1st Three School of PACT Video Podcasts Now Available.

The School of PACT – is “in VIDEO PODCAST session” – anytime you need it/ want it/ gotta have it!

We begin the series with a Podcast Introduction to The PACT Processes. Then a Podcast overview of the 4 Phases of a CAD effort. Then another Podcast with an additional level of detail about “7 Steps for processing of the analysis data” in the Phase 3 – Design – DTM: Design Team Meeting.

All are presented in Blog Post form: with instructional design wrapped around the Video Podcast in terms of preparation for viewing, and what one might do post-viewing. To learn and master and someday coach others. And all are available on Google Video so one might download their own personal copies.

There are over 12 planned in the series.

PACT is: ISD/ ID/ SAT – Instructional Systems Design/ Instructional Design/ Systematic Approach to Training. PACT includes and is much more than A-D-D-I-E.

PACT is based on a data logic, reducing the wasted efforts at unfocused analysis and design and development – reducing/eliminating “unnecessary costs” – both first costs and life cycle costs.

My book: lean-ISD covers the PACT Processes for T&D/ Learning/ Knowledge Management – and is available as a free 404-page PDF at http://www.eppic.biz/

A PDF copy of the first national presentation of the CAD methods using a Group Process, from 1985, is available here.

Video Podcasts Now On Google Video For Downloading

You may have already seen the 1st Blog Post and Video Podcast of the School of PACT series – 13 planned – and with many, many additional relevant topics/tasks for me to tackle regarding the PACT Processes for T&D/ Learning/ Knowledge Management.

I will put out a new one every 2-4 weeks- or more. I am also intending on posting them on Google Video as I Blog about them – the Blog Postings intended to both present the Video Podcast – and to frame a “Learning Process/Progression/Path” – both adopt-able and adapt-able – as needed of course – for you – the reader/learner/potential Performer.

I use Google so that everyone that wants one can have a personal copy. I treasure my copies of old videos (Rummler, Rackham, etc.) and audios – I have Rackham speaking on SPIN from 1981 somewhere. They and others always freely shared. So shall I.

The list below will be constantly updated – as this post will be used as “link transition points” to both those Google Videos and the Pursuing Performance Blog (PP Blog) Postings – from a link on the Blog’s static but active portion of the layout template.

Note that there will be “other video links” here on topics related to performance-based Instructional Design, Instructional Systems Design, Systematic Approach to Training, ID, ISD, SAT, etc. from myself and from others.

In most-recent-first order:
Videos from Guy W. Wallace…

School of PACT 02b – 7 CAD Design Steps – at Google Video – on the PP Blog – next released Video Podcast in the School of PACT series – focused on the the detailed “7 Design Steps” used to “process the PACT analysis data” in the Design Team Meeting in Phase 3 of CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design – of the PACT Processes for T&D/ Learning/ Knowledge Mangement. This particular Video Podcast augments Video Podcast #2 – CAD.

School of PACT 02 – CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design – at Google Video – on the PP Blog – 2nd in the series of at least 13 Video Podcasts planned. CAD is the macro-design level of PACT’s 3 levels of ISD design. CAD is the systems engineering/architectural set of ISD/ID methods for developing a T&D Path/ Learning Continuum for one or more Target Audiences. CADs lead to MCD efforts (the ADDIE-level of PACT). This Podcast on CAD will be augmented by several other Podcasts with topics closely related/intertwined with the CAD level of PACT, to provide more details.

Changing Tires on a Moving Truck – at Google Video – on PP Blog Post – please indulge my silliness with this 1:42 (m:s) Video that plays out some thought given to “parallel processing” for some types of change. Where you cannot stop, change, and then restart. As clients stated their challenge to be akin to “changing the tires on a moving truck.” Probably a total waste of your time for most of you – unless you plan/manage multiple workstreams of systems in transition and change. It’s how I might represent a divide-and-conquor approach to complex change.

Enterprise Wiki Architecture – at Google Videoon PP Blog Post – thoughts about how I’d architect the structure of wikis for every process, for every performer’s use. 7:42 (m:s).

School of PACT 01 – PACT Introat Google Video on PP Blog Post – The first in the series. 10:00 (m:s). Overview of the 5 methodology-sets of PACT, the customer-teams and ISD-roles, and the resources available.

Videos from others/of others – that are my personal favorites – and that I’d like to share with others interested in PACT…

Dr. Richard E. Clark and Allen Munro – Learning Research at the Center for Cognitive Technologiesweb link – Part of the Rossier School of Education Brown Bag Series, Richard Clark and Allen Munro discuss topics such as: cognitive load theory, instructional design, direct instruction, cognitive task analysis, creative technology, see one, do one, teach one, mental simulation, tactical planning/instructional/assessment tools. 1 hour and 2 minutes. Excellent! From May 2008.

Dr. Ruth Clark – Leveraging the Virtual Classroom for Effective Learningweb link – 1 hour 18 minutes from Dr. Clark – part of the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus (UMBC) series of ISD- November 2008. Excellent!

Clive Shepherd – Welcome to the Virtual Classroomweb link – An excellent 9+minute introduction to the basics of Virtual Classrooms – November 2007. Excellent!

Thiagi- Rapid Instructional Design – web link PP Blog Post on this Video Resource – from 2008 from UMBC University of Maryland Baltimore Campus. 1:47 (hour:minutes). Excellent!

Neil Rackham – Instructional Design Criteria web link – PP Blog Post on this Video Resource – from 1981. 10 design criteria are talked through by Neil for MTEC. Excellent!

Geary Rummler – Performance-Based Training web link – PP Blog Post on this Video Resource – from 1981. Another MTEC video. Excellent!

Performance Competence By Design – Not Learning By Chance

When Informal Learning – Learning By Chance – was not a viable business option…

CAD – Curriculum Architecture Design efforts are typically large scale, or just critically important process targets, where the goal is to model ideal performance requirements in terms of Process, the Areas of Performance within that “process” and its one-or-many Outputs and their Measures and the associated Tasks and Roles/Responsibilities.

Once that “Performance Competence” has been defined by a team of Master Performers…they continue by systematically deriving all of the knowledge/skills, using 17 categories.

Next, existing T&D is assessed for its re-use purposes in this CAD.

After a “gate review” with the Project Steering Team to review the data and seek approval or changes to it before it is used in the systematic Design process for this level of ISD, the Design Team meets to develop a T&D Path of T&D Events and Modules (books and chapters). That designs identifies the T&D Path…or Path with many mini-menus arranged visually to help communicate the T&D/ Learning/ Knowledge Management learning continuum…

…that is always “as flexible as feasible and as rigid as required” to meet the “just-in-time” needs of the varied learners/Performers in a job, process team, etc., to become Performance Competentnot to learn some things.

My experience-base in this area of ISD comes from 74 CAD projects since 1982. The full list follows. Quick overviews of each project are available on my web site at http://www.eppic.biz/
