What is innovDev?

 
In short: subsidized consultancy to assist Training Provider and Enterprises (TP&E) in improving their training material and delivery, built with flexibility towards the needs for enterprises.
 
In 2020, IAL innovDev was conceptualized as a multi-agency effort to help Training Provider and Enterprises (TP&E) in transitioning to a better blended delivery from the perspective of learning content and delivery strategy. As we enter post-pandemic stage, we want to continue supporting TP&E who have issues with their existing stop-gap measures or further iterate on their blended approach and plug existing shortcomings and weaknesses.
 
IAL innovDev provides up-to 35 hours of subsidized consultancy to help TP&E in improving any elements found within 2 (two) of their existing courses. This support programme provides the flexibility for TP&E to scope which portion of their courses they wished to improve on. The flexibility of this initiative also extends to the type of courses that TP&E can submit. The courses can be either publicly-run courses or internal-facing courses, WSQ or non-WSQ courses, government-funded ones or otherwise.
 
One can also think of innovDev as a support initiative to offset the risk of experimentation or attempting potential improvement. Our consultants would guide staff members to TP&E in whittling down potential options that serves the needs of TP&E target learners best, while being aware of TP&E’s limitations. Another plus point is the knowledge transfer from selected consultants with deep subject-matter experience to internal staff charged with tackling the system shortcomings.

Any success stories to contextualize the purpose of innovDev?

 
To better paint what is possible from innovDev, let us take a look at one of organizations that has enrolled into innovDev. Meet Mr.Ebnu; he is the Director of TeamworkBound Singapore, an organisational development and team performance training provider. Being a largely facilitation-based training provider, lots of the content is delivered via face-to-face engagement. At the start of pandemic disruptions, the performance of training was only kept up by the quality of in-house trainers despite being largely limited to delivering Zoom-only, didactic training. A hands-on, immersive training had been nerfed to half-a-body snapshots within small windows on a computer screen.
 
Ebnu and his staff Aphroz enrolled into innovDev to seek a way forward in improving his blended training as immersive and easy-to-deliver for in-house trainers and administrator as possible Through innovDev, Ebnu was attached to a suitable consultant to guide him in digitalizing a portion of his lessons. Scenario-based storytelling portion of the training was initially delivered manually by trainers by speaking into a webcam. The consultant helped to guide the organization to include a pedagogically-sound video offerings on a platform and integrated knowledge-check assessment onto the online training platform. Thus, it gives learners larger selection of scenario that resonates with individual profile of learners while freeing up more training time for personalized feedback with learners based on the result of assessment.
 
Upon the completion of lesson transformation, the blended curriculum also provides additional modes of delivery and outreach to other markets beyond Singapore. The intervention includes building up the skillsets of his staff, who managed training coordination to take on a critical backend supportive role, to edit and curate digital learning materials. This includes taking a proactive approach towards building and developing future digital contents amongst the suite of programs we offer.
 
“The videos as well as the quizzes was a good way for me to see the problems play out and for me to reflect and think about my personal characteristics respectively, ” mentioned one learner who benefitted from the transformed course. Another learner has given a feedback: “I enjoyed the course it was interactive and I did not feel bored or uninterested,” despite receiving a facilitation-based course delivered in mixed online and F2F channel.
