Q: What Data Feeds a performance-based Lesson Map for ISD/LXD?

A: Performance Data and Enabling Knowledge/Skills Data – at a minimum.

Additionally – existing T&D/L&D Content Assessment for ReUse purposes might also feed the Lesson Map.

I created what soon became the “Lesson Map” format back in 1990 for an ISD Consulting gig with Illinois Bell on Labor Relations for New Supervisors, to focus a team of Master Performers & Other Subject Matter Experts in a Facilitated Group Process (FGP) for Design after a FGP to conduct a performance-based Instructional Analysis effort.

My client had seen me use the FGP on 2 prior CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design efforts – and they liked how it engaged the Master Performers & Other Subject Matter Experts – and built the quality in – and sorted the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, as Master Performers & Other Subject Matter Experts typically don’t like extraneous, seductive details – although they would never call them that.

And – it’s ALL ABOUT THE DATA – its Accuracy, Completeness, and Appropriateness – regardless of how you generated and validated it. I’ve conducted Analysis and Design via Individual Interviews and produced my outputs – that just takes longer and is more expensive – when the FGP is feasible.

The Data

Modeling Mastery Performance and Systematically Deriving the Enablers for Performance Improvement – by Guy W. Wallace, CPT – Chapter 11 of the Handbook of Human Performance Technology – 3rd Edition – 2006.  This methodology was first published in this 1984 article in ISPI’s (then NSPI’s) PIJ in November 1984.

The FGP – Facilitated Group Process

Two articles on the FGP from 1984…

CAD – Training Mag – 1984 – 6 page PDF – the first publication about Curriculum Architecture Design via a Facilitated Group Process – published in Training Magazine in September 1984. Original manuscript (30 pages) – How to Build a Training Structure That Won’t Keep Burning Down.

Models and Matrices- NSPI PIJ -1984 – 5 page PDF – the first publication of the performance and enabler analysis methods for ISD using a Facilitated Group Process, from NSPI’s (ISPI’s) Performance & Instruction Journal, November 1984.

Books On This

My Last 3 Books dealt with the Analysis Data and Lesson Mapping. While a bit overlapping – or rather reinforcing – they each had a different focus – but all are on performance-based Instruction.

See all of my books – I’ve published 17 since 1994 – on my Amazon Authors Page:

They are all on performance-based ISD – or Performance Improvement – Beyond But Including Instruction.
