manageable and engaging

  • to be able to assess learning
  • to provide a tool for consistent delivery
  • to give time for learning and reflection
activity
Activity
  • Think about your induction process and identify any issues you need to address
issues we needed to resolve
Issues we needed to resolve:
  • Paper based
  • daunting
  • line manager reliant
  • inconsistent delivery
  • instruction rather than engagement
  • little assessment of learning
  • no consideration given to how people learn

Activity:

Pick one of these issues and say how you

would go about solving it

activity19
Activity

What other modern technologies could be used?

and

How can we employ them?

evaluation of a vle to deliver staff induction
Evaluation of a VLE to deliver staff induction:

Feedback from one new member of staff:

‘The Moodle platform is ideal for staff induction with facilities for expanding and including links to further useful material it should be exploited to the full’

what a vle offers
What a VLE offers:
  • allows information to be presented in a variety of formats
  • provides the facility for engagement and assessment
  • tailored programmes as line managers can dictate the priorities and modules they want their staff to undertake
  • enables the line manger to assess learning and understanding
  • self paced learning for the inductee
  • a reference tool that can be referred back to
what a vle can t do
What a VLE can’t do:
  • replace the human touch
  • Line managers now spend time in feeding back rather than instructing
  • Buddying introduced to provide informal support
  • Still plenty of ‘on the job’ training required
  • Work Journals to record reflective learning
list of recommendations based on lessons learnt
List of recommendations based on lessons learnt:
  • A VLE should be used as part of a blended approach to learning
  • begin by reviewing your current process
  • choose the right format for you
  • agree the structure of the programme prior to commencing work on the VLE
  • make as interactive and engaging as possible using a variety of formats to maintain interest
  • try to ensure that you have a good level of technical skills and abilities in your team prior to setting up the VLE
list of recommendations based on lessons learnt24
List of recommendations based on lessons learnt:
  • be prepared to create your own materials including video clips and photos
  • set aside time to develop the VLE
  • engage with your line managers as they will be the ones delivering the programme
  • get a basic programme in place and then add to it. It will never be finished and will constantly need updating!
plans for the future
Plans for the future:
  • Continue to develop modules
  • add further assessments and activities to increase interaction
  • include more innovative delivery i.e. Podcasts, training videos
  • introduce ePortfolios to record learning and development
  • set up a staff induction blog to the wider library community
  • look at how Moodle can be employed to support staff training in general
  • monitor, evaluate and review.
