 5. düzeyi eklemiştir: Yatırım geri dönüşü (ROI) = Bu düzey, Düzey 4 verilerinin parasal değere dönüştürülmesinin maliyet-fayda analizi olarak sunmuştur.

Bu model on yıllardır mevcut ve biz daha bilgisayar kullanmaya başlamadan çok öncesinde eğitim analizleri yapılırken kullanılıyordu. Ne var ki, bu model çoğunlukla öğrenci geri bildirimlerine bağlıdır. Bu tür bir bilgiyi kullanmaktaki problem de, bunun gerçek verilerden ziyade kolaylıkla duygularla çarpıtılabiliyor olmasıdır.

Bir eğitim, insan faktörü ön planda tutularak tasarlanmak zorundadır; ancak ederini-sonuçlarını hesaplarken, daha doğru anlayabilmek için, duygunun işin içinden çıkarılması gerekmektedir.

Bir düşünün: Hiç bir derse girdiğiniz ve eğitmeni sevmediğiniz oldu mu? Eğer sınıfınızda bir puan tablosu olsaydı, yalnızca öğretmenden hoşlanmadığınız için çok düşük not verme ihtimaliniz ne olurdu?

Bilgiden ziyade insanlara puan vermek doğaldır ve kolaydır; çünkü eğitmene karşı güçlü bir önyargı vardır.

Eğer bir eğitim süreci, derslerde öğrenci aktivitelerinin bilgisini tutmak gibi doğru unsurları içeriyorsa, biz de sonuçları daha az duygusal etkiyle ölçebiliriz.  Tabiki insan faktöründen tamamen bağımsız değil; çünkü dediğim gibi, biz bunu da göz önünde bulundurmak zorundayız.

O halde eğitim değerlendirmede yöntemimiz nasıl olacak? Kirkpatrick modelinden nasıl istifade edebiliriz?

Bir sonraki yazımda ilk önce klasik bir eğitim planlama-yürütme projesi için bir takım yolları sizlerle paylaşmak istiyorum.

Ardından bir e-öğrenme projesi için bunu nasıl yapabilirsiniz, bunun yollarını irdeleyeceğiz.

Öğrenerek, keyifli günler geçirmeniz dileğiyle…

E-Öğrenme İçerik Standartları Nelerdir?

Bilgi Kurdu Eöğrenme StandartlarıFarklı firmalar tarafından geliştirilen içeriklerin, öğrenme (eğitim) yönetim sistemlerinin (LMS) ve farklı eğitim yazılımlarının uyumlu çalışabilmesi için bunların belli standartlarda üretilmiş ve tasarlanmış olması gerekmektedir.

E-öğrenme teknolojileri alanında standart geliştiren belli başlı dört organizasyon vardır:

AICC [Aviation Industry CBT (Computer-based Training) Committee] – AICC

IMS Global (IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc.)

IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) LTSC (Learning Technology Standards Committee),

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning) – SCORM

Yaygın Olarak Kullanılan SCORM Standartlarının Detayları Nelerdir?

SCORM, Shareable Content Object Referans Model (Paylaşılabilir İçerik Nesne Referans Modeli) sözünün kısaltmasıyla oluşur. E-öğrenme içeriklerini farklı eğitim yazılımlarında kullanıcı verisi üreterek çalışması için, içerik yönetiminde bir iskelet oluşturur.
Teorik olarak bir SCORM nesnesi şu tanımlara sahip olmalıdır:

  • Kalıcılık (Durability):İçerik, maliyetini karşılayabilmesi için tutarlı olduğu sürece kalıcı olmalıdır.
  • Taşınabilirlik (Portability):İçerik bir sistemden başka bir SCORM destekli sisteme taşına bilmelidir.
  • Tekrar Kullanılabilirlik (Reusablity):İçerik tekrar tekrar kullanılabilir olmalıdır. Modüller farklı şekillerde düzenlenebilir olmalıdır.
  • Çok Yüzlülük (Interoperablity):İçerik bir sistemden başka bir sisteme taşındığında da çalışıyor olmalıdır.
  • Erişilebilirlik (Accessiblity):İçerik, içerik kütüphanesinden erişilebilir olmalıdır. Bu da belirli metadataların içerik paketine eklenme zorunluluğunu getirir.

Pratik olarak anlatacak olursak:

Diyelim ki bir DVD satın aldınız. İzlemek için sabırsızlandığınız DVD’nin, eve vardığınızda Sony DVD oynatıcınızda düzgün görünüp görünmeyeceğini düşünmesiniz. Çünkü bilirsiniz ki DVD oynatıcı markanız ne olursa olsun, satın aldığınız DVD’ler mutlaka oynatıcıda sorunsuz çalışacaktır. Bunun sebebi DVDlerin belli bir endüstriyel standartlar gözetilerek üretilmiş olmasıdır.

İşte SCORM standardı da e-öğrenme içeriklerinin, bu standarda sahip öğrenme yönetim sistemlerinde sorunsuz çalışmasını sağlar.

Peki E-öğrenme İçeriklerinde Neden SCORM Standardı Kullanalım?

SCORM, farklı platformlarda paylaşılabilecek, çevrimiçi (online) eğitim içerikleriyle ilgili veriler üretmek için ortaya konmuştur. Bu verilerin nasıl üretileceğini modeller ve tanımlar.
Eğer kullanıcılarınızın e-öğrenme içeriklerini ne zaman, ne kadar, kaç kere izlediğini, içindeki testlerden kaç puan aldığını bilmek istiyorsanız SCORM standardı ile üretilmiş bir içerik ve bu standarda sahip bir öğrenme yönetim sistemi seçmeniz gerekir.

İki tip SCORM standardı var: SCORM 1.2 ve SCORM 2004 (SCORM 1.3)

Peki Hangisini Seçelim?

Bize en doğru tercih 1.2 versiyonu olmasıdır. Çünkü SCORM 1.2 Ekim 2001’de yayınlandığında sektöre çok büyük bir rahatlık getirdi. Bu rahatlık üretilen içeriklerin farklı platformlara entegre edilmesi süresinin kısalması ve üretim maliyetlerinin düşmesine neden oldu.

Bu sayede dünyada ve Türkiye’de iş yapan pek çok  e-öğrenme firması, bu standardı benimsedi ve kısa sürede az bir zahmetle üretilebilen, hatasız çalışan bir içerik üretim modeli yarattılar.

SCORM 1.2, Bilgi Kurdu‘nun da katkıda bulunduğu yeni bir model olan SCORM 2.0 olarak adlandırabileceğimiz TinCanApi yaygınlaşana kadar, eğer yapabilirse,  endüstriyel standart olarak uzun yıllar kullanılacaktır.

2004 versiyonundaki tek farklılık, kullanıcıların içerik içinde gezinmesini belli kurallara bağlayabileceğiniz bir modelin tanımlanmış olmasıdır. Ancak önerilen bu model, adaptasyon zorlukları, SCORM 1.2’ye göre daha karmaşık veri seti ve yoruma açık programlama alt yapısı ile uyum problemlerini beraberinde getirerek kullanımı konusunda riskler yaratmıştır.
