Video 1 of 7: L&D’s Pivot to Performance – Ken Yates

David James and I kicked-off our 7-part Webinar series this past Wednesday.

We experienced a little technical difficulty in this first of seven videos – and our video only recorded me, one of the hosts, instead of our guest. So we put a slide up instead of a video focused on me. We’ll do better next time.

L&D’s Pivot to Performance

The aim of this series is to highlight the important shift that some L&D leaders and practitioners have made in order to more predictably and reliably affect individual and organisational performance, achieving much more as a consequence.

In this inaugural video of the L&D Pivot to Performance Series for 2021 – David James and Guy Wallace interview Ken Yates, EdD, about his approach to Instructional/Training/Learning “Analysis/Discovery.”

Note: in North America we tend to call it Analysis – and in Europe it’s often referred to as Discovery.

Ken Yates

Ken is a Professor of Clinical Education in the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California. He is also Co-Director of the Center for Human Applied Reasoning and IOT, a joint center of the Rossier School of Education and the Viterbi School of Engineering to combine cutting-edge cognitive science and education research with emerging Internet of Things technologies to revolutionise personalised learning. His research focuses on the use of Cognitive Task Analysis methods to capture the underlying knowledge and skills that experts use to solve complex problems and the design of instruction to effectively teach this expertise to others. He is also interested in how information communication technologies can be used to deliver instruction more efficiently to a wider audience.

This video is 54:43 minutes in length.

What’s up next?

We’ll be having another conversation on the same topic on the 6th October and every 2 weeks until the 15th December, as you’ll see in the image below. Join us for free and get involved in the conversation:…

We’ll hope to see you there.
