I’ve been on vacation the past two weeks, trying not to think about work. But every once in a while I still peek at a blog post or two. Recently I’ve posted about a variety of books to help round out your L&D library. But if you don’t have time to read something cover to cover, here are a handful of recent blog posts that might spark some thoughts and/or help you do something new or differently or better:
Some new ideas for designing in-person training:
In his post titled 2 Kickass Training Activities (classroom or online, or for small-scale webinars), Craig Hadden recently shared two new ideas for ways to allow learners to take more ownership over the sequence and flow of training presentations.
Some old ideas about training metrics:
Brent Schlenker recently wrote Why Butts-in-Seats is Still an Important Measurement to talk about the so-called “Level 0” metric. He makes the case that before you worry about transfer of learning or ROI, you need to know who/how many people are attending training sessions or taking online courses.
Some disturbing ideas on sexism that still runs rampant in the online world:
This final blog doesn’t have much of an L&D angle, but I’ve been struck over the past several months of how much discrimination and antiquated attitudes toward women still exist – from conference speakers to online gaming. Rachel Barnum wrote about her recent experiences in her post I F*cking Hate It When Women Play This Game.
