Clarity on Expectations: The workshop will lay the foundation for writing improved learner-survey questions but will not, by itself, make participants expert question writers. Guided and iterative practice with extensive coaching is required for true expertise. Those who are successful in this workshop, will almost certainly be able to write significantly better questions than are found on traditional smile sheets, but they will not yet be experts. Participants who are successful can graduate to the next level of certification, the Master Certification—where guided, iterative practice, and one-on-one coaching are provided.
Will Thalheimer literally wrote the book on Performance-Focused Smile Sheets. Each participant will receive a FREE copy in eBOOK format.
This Gold-Certification Workshop is credentialed at an LTEM Tier-5 level, indicating that those who successfully complete the workshop have demonstrated an ability to make realistic decisions about smile-sheet design and deployment.
Where some evaluation workshops drill on esoteric measurement jargon, the Performance-Focused Smile Sheet Workshop provides a depth of understanding and a practical approach.
Will Thalheimer, the workshop creator and facilitator, is one of the preeminent innovators in the workplace learning field, acclaimed for his research-based approach, his accessible presentations, his practical focus, his humor, and his blue shoes.
The Gold-Certification Workshop on Performance-Focused Smile Sheets provides a deep introduction to surveying learners, including a review of research on the failures of traditional smile sheets, a clear description of the rationale and benefits of performance-focused smile sheets, an energizing contemplation of bad practices to avoid, and a practical approach to writing better smile sheet questions.
The workshop will get you (and/or your whole team) started in writing better smile sheet questions.
Learning evaluation is a complex and confounding area of practice, one that must be mastered over time, through learning, experience, reflection, coaching, as well as through experimentation and cycles of continuous improvement.
The workshop will get your team started—and Work-Learning Research can provide subsequent support in terms of coaching, materials development, review, feedback, and educational sessions to your key stakeholders. We are primarily a consulting operation, not just a training operation—and we believe to our core that follow-up support must be an option. We will be there for you before and after the workshop if you’d like to engage us in additional ways.
This workshop is designed to fit into today’s busy schedules. It is available online anytime. Will Thalheimer, the course creator and host, reviews discussions, monitors progress, and provides feedback on extra-credit exercises.
Your Investment: The online-anytime open-enrollment workshop price per participant is $425 per person.
