Traditional teacher focused class approach:


At an example company there are forty-five staff trying to improve their English skills.  Four English classes of ninety minutes are offered and staff are required to attend one.  - 360 minutes total teacher time


A staff member gets less than 90 minutes of show per week because the shows are attended sporadically.


very limited visibility

very little learning

no metrics




Learner focused active approach:


Staff spends an hour interacting with rich material, writing/speaking using new forms and words when and where good for them, and learning.


In a day or two each receives rich feedback - 360 minutes for 45 staff = 8 minutes of expert feedback time per staff.


The staff spends thirty minutes incorporating rich feedback when and where good for them and learning.
