HPT Video 2022 – Brent Schlenker

I’ve known Brent through Social Media for 10 years or so, and I have been a guest twice on his and Chris Van Wingerden’s popular Video/Audio Podcast – IDIODC – Instructional Designers in Offices Drinking Coffee.

I found his stories in this video fascinating. He and I both came from a Radio/TV educational background. While my path took me into Analysis and Design of Instruction, his path took him through Instructional Delivery Technology – and quite frankly, that’s where the real action, excitement, and engagement is. And has been. For decades. And he talks us through that journey, his journey.

Guy’s HPT Video Series

The HPT Video Series … formerly known as 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 their HPT Practices in the workplace and academia.

The full set of videos – over 160 – may be found indexed and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement.

As a former colleague has 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 might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

This Series Has Evolved Since 2008

These videos were first posted on Google Video, then they were moved to Blink, and now they may all be found on YouTube. And my name for them has changed as well…
