This post is a question really, or a rumination. I am keen to gather feedback and ideas about this. This title refers to Learning data with a higher case L. So data from Learning systems and products. Which, in turn, probably means data gathered from the tools of the L&D teams of organisations. Further to … Continue reading Can Learning data offer insights about performance?
Does removing the word “learning” from discussion make it easier to understand what L&D is about?
The notion of a Netflix for learning has been floating about for a few years now. I have heard it both enthusiastically proposed and equally vigorously critiqued.

One of our great problems in the L&D world is that we often care more about … Continue reading Learning is not being disrupted (it’s the reverse of that)
If we don’t say ‘course’ or ‘programme’ can we say anything at all?
