133 — How can experience design tap into our emotions?

2/19/2019
More
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. This week on the GoodPractice Podcast, Ross G is joined by Owen and PA Consulting's Kenny Temowo to discuss experience design in detail, and ask whether it can be scaled to reach larger audiences. If you'd like to share your thoughts on the show, you can find us on Twitter @RossGarnerGP, @OwenFerguson and...

131 — What makes a great onboarding experience?

2/5/2019
More
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...

1/29/2019

1/15/2019

127 — How do I design MOOCs that people actually complete?

1/8/2019
More
The completion rate for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is famously low, and in many cases these courses are neither 'massive' nor 'open'. But nothing attracts the GoodPractice Podcast team like the end of a long-running fad, so we're kicking off 2019 by asking how learning designers can make sure their MOOCs are relevant and engaging. Ross G and Owen are joined by Solera's Dr Hannah Gore, formerly of The Open University, to discuss. If you'd like to share your thoughts on this...

120 — Why are most webinars so terrible?

10/22/2018
