effective-learning-feedbackWELL!

We recorded a show, or so we thought.  What you will hear is a 38 second clip38 second clip from Paul Signorelli, who thought he was able to restart the recording. But NO!  (Oh, TalkShoe, your new platform needs improvements.)

And the fact that you can’t hear our conversation is a good thing.  The sound was horrible with both an echo and what sounded like “wind”.  (Thank you, TalkShoe.)

In the portion that you cannot year,  Diane Huckabay, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Paul Signorelli discussed the article:

Laura Reynolds, “20 Ways to Provide Effective Feedback for Learning,” TeachThought, 12/6/2018.

We talked primarily about giving feedback to learners. We acknowledged that when feedback is connected with a grade or a performance review, the learner may push back on it.  Diane gave the suggestion of peer feedback, and we had begun talking about how to teach learners to give feedback, when we decided that the sound was too horrid to continue.

As Paul said later, it was the best episode you will never hear!

We plan on coming back to this topic, and article, in two weeks.  We hope you’ll join us then!

New Year goals 2019On the first show of 2019 were Aaron Blumberg, Maurice Coleman, and Paul Signorelli. The show occasionally attracts a distruptor, whose behavior got the person kicked off the call.  New people are always welcome, but people who just want to be disruptive are not.

Today’s topic grow out of an article written by Paloma Cantero-Gomez, in Forbes, entitled Make Use of These Top 7 tips to Achieve Your Goals in 2019.”  We focus heavily on goals at the start of the new calendar year, but what we need to do to achieve our goals are activities which occur every day.  Those activities include, for example, deciding at the end of a training session what we need to do next.
