5/20/2019
More
This week on The GoodPractice Podcast, we're talking fundamentals: how do people learn? Nick Shackleton-Jones joins Ross G and Owen to discuss his new book, How People Learn, in which he argues that people don't learn anything if they don't care. Or, to put it in Nick's term, if they don't have an 'affective response'. What does this mean and how should Nick's insights change our approach to designing courses, resources and experiences? Also: we argue about e-learning for ten minutes. If...

5/13/2019

141 — How do we go beyond the course?

4/15/2019

Structured courses are great for learning new skills, but they also tend to be expensive, time-consuming and focused on teaching content that most workers don't need.

If you'd like to share your thoughts on the show, you can find us on Twitter @RossGarnerGP, @OwenFerguson and @Quinnovator. To find out more...

4/2/2019

136 — Does the language of L&D matter?

3/8/2019

Think of an experience that triggered such an emotional reaction that your behaviour was permanently changed. Such experiences often happen by accident, but they can also be designed.

A great onboarding experience involves plenty of forms, a few handshakes, and a small chance of a working laptop - or so it might seem. But does it have to be so bureaucratic? We think not. On this week's GoodPractice Podcast, Ross G and Owen are joined by the CIPD's David Hayden and GP Strategies' Danny Seals to explore a better approach. We discuss the link between recruitment and onboarding, the role of the manager, and the characteristics of a great experience. And we take a stab at...
