Performance Management in Success Factors

Performance Management in Success Factors with Alt Kagesa September 9th, 2014
Alt Kagesa draws from the everyday and pop culture to bring life to the process and considerations needed to write clear and measurable goals. An example was a funny story from his life about the right tool for the job. You'll have to take the workshop to hear the story, but the lesson was, "Don’t use a wrench when you need a hammer." It’s often not the tool's fault it’s just not being used the way it was designed.  A goal is only useful it is has clear meaning and can gives guidance on ways to reach it.  This approach to goal writing has come to be know as SMARTgoal setting.  
A guide for writing quality SMART Goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time limited) is to use “2BYWHEN“.  It’s simple to remember and easy to use, but takes practice to master so be patient and get feedback.

The California Community College (CCC) System really does a great job of collaboration and forming a strong online community. They created a site called the Professional Learning Network (PLN) that all CCC faculty can access and collaborate on.

This reminds me of our monthly Professional Learning Community (PLC) as we utilize this time to learn from each other as well as share our knowledge with others who have interest. It would be great if we could form some type of resource site…

FocusOn Learn Conference 2017 Top 3 Takeaways

Attending my first eLearning Guild FocusOn Learn Conference highlighting mobile, games, and video was fulfilling. I look forward to implementing and sharing the many new skills I have learned.

The ʻōlelo noʻeau above describes my experience. One key quote that stuck with me from a session was to budget in "5+ minutes of playtime daily." [Take away #1] In order to stay innovative and engaged, we need to cognizantly build in playtime, especially when we have such busy lives. Since returning home, although I have not been able to integrate daily play time, I have increased my time to explore new apps or ideas that come up. I explored the Word Swag app an tweeted for my first play time since the conference ended.


My take away #2 was not something new, but a good reminder that the field of instructional design continues to evolve. Although mobile, games, video, virtual reality (VR) are key trends at the moment, it truly comes dow…
