Introduction to the Recommendations
The Banbury Working Group developed an initial set of 14 recommendations which describe specific ways The Principles are being, or have the potential to be acted upon.
- Recommendations have some intentional overlap since they can be implemented at different scales by different stakeholders.
- Recommendations are a starting place. We welcome additional viewpoints leading to the adoption, adaptation, and creation of additional recommendations in support of The Principles.
- A. Professionalize the training of short-format training instructors and instructional designers
- B. Centralize infrastructure for short-format training assessment and evaluation
- C. Support microcredentialing of short-format training instructors
- D. Operationalize equitable and inclusive practice in short-format training as an ethical obligation
- E. Deploy short-format training to counter inequity
- F. Make the Bicycle Principles actionable for funders
- G. Clarify the economic models that enable short-format training
- H. Document models for high-fidelity reaching, scaling, and or sustaining of short-format training
- I. Apply FAIR principles to training materials
- J. Encourage interoperable short-format training registries
- K. Communicate standards of instruction through badging
- L. Develop an implementation strategy for Catalytic Learning
- M. Support integration of diagnostic assessment into short-format training
- N. Encourage evidence-based guidance to support career-spanning learning
Recommendation Descriptive Features🚲
Every recommendation has six descriptive features:
- Summary: Expands upon what problem the recommendation tries to solve.
- How might this work: Brief implementation example and suggestions on evaluating success.
- Related Principles: Most closely related Bicycle principles.
- Benefits to the learners: How recommendation helps learners (directly or indirectly).
- Incentives to Implementers: Motivations for implementers to enact this recommendation.
- Barriers to Implementation: Obstacles that may hinder this recommendation.
