Performance Support: The Resurgence

Allison Rossett; August 15, 2012

“Technology is the number one reason, and cost and productivity. Performance support just plain makes sense.”

“Why performance support, and why now?” Allison Rossett, an educator and a thought leader in improving human performance, responded to this question and others posed by Karen Hyder and Mike Sloat.

In this video, Allison discusses the factors that are making performance support an important element in business strategy.

  • Why is performance support re-emerging now?
  • Why does performance support matter to organizations?
  • Why is performance support important to training and eLearning professionals today?

And finally, Allison identifies the reasons why The eLearning Guild is the right group of people to put together the Performance Support Symposium.

Hurray for the resurgence of performance support and the affordable technology that allows this to advance individual, long term, critical, must know, information, learning and performance outcomes, consistent with defined, strategic objectives

Where individual, long term, critical must know learning, = Appropriate, Professionally Facilitated: initial understanding, ongoing reinforcement, fluency/mastery, recall (eliminating forgetting), application, stick/behavior change, adaptive reasoning skills, in the most effective and most efficient way possible

This parallels the new, long term, individual learning model:

“ Instructor facilitated, truly personalized learning, over time, with Instructor facilitated, truly personalized reinforcement, over time, in an Instructor facilitated, truly personalized, blended learning environment, over time” [ Supplemented with, affordable, scalable, effective and efficient, instructor facilitated, truly personalized, learning and reinforcement technology]
