eXplorance announces today a new framework, Training Experience Management (TEM), that would serve as the guiding strategy to assist higher education achieve continuous improvement in the teaching and learning process.
Many colleges and universities are struggling to adapt to rapid technology changes such as ongoing digitization, mobile & social media dominance, and MOOC implementation. Furthermore, market trends such as shrinking budgets, increased competition for students, and high focus on continuing education, are forcing higher education institutions to revisit the role of educators and shift the education paradigm.
Realizing that course evaluation as a stand-alone tool does not provide a complete solution, eXplorance is proposing a new framework to ensure that the shift in the education paradigm is successfully implemented and meets more than just student expectations.
In fact, the higher-education market space involves a complex interplay of many stakeholders, including future employers, governmental accreditation organizations, donors, faculty, department chairs, deans, provosts, CIOs, support staff/facilities, applicants, alumni, and students. While many current feedback tools are geared toward assessing teaching faculty performance, they lack the ability to sufficiently engage all the training stakeholders by timely and accurately providing a broad picture.
Blue, eXplorance’s TEM solution, sets the path to improvement by first focusing on the initial needs assessment and training requirements (e.g. future employer needs, government accreditation and student expectations). Based on these benchmarks, feedback is gathered multiple times during the academic term and results analyzed in real-time. The feedback allows improvements to be made promptly and to be monitored against the benchmarks to ensure that the training experience is providing a high return on expectations to all training stakeholders.
