HPT Video Matinee with Dave Ferguson

HPT Video Practitioner: Dave Ferguson

This video was shot in 2018. It is 1:21:49 hours/minutes in length.

This Video Matinee Series will be published on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the duration of 2019.

The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia. The full set of videos may be found and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.

T&D: There are No Renaissance Men and Women in ISD Anymore

It’s Just Too Much

There are No Renaissance Men and Women in ISD anymore – for there is just too much to know & master.

The Awareness, Knowledge and Skills required are too vast and too varied to expect any one person to wear all of the “hats” required for any one or set of complex ISD projects.

IMO it takes an ISD Team of experts/expertise working hand-in-hand w/ the client & their handpicked Master Performers to create & deploy authentic & impacting Instruction.

T&D: Don’t Inadvertently Create a Spaced Learning Tsunami

Sometimes the Job Itself Will Provide Enough Retrieval Practice 

So sometimes Spaced Learning isn’t required.

Slide1.PNG

When Tasks are required to be performed – but not often enough to create long term memory of what and how – and it’s not practical for the performer to follow a Job Aid/Performance Support – and memorization of what to do and how to do it is really required – Spaced Learning can be extremely beneficial.

Just be careful to not inadvertently overwhelm some learner with a tsunami of Spaced Learning interruptions to their workflow. Incremental design of T&D/L&D can sometimes do that.

T&D: Remembering Dr. Susan Meyer Markle (1928-2008)

I Remember Hearing About Dr. Markle in the early 1980s

Although I don’t think I ever met her personally at any NSPI or ISPI Conferences that I started attending in 1980.

She was renown for having written “Good Frames and Bad” (1969) which was impactful to those doing Programmed Instruction in the 1970s – and thought years later to be applicable to early elearning. At least, that’s what I recall.

Slide1

From Wikipedia

Considered a luminary of B.F. Skinner’s teaching machine innovation, Dr. Markle worked as a researcher at his Harvard laboratory from 1956 to 1960.

Characterized as one of the “godmothers” of programmed instruction and machine-based training, Dr. Markle was highly trained in her field, and had a long and distinguished career. Some of her accomplishments are:

  • Researcher at B.F. Skinner’s laboratory from 1956 to 1960
  • Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
  • Professor of Psychology and Director of Instructional Resources – University of Illinois at Chicago, 1965-1993
  • Director of Programing for the Center for Programed Instruction, Inc.
  • Member of the National Society of Performance and Instruction
  • Member of the International Society for Performance Improvement

Some of Her Writings

Teaching Machines and Programed Instruction – The Harvard Teaching Machine Project:
The First Hundred Days – Teaching Machines and Programed Instruction – The Harvard Teaching Machine Project – The First Hundred Days – Susan M Markle

This is one of the support papers for “To Improve Learning: a 1970 Report to the President and the Congress of the United States by the Commission on Instructional Technology” – PROGRAMING AND PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION – Susan Meyer Markle 1970

More From Wikipedia

An avid lover of jazz music, Dr. Markle served as board member and president of the Jazz Institute of Chicago. Not only did she love the music, but she was in fact a jazz scholar and video editor of Jazz Times magazine

From Her Obituary in the Chicago Tribune

Susan Meyer Markle, a past president of the Jazz Institute of Chicago, began frequenting jazz clubs in Boston in the 1950s and became friends with some of the genre’s legends.

Dr. Markle was a research fellow at Harvard University, working with well-known behavioral psychologist B.F. Skinner, when she started hanging out at Boston’s Storyville club.

There and at other jazz outposts, she struck up a friendship with Duke Ellington, members of the Modern Jazz Quartet and others, her son said.

She was in the crowd for Ellington’s legendary performance at the Newport Jazz Festival on July 7, 1956, her son said.

Dr. Markle received a doctorate in psychology and taught at UCLA before coming to UIC in 1965. Her specialty was instructional research and design, about which she wrote several books. She took emeritus status in 1993.

A scholar of jazz with a vast collection of jazz records and laser discs of notable performances, Dr. Markle was video editor of Jazz Times magazine and a board member and then president of the Jazz Institute of Chicago in the 1990s.
