The Role of Organizations in Lifelong Learning and Development

The Role of Organizations in Lifelong Learning and Development

The above results indicate that organizations in the Czech Republic realize the need for further training and development of their employees but they are not willing to spend funds on them, which also corresponds to the most commonly used education methods, which are self‑learning, lectures and e‑learning. As previously discussed, the lowest number of days of vocational training is provided to managers of organizations. This fact is confirmed also by the use of the method of a development center in personal development of employees, which is used by only 2.22 % of the polled organizations. Conversely, organizations focus most on participation in team projects, development plans and participation in the fulfillment of tasks in various functional areas of the organization. Research studies by Judrups et al. (2015) also point out that organizations currently do not use the knowledge of their employees to an extent allowing them to achieve their strategic objectives and achieve competitive advantages. They also note that especially large organizations often face problems in the development of human resources because they lack uniform criteria for the evaluation of employees and linking of evaluation results with further training and development.

Determinants of learning and development initiatives

Determinants of learning and development initiatives

The word L&D had been mutually agreed to explain the appropriate process of human resource training and development, employees training and development (Harrison, 2005). The term learning and development had long been a debate. Commonly the terminologies being used are varied among authors. Some may like to call it training and development, or the term employees learning and development, while and some researchers have used workplace learning, work based learning or even work based training. According to CIPD (2005), learning and development refers to an organizational process involves integration of learning and development process, operations and relationship. The results from its effective implementation are enhanced organizational effectiveness and sustainability and enhanced personal competence, adaptability, and employability for the individual. It is therefore a critical business process, whether in for-profit or not-for-profit organizations.

Integrating Learning Development into the Student Experience

Integrating Learning Development into the Student Experience

to workloads. The completed template can highlight any omission or repetition and signpost opportunities to embed learning development into the curriculum, providing a more seamless student experience, with skills input from the most appropriate source at the most appropriate time. In analysing the templates, it was apparent that input on skills development was heavily frontloaded with most of the teaching being done in the first year. There was some input in the third year as students approached a major piece of work, such as a dissertation, but in the second year it was clear that although skills were assessed, they were rarely taught. This finding links to research done by Grump (2007) and Schreiner (2010) who found that second year students often experienced particular problems of stress and lack of engagement. Using the templates appeared to highlight gaps and areas of repetition and inefficiency, and the project leaders are now working to promote a more holistic approach to curriculum design.

Distance learning and LIS professional development

Distance learning and LIS professional development

predominant in learning for personal development. An effective distance learning course will involve elements of all these, but it is important that the students’ expectations match this. Students who come expecting mainly to memorise and perhaps to understand may be confused when invited to apply and develop themselves; those who come with application and personal development in mind will certainly be frustrated by a course operated only at the level of memorisation (Rowntree 2000). A part of distance learning may often be helping students to consider and revise their ideas of learning itself.

Organizational Development Interventions In Learning Organizations

Organizational Development Interventions In Learning Organizations

The purpose of this article was to demonstrate that organizational development interventions in key areas of learning organizations assist to further develop such organizations because they are open systems and accustomed to planned changes. Therefore, their resistance to planned developmental changes is limited in comparison to non-learning organizations that are not accustomed to this process. The ultimate goal of organization development is to make the organization more open and more adaptive through increases in capability and potential in order for it to continue making such planned change efforts on an action orientation basis. Learning organizations are viable and vital means for developing an organization’s culture of high performance learners who become transformed people much better adapted to get results that affect the bottom line and the quality of life in their organizations. The author of this article focused organizational development interventions on a number of key areas in learning organizations which are: human resources policies and procedures, evaluation of human resources, structure and design, training and development of human resources, communication, and leadership. In this article, the above cited areas are referred to as concentrations. The organizational development intervention process consists of the diagnosis in order to identify the elements to be evaluated in the areas of concentration; the presentation of the results of the diagnoses in proposals for the implementation of the results; and the implementation through planned change efforts.

Teacher development in e-learning environments

Teacher development in e-learning environments

With the advance of information and communication technology (ICT) and the growth of interest in the use of the Internet for education, teachers are now working in new online environments. In line with this situation, there is great need for teacher development in the integration of ICT into teaching and learning activities and in the design, implementation and evaluation of e- learning. In productive and practical ways, computer-mediated communica- tion (CMC) can help teachers build and apply their knowledge, collaborate in their learning with fellow teachers, and reflect on their classroom practice. This chapter addresses the issue of how the features of CMC foster teacher development in terms of communication, collaboration and reflection. Exam- ples are taken from CMC activities employed for a computer-assisted language learning (CALL) course in a postgraduate program. It is suggested that teacher development can be effectively promoted by CMC with interactive communi- cation, professional collaboration and critical reflection in situated contexts.

The Development of Physics Learning Materials to Improve Students’ Learning Results

The Development of Physics Learning Materials to Improve Students’ Learning Results

On the other hand, Hanin, et al. (2011) & Kahar (2017) also state that the significant learning result improvement will also bring impact on individuals’ development because it will be followed by students' motivation to learn. Related to the aspect of learning result improvement, students in general experienced improvement in their learning result after the delivery of developed teaching material as indicated by the the t-test = 50,160 and t table =2,042 with the significance level of 0,000. In line with that, Hernawan, et al. (2012) & Serevina (2018) explain that the teaching process using teaching material can facilitate students to get more learning experiences. Learning experiences are related to a substance that will be delivered. Therefore, to obtain learning experience, teachers should design a teaching model or teaching materials to keep the effectiveness of activities in the classroom.

In an educational environment, faculty and staff members globally are seeking ways to utilize software programs to improve professional development, leadership development training and the delivery of instruction and assessment of students’ work. Students today are seeking ways to self-check their work before submission to faculty members. Therefore, needed programs and technology tools are a must to have today at the university or for student to access from their own home environment at any place around the world. In order to ensure that the university has the support from key top leaders, the leadership team at various levels at the university should make sure that the infrastructure needs are in place to accommodate or support blended learning programs. It is important to have at the maintenance stage blended learning teaching programs that are relevant and meaningful for the workforce economy. Therefore, curriculum technology programs should be mapped out properly, strategically, updated and improvements should be clear for all ongoing planning and implementation stages and evaluation of all new or improved programs (Welch, 2007). Blended learning programs should be updated within a three year period or less in order to stay current with the needs of industry in the public and private sector. Regardless of the instructional methods used, all college programs should show quality in their content and delivery. Faculty use of time wisely, plus surveying faculty and students to secure feedback of program satisfactory use of software for blended learning should take place by the leadership team at least twice a year (Mandernach, 2005). The leadership team at the university should support quality blended learning programs by providing needed resources to faculty, students and staff. It is essential that students are receiving quality services.

A Design and Development of the Learning Contents Management based on the Personalized Online Learning

A Design and Development of the Learning Contents Management based on the Personalized Online Learning

In order to procure contents compatibility, LCMS uses the SCORM (Shareable Contents Object Reference Model) standard. SCORM offers standardization standards which enable the sharing and re-usage of online contents and both the compatibility of LMS servers and interaction between online contents systems [11]. Additionally, in order to enable the searching of contents registration, management, and the contents themselves, LOM (Learning Object Metadata) suggests certain standards, while LCMS and the development of contents distribution standards are utilized [12]. For online education services in South Korea, SCORM is the recommended and required standard. If LCMS which has been designed based on SCORM standards is used, then when videos are being viewed, such functions as various learning events, states, progress rates can be measured, and various kinds of useful information can be offered to the learner [13]. The interaction and compatibility of LMS and contents is communicated through API, and the types of API are shown below in Table 1.
