Needs assessments are used to identify strategic priorities, define results to be accomplished, guide decisions related to appropriate actions to be taken, establish evaluation criteria for making judgments of success, and inform the continual improvement of activities within organizations. A learning needs assessment is simply a systematic process of asking questions, comparing answers, and making informed decisions about what to do next to improve human or organizational performance.
A thorough learning needs assessment is the foundation of a robust learning and organizational development program. It is the catalyst for developing awareness in both the individual and the organization. The results from the learning needs assessment are an input into the learning and organizational development strategy and plan. Therefore, an action plan comprised of the following tasks will be implemented: Set clear goals, plan, gather data, analyze data, define learning objectives & present final learning and organizational development strategy and plan.
We will be conducting assessment sessions, in-person interviews and a survey to gather input from our stakeholders.
We will be hosting sessions at multiple locations throughout campus that are convenient to you to help us identify our learning needs. These sessions are one hour in length, interactive, and highly engaging. Your input is important to this process as we strive to create an environment where development opportunities are available to help you succeed at Tulane.
Contact us if you have any questions about the learning needs assessment sessions.
