Langford Learning TEAMS (Training, Evaluating, Analyzing, Measuring Systems) training is an independent workshop that follows the Probletunity Improvement PDSA process and philosophy. The workshop focuses on training TEAMS in any organization in continuous improvement methodologies applied to real-life problems.
Participants develop communication skills, explore leadership situations, learn quality improvement tools, develop a purpose, understand and follow a vision, and apply problem-solving skills to improve their learning.
The workshop is a step toward building profound long-term changes in lifelong learning practices and improving work and learning processes.
Langford Learning TEAMS gather and analyze data regarding a problem, present their findings, and propose a plan for reducing or eliminating the problem by following the Probletunity Improvement PDSA (Plan-Do-Study-Act) process.
Langford Learning TEAMS will learn:
- Systems Thinking
- Problem-Solving Using Probletunity Improvement PDSA
- Portfolio Development and Organization
- Learning Process Documentation
- Data Collection and Analysis
- How to Study Variation and It’s Effect on a System
- How to Build and Strengthen Communication Networks
Langford Learning TEAMS training offers students, educators, businesses, and healthcare professionals the opportunity to focus on continual quality improvement techniques, processes, and theories.
Each participant applies principles of continual quality improvement on a real-life work-related problem.
"I learned what real learning is all about – a constant reflection of one’s progress toward attainable goals based on one’s prior experiences and knowledge. I wish I would have been taught this way! Thank you very much! Wonderful!"
"All of the complaints that I hear at school from other teachers center around student motivation: “The kids do not care,” Should we really give them rewards for things they should do anyway? I am excited to bring this new learning into my classroom and help my students reach a new level of learning. Thanks for a great conference!"
"I can use the tools, beyond the initial feedback processes, to narrow and identify what to work on and how to develop plans for improvement. I have identified how to begin a challenging conversation about grades and grading practices with an idea of how we can study the issues with volunteers from what I have learned in the past few days."
"The improvement coaching and Langford Learning online curriculum will continue to have an impact on my work in education for years to come. After this training, I am so motivated to bring the tools and knowledge to my school to help improve the work we do for students."
"My experience involved with David’s small group coaching sessions was great. David’s knowledge of improvement methodologies and his ability to address questions and issues with my project was very helpful. The Tool Time For Education book is an invaluable resource that I will continue to use in my improvement journey. Overall, working with David was a very impactful experience and I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about improving processes and understanding systems."
"I was completely new to improvement science and the methods and tools we would be using. I was able to take what I learned from the online training and coaching sessions directly to my students. I am so excited to begin next year with this new way of thinking about how to make improvements in my classroom."
"Improvement science is a practice that I am relatively new to. With David’s support and the Langford Learning online curriculum, I have gained a strong understanding of the impact this work can have on our organization as well as a clear framework to use when approaching possible opportunities for change."
