La tarea de dar de alta cursos en el CFP es algo que repito de manera espor谩dica y casi siempre se me olvida c贸mo lo hago.

Por eso he decidido ponerme aqu铆 unas notas que me ayuden a recordar y evitar los errores m谩s frecuentes que cometo.

El PROMOTOR del curso siempre es el departamento, en mi caso el DOE.

Si solo hay una persona organizando, se introduce con el rol de Director (no hace falta duplicarlo o triplicarlos como coordinador o secretario). El director siempre es una PERSONA, no un cargo (se meten los datos de聽 nombre y apellido y no el cargo que desempe帽a).

Las encuestas siempre se pasan en persona, nunca por web (salvo que por alg煤n motivo, no se haya podido recoger los datos en el aula).

Si hay precios diferenciados y聽 el CFP no est谩 seguro de quien es de cada grupo, se pone el curso como PREINSCRIPCION (para que un responsable del curso haga la selecci贸n y marqu茅 qu茅 tasa tiene cada uno). Por defecto el curso se abre SIN preinscripci贸n. Si se quiere est谩 opci贸n hay que advertirlo al CFP. Si se quiere que la preinscripci贸n la gestione el CFP, aun con tasas diferenciadas, se les puede pedir que acepten lo que digan los alumnos cuando se inscriben (hay que dec铆rselo expl铆citamente).

Solo es necesario que firmen los profesores que IMPARTEN mas de 5 horas en el curso.

Las JORNADAS del DOE se asignan a un centro de coste del DOE (cuyo responsable es el DIRECTOR DEL DOE), las claves espec铆ficas las puedo copiar de a帽os anteriores. Puedo pedir que no abran centros de costes diferentes sino que todas las jornadas compartan el mismo centro de coste.

Si va a haber preinscripci贸n (recomendable si el curso tiene tir贸n de demanda), se debe indicar y es recomendable explicitar las fechas de cierre de selecci贸n y el proceso de selecci贸n (si es por orden de inscripci贸n o si se usar谩n otro criterios).

Las horas On-line se computan como un tercio de las horas presenciales.

Bueno, no es exactamente una frase del d铆a, pero me sirve igual.

Maximize Your Memory: Improve Your Memory to Present Better, Work More Efficiently, and Lower Stress. by Marlene Caroselli

In your brain are a hundred trillion nerve cells. Neural pathways connect your ears to your left temporal lobe and your eyes to your occipital lobe. From the occipital lobe, stimuli are sent to the hippocampus, where your memories are stored. The hippocampus analyzes the input and determines whether it’s worth keeping. For an experience to be encoded in your memory, multiple neurons need to fire often and strongly.

With practice, you can ensure the transfer of an event into short- or long-term memory. You will impress others with your remarkable mind and work more efficiently.

Assignment Gather a group of seven or eight coworkers and ask each for his or her most memorable trait. As each person talks, decide on an association for the trait. The more ridiculous it is, the easier it will be to recall. For example, you might envision Ted, who prides himself on his sensitivity, as sitting with his children in a darkened movie theatre, watching Bambiand weeping. Throughout the day, repeat each person’s traits out loud. See how many you can remember at the end of the day. Once you’ve mastered one trait, assemble a new group. This time, ask each person for two traits.

Researchers disagree about how memory functions. Devanand believes that the brain’s cortex serves as a cranial hard drive, storing “back-up files” in case the hippocampus fails. Different parts of the cortex seem to hold different kinds of memory; including * episodic or declarative memory (personal experiences) * semantic memory (general knowledge) * explicit memory (a specific name or fact) * implicit or procedural memory (an instinctual memory that works without conscious recall). All of those are known as retrospective memory because they recall already acquired knowledge. Another kind of memory, prospective memory, helps us remember things that will occur in the future–for example, a meeting held later in the day.

The need to enhance memory goes back thousands of years. From Mnemosyne, the Greek goddess of memory, comes mnemonics, the use of devices that help us remember. What mnemonic devices do you currently use? Assignment What set of facts or numbers do you want to remember? Work out a mnemonic device for doing so. Consider drama, acronyms, rhyme, alliteration, visualization, or any other method that works for you.

If you’re nor paying attention to what information is trying to enter your brain, you won’t retain it. But you shouldn’t retain everything. To avoid information overload, use filters: Screen incoming ideas for relevancy; As you take in information visually or aurally, train your eyes and ears to filter out the unimportant and catch only what you need. Assignment Study a paragraph for one minute. Skim and try to grasp only the key words. Then write those down from memory and attempt to re-create the essence of the passage. Do this repeatedly throughout the day. Assess your own progress.

Here are additional input tips

  • Make immediate use of incoming information that you wish to retain. The faster you use it, the more of it you’ll remember
  • Develop your listening and concentration skills.
    • One way to practice is to listen to someone speak while another person whispers in your ear. You should be able to repeat the first speaker’s key points. Or, watch a cable news program of a reporter speaking while banners run along the bottom of the screen.
  • Remove barriers that prevent the information from entering your brain-for example, noise in the environment or judgments about a person. To help with the first, isolate yourself as much as possible or use a white-noise machine to diminish distracting sounds. To prevent the second, remind yourself that everyone has valuable information to share.
  • Sharpen your powers of observation. One way to do that is to write down all of the details you can remember from the face of a dollar bill. The first time, you’ll probably remember only a few specifics. Try again a few weeks later; repeat until you can recall almost all details. Repeat what you’ve heard and seen. It may be a cliche, but what’s repeated is remembered.

Storage tips

The essence of memory development is association. To illustrate, draw from memory the shape of Austria. Now, draw the shape of Italy. Why was the second illustration so much easier to draw? It’s be- cause of the association we have with Italy as boot-shaped.

Assignment

  • List five work terms that you can never remember how to spell. Now write the troublesome part of each word in capital letters. For example, if you can never remember if accommodate has one m or two, write it as accoMModate. After your brain has seen the word written like that 30 times, the visual association will be frozen in your cerebral cells. . Here are additional storage tips.
  • Do several short run-throughs instead of one long session to commit information to long-term memory. Experts recommend reviewing 3 x 5, 3 x 5–three to five times a day for three to five days.
  • Develop synesthesia.
    • Use other senses to help you intensify an experience, thus enabling more efficient recall later. For example, to remember a phone number, you can remember the tones of the digits being dialed in addition to the numbers.
    • Cluster data. At first glance, the number 192,014,921,956,255,075 seems impossible to remember. But if you cluster the numbers into sets–1920 1492 1956 25-50-75–the task is much easier.

Retrieval tips

Here are a few tips for helping you recall information.

  • Combine tasks. For example, while you wait for your computer to boot up, review your to-do list. Put things out of place so you’ll notice them. If you need to remember to rake a file home, put it with your car keys rather than back in the file cabinet.
  • Prod your memory. If you can’t remember a specific name, for example, start going through the alphabet. Often, you can trigger the recall.
  • Develop your ability to concentrate to aid input and output. To improve Tiger Woods’s concentration, his father would attempt to startle the golfer as he focused on his shot. In time, Earl Woods failed to disturb Tiger because he had become inured to the distractions.

Assignment Ask a colleague to attempt to distract you at least once a day for several weeks. Practice ignoring the disruptions.

An improved memory is a career enhancer. It will save time, lower stress, and enrich your training and speaking. If you can remember to practice, you’ll be well on your way to a maximized mind.

Publish or Perish is a software program that retrieves and analyzes academic citations. It uses Google Scholar to obtain the raw citations, then analyzes these and presents statistics.

Most important to remember is that continuous improvement has to be taught as a culture change that becomes the responsibility of everyone; everybody has metrics and responsibility to maintain their goals and objectives, which is continuous improvement.
