New Upgraded 2-Week Crash Course for U.S.Private Home Heads "Protocol & Performance" Rocks!
The free online 2-week crash course "Protocol & Performance" has recently been successfully upgraded to cater to U.S. private home heads interested in making the best contract-related decisions, for the best contractors, for the best results!
* 2015 "Protocol & Performance"
* 2016 By March 2016, after many revisions/modifications of content, "Protocol & Performance"
* 2017 By late February, there was concern about … …
a. * Improving participant recall of lessons. Day 13-14 (Mnemonics 1, Mnemonics 2, respectively)
Since the volume of information is really immense (crash course, remember?), although mnemonic exercises in place were sufficient, it was decided that residents would learn even more if there was a "self-test" at the end of each page of a lesson;
b. * Improving communication. Although there was an e-mail address provided on each page for any inquiries the resident would have in the process, in order for him/her to do so, this person would have to visit the "Contact Us" page or his/her search engine. Either way, the resident would have to physically exit the lesson he/she was studying in order to make the inquiry;
c. * Content scanning, editing, and improving. No major scan had been made of the website as often as there should have been (part of the fall-out for temp volunteer outsource factor). The last scan in late February revealed that at least 1/3 of the content had to be "shaped up and shaped out."
Therefore, items "a.,b,c.," respectively, necessitated this major update which was accurately approximated to require two weeks. The upgrade was finished a day ahead (March 3). However, a brand new syllabus had to go with the modifications:
All modifications successful! Each lesson now has a self-test embedded at the bottom of the page for each resident which is aptly dubbed "Proactive Self-Test Initiative;" each page also contains an active link for immediate inquiry from each resident on each page of EVERY lesson: "Protocol Assistance."
Cumulatively, these major modifications to "Protocol & Performance"
