The Foundations Courses
Does this sound like you?
~ You're a passionate professional with a tonne of content you know can change lives, but don't have a great deal of teaching 'qualifications'.
~ Your top priority is that your clients achieve their goals. You're passionate about your field and the way your content can change lives, so the last thing you want to be known for is a shoddy learning experience.
~ You're overwhelmed with the amount of content you have and dont know what to do with it. You know there is a product or a range of products you could create and sell, but you have no idea where to start.
What will you learn?
Learn how to: evaluate, review and reflect on your teaching or training, in a way that leads to improved outcomes, sharper focus & higher client engagement. Continuously improve your content and delivery.What this helps you do, is become better at delivering your content every time, as you learn and grow from the feedback that you get from your clients.
In this course there is an introductory lesson, followed by 3 full lessons complete with tutorials, matching podcasts and worksheets. Lessons 4.2 and 4.3 DO NOT have video tutorials, and there's a very good reason for that which you'll find out in the first lesson. There is also a bonus guest interview with an expert on evaluation and review in adult education.
4.0 Introduction to Continuous Improvement
Why bother with this course? With this short tutorial, you'll get an overview of the three parts of this short course and why the three key components of continuous improvement, are so important to creating a referrals based business that simply sells itself. Learn why Evaluation, Review and Reflection - the three key ingredients to continuously improving your content and delivery, are the keys to solid small business growth.
In this lesson you will learn how to get feedback from your clients before, during and after they have taken their learning journey with you.
Why? Because in this way you can review their experience in light of their original starting position, and how they finished. It also allows you to review their feedback in context of how they performed as your client – which will allow you to make judgements on the quality of the comments, and whether you believe them to be ‘valid’ enough to make changes in your course or not. This lesson will show you many different ways you can easily gather evaluations from your clients.
In this lesson, you will learn how to process your evaluations.
This might not sound like rocket science but a lot of professionals ask for feedback, and then simply never do anything with it because it ends up in the 'too hard' basket. Learn some simple methods for dealing with all pieces of feedback, however good, bad or ugly they may be. Use the GOLD that your clients give you, to improve your content and wow the next set of clients who engage with it.
In this lesson, you will learn how to reflect and improve on any teaching and learning experience.
If you've got this far, it's because you're truly interested in teaching and learning and you're ready to find out how to truly learn from every experience that passes you by.
The last video, and the accompanying workbook, is the capstone for the 4 PILLARS e-Course, and only available once you have taken the end of course online survey.
