Helping you to learn on the run – get posting!

learning-on-the-run-tool2The learning partner has developed a prototype Learning on the Run tool in the form of large ‘post-its’ that have the prompts printed onto them.

These will be brought to you by the delivery team members. It will be up to you to decide how best to use them – but ideally you would use them in a Better by Design session to reflect together on the process and learning.

They will help you to:

  • Check in and review progress
  • Share thoughts about what is working and what needs to change to make it even better
  • Record and share insights and ah-ha moments
  • Check-out what others are thinking
  • Talk about design – What is it that helps? What gets in the way? What seems to be important or distinctive about it?
  • Talk about your desired outcomes – Are you on the right path? How are you doing?
  • Record evidence as it emerges so it is not lost and can influence the next stages of the process.

Here is the file in case you want to print them yourself.

Please get on touch directly with either of us if you want further advice on using this approach. Cathy info@research-for-real.co.uk or Jo jo@animateconsulting.org.uk

  1. Lynne has started testing this this week with SCARF.
    This prompts a few thoughts worth sharing about feeding back the experience to us:

    This is meant to be used to ‘evaluate’ the Better by Design process. Please flag this up clearly at the beginning. The idea is very much that they share their insights – they’re not really meant to be tucked away in a file – but stuck up somewhere in the office to promote conversation and further reflections. This could easily be used in a group context. On a practical note, there aren’t enough pads for everyone – perhaps someone can take custody of them or decide where they should be kept so that anyone can get access?

    Perhaps when you feedback to us you could to say something about:

    •How did the group use the tool? After what BBD activity?
    •What has worked well?
    •What could be done to improve the tool and it’s use?
    •What do they plan to do next with it?
    •Any other suggestions/comments

    thanks!
