PIAF - no regrets

I don't often have cause to make about Italy artists on this blog site. It is a fact that, at a lot of length of writing, I am on my way to Lyon to run a work store on mixed studying, but otherwise the published text is tenuous to say the least, as you will see.

I have been enhancing my technique for the style of mixed solutions for near to ten years now, analyzing it against many different real-world problems. I feel secure with the techniques I have determined on for gathering details about the needs of a particular situation, and for the way in which options made about methods and media.

But until lately I did not believe it was possible that you follow a typical series within mixed solutions, an organization of levels that could provide efficiently in many different conditions. However, what I found when I seemed back over many types was that efficient solutions seemed that you follow a certain style of four levels. I battled to find headings for these levels that would apply to both official and non-formal therapies using several methods, but I'm enthusiastic about what I've determined on. You would ever think I was amused when it also published out a name, PIAF.

Preparation: In this level your aim is to make the student for a efficient probability to learn. You sometimes contains activities to find out sections of need, set up goals, cope with any drawbacks prep-requisite details, existing learners to each other and produce an summarize of what is to use.

Input: This level represents the primary official aspect of your system. This is when you do things like run sessions, provide on-job coaching, make available primary studying material, and so on.

Application: In this level, learners put what they found into action, whether near to the job or through individual and group tasks. With larger applications, Reviews and Program are likely to design as the student developments through several sections.

Follow-up: It is very unlikely that you will have acquired your goals absolutely at the end of the Program level. The follow-up level allows your solution to become an on-going process rather than a one-off event. You will look to provide functions such as coaching and elements that the student can availability if required. As the soundness changes from ‘courses’ to ‘resources’, the follow-up level will become gradually popular.

PIAF is not too challenging - I'm sure that, given the capability, you'd have come up with something similar - but that does not mean it is good verdict. Most workplace studying therapies have just one level - Reviews - usually a classroom course or a aspect of e-learning. They are converted off from truth in which the staff member functions. They battle for making an improvement, even when - at time - they are exciting and enjoyable. What PIAF does is to put official Reviews in its place - just one step in an on-going student journey that will most likely also include of non-formal, on-demand and experiential elements.

In following material this 7 days I will explain more about PIAF and how it might provide to various kinds of (mostly top-down) workplace studying therapies. I'm sceptical if it has program with any type of educational developing but I'll let you be the evaluate of that. What I'm anticipating is that, when it is used properly, you will have less regret about therapies that start promisingly then fizzle out. Like Edith Piaf, you'll be able to say 'Non, je ne feel sorry rien'.
