Nice start to the outline. If you make the suggested adjustments given in class, I think you should be ok.

This might just be a semantics thing, but your learning goal and behaviors are very similar #lookout

Looks like you're headed in the right direction :)

consider Cole and "the 5th Dimension" as a principle/supportive literature for your badges. If i remember correctly, students in that environment earned badges as well. #trythis

"track team progress" might be a little misaligned with "self-directed learning": that principle is about the learner using metacognitive techniques to monitor their own progress and consider their own strategies. principle here might be cognitive feedback or targeted feedback.

Daniel Rees Lewis - This is a nice point -- you could always look at Edelson's Learning for Use here. Basically the idea is that learner's are more receptive to support once they have tried and struggled with a goal. To save you a google search: http://bit.ly/1cfB95X

Maybe after the students complete the "How Can We" statements, they can go around to different groups and pitch their ideas to find ways to improve the statements. #good

Metric 2: What do you consider "vague" or "specific enough"? #warning

4 years ago

Daniel Rees Lewis - I agree with this. I would advise getting at least a rough measure here. Some dimensions you might want to look at: specifying specific user types (e.g. hospital staff, children 4-6) in specific context (e.g. busy working in hospital, bored at supermarket), with a specific challenge.

Daniel Rees Lewis - Having said that - are these HCWs for Identify or Reframe? The above advice was for reframe.

Peter Meyerhoff — General

on metric 2 (specificity) you might analyze the language used in a successful example and see what makes it "vague" or "acceptable" or "specific enough". for example, it might describe a concrete, visible phenomenon (using language of specific people or objects) as opposed to an abstract goal (using language of values or processes).

Daniel Rees Lewis - Agree with Peter's comment -- I put a suggesting on Christina's similar comment.

Kristen McCarthy — Impact map: Alignment

The assessment that you've outline is pretty good, considering the difficulty of assessing the task at hand. #nice

I'm a little confused by the goal being "write how can we statements" and the behavior being "write how can we statements". I think you understand the nuance there but as an outsider it is a little confusing... #lookout

I'm curious on how the students are learning to write these statements and how they're (possibly) supposed to evolve over time

Kristen McCarthy — General

for the second behavior, do you expect the DFA team members to specify their own measurements?

Gabriella Anton — Impact map: Approach

Could the assessments be more wrapped into the badge system? E.g. "novice how can we statement badge", "intermediate how can we badge", "expert/master how can we badge" with each of these related to either a number or an iteration of the statements produced. #trythis

How is self-directed learning the principle that is at work when studio leads are tracking teams progress?? #lookout

Really clean, easy to follow #nice

your chosen principles well match the behaviors they are supporting #good

How do you determine whether or not something is "Specific enough" this seems a good place to provide worked out examples #trythis

Aliza Stein — Impact map: Form

I liked how you have titles over each column (e.g. persona, behavior, feature, principle). It makes the impact map really easy to read! #yay
