An employee in a new role is performing poorly. This documents the problem diagnosis, the desired outcomes, and the strategies for improving performance.
An investigation into the factors that impact whether or not older workers seek training. Unpublished manuscript.
A newly created instructional design unit struggles to develop interactive and engaging courses within its determined time frame. Analysis indicates the unit’s members know how to convert an ILT course to a fully online environment, but lack the “technical skills and/or depth of knowledge” on the LMS to function as desired. Theory- and research-based strategies are proposed for improving the unit’s poor performance.
