Successful PI System Adoption Through Staff Training

NEW - Become familiar with the basics of Instructional Design and best practices on developing an effective PI System learning curriculum

About this course

This lab isn’t the typical hands-on, technical course we usually host on our learning platform. We’ll be looking at the PI System from a different perspective. We’ll be using an educational lens; focusing on how adults learn and what motivates them. We will also be recommending an appropriate learning path for you to present to your colleagues which can assist them on their journey to PI System proficiency. An integral part of this path are the training and support options available from OSIsoft.

By the end of the course, you will be able to...

  • Consider a sequence of learning events to better instruct your colleagues
  • Discuss how you might need to modify the material to make it more relevant for your circumstances
  • Reflect on important learning design considerations
  • Understand your own learning process and preferences

Audience

It’s okay if you’re not a certified trainer or if you’ve never considered the PI System from a pedagogical point of view. The session will help you become familiar with the basic principles of instructional design and ensure that your learning resources are usable, accessible and have an impact on your colleagues.
