Vårt siste medlemsmøte "Best of e-learning" ble en stor suksess, med over 20 presentasjoner og mer enn 140 påmeldte deltakere. Det gjorde dette møtet til trolig det største e-læringstreffet i Norge på veldig mange år. Vi fikk se og oppleve stor variasjon av e-læringsprogrammer og vi fikk alle god inspirasjon til å bruke sommeren til å tenke hvordan vi kan bruke noen av de virkemidlene vi fikk se i våre egne prosjekter.

I vår uhøytidlige avstemming over ”Best in show” ble resultatet slik:

         1: Transform Learning
         2: HyperInteraktiv
         3: Kikora  

VI ØNSKER ALLE VÅRE MEDLEMMER EN RIKTIG GOD SOMMER

How Meaningful Are Your Learning Evaluations?
Manage Smarter (05/29/09) Hawthorne, Dan


Post-training evaluations are most effective when they ask specific, thoughtful questions relevant to the exercises and materials covered during the classes. As one training manager points out, it is unfair to expect valuable feedback from employees when they are supplied with a generic questionnaire form that fails to ask valuable and challenging questions. Here are some sample questions that model how an evaluation can be relevant and thought-provoking for the trainee: "Which training scenario applied most to your job, the role plays or group discussions?", and "Do you believe the use of the MODE model of sales will glean stronger responses from customers?" Standardized questions produce vague and unhelpful answers, and give trainees the impression that the organization does not have a real interest in learners' responses and training outcomes. Researchers recommend focusing on some key points when analyzing the effectiveness of training and its relationship to employee retention: Are trainees satisfied with the employer, and does the company put its stated values into practice?; Are trainees satisfied in their current jobs, and do they see the potential for future growth?; Do employees have all the tools they need to implement what they have learned?; and, Are employees aware of upper management's involvement with and support of the training program?
