As learning business professionals, we tend to think – and talk – about lifelong learning mostly as it relates to professional growth. But lifelong learning as it relates to personal growth is equally important because it cultivates critical thinking and allows for the never-ending exploration of curiosity.

David Kurfirst and Chris Zumtobel are the co-founders of Think Olio, a three-year-old start-up that provides provocative and thought-provoking lecture-style events – what they refer to as “olios” - on a wide range of topics that allow individuals to engage in a unique lifelong learning experience for roughly the same price as going to a movie.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with David and Chris about what inspired the creation of Think Olio, their model for teaching and learning and why it works for them, as well as lessons learned along the way.

When it comes to training design, perhaps focusing on what people need to be able to do, not simply what they need to know, can make all the difference. That’s because this leads to activity-centered training rather than traditional information presentations.

These concepts are what led Cathy Moore, speaker, training designer, and author of Map It: The Hands-On Guide to Strategic Training Design, to create the action mapping model. Her goal is to “save the world from boring instruction” and her tools and resources are helping to do this one learner at a time.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with Cathy about action mapping including what it is, why it’s effective, and how to apply it. They also cover the role action mapping plays in measurement and evaluation and scenario design.

We continue our tradition of providing After Action Reviews for the events we host, but with a slight twist this time. The scheduled live programming has ended, but we don't consider the Learning • Technology • Design™ (LTD) experience to be over yet, so we are calling this a "Mid-Action" review. Tune in to learn more about what we set out to do with this year's version of our annual virtual conference, and how it is turning out.
