As learning business leaders, it’s inevitable that there will be times when you need additional resources. Whether it’s new staff, new technologies, extra contract help for a special project (the list goes on and on), getting those resources may not be easy. Very often you have to convince someone else—be it your boss, your board, or investors—that the resources really are necessary and that they will result in a positive return.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss five points that will apply in almost all business-case-making situations to help you get the new and better resources that your learning business needs to succeed.

As learning business leaders, much of our work focuses on the design of learning. But if we take that one step further and begin thinking of ourselves as designers of learning environments, we may be able to broaden our influence and have a greater impact on the learning experience.

This is a guiding principle behind the work of Dr. Bucky Dodd, Chief Learning Innovation Officer at the University of Central Oklahoma and Director of the Institute for Learning Environment Design (ILED). His research focuses on innovative instructional design initiatives including the design of learning environments.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with Bucky about Learning Environment Modeling™ (an approach he’s pioneered at ILED), how learning environments impact learning experiences with learning effectiveness, and the changes he sees on the horizon for lifelong and life-wide learning.

When it comes to myths and superstitions, most of us don’t consider those terms in conjunction with learning. But as leaders in the business of lifelong learning, it’s important to understand these common misconceptions and the impact they can potentially have on the learning outcome.

Dr. Clark Quinn’s latest book, Millennials, Goldfish  & Other Training Misconceptions:  Debunking Learning Myths and Superstitionsdebunks common assumptions of good learning design to help you avoid wasting time and resources on practices not backed by research. Clark has over thirty years of experience in the design, development, and evaluation of educational technology and he helps organizations work smarter by leveraging technology that better aligns with how we think, work, and learn.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa talks with Clark about misconceptions in learning, the importance of designing for the situation rather than the learner, and the dangers of “best practices”.

You may already be familiar with the Learning Business Maturity Model™, a simple yet powerful tool we created to provide a framework to help organizations assess the maturity of their learning and education businesses.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss how to effectively put the Learning Business Maturity Model to work to help you grow and improve your learning business. They offer a refresher of what it is and the three major areas of it’s application: dialogue, diagnosis, and direction.

Across the broader business of learning and education, if there’s an area that hasn’t been tapped to it’s full potential – or even to it’s partial potential – it’s educational data mining and learning analytics.

Dr. Ryan Baker, associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania and director of the Penn Center for Learning Analytics, is known for his role in establishing the educational data mining scientific community and also founded the world's first Masters program in learning analytics. His work focuses on finding student data related to learning, engagement, or emotion that can be used today as well as to predict – and hopefully improve – future student outcomes. He’s published a wide range of academic papers and articles and has also taught the popular MOOC, Big Data and Education multiple times.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa Steele talks with Ryan about his work in the areas of educational data mining and learning analytics, the importance of understanding student engagement and disengagement, as well as intelligent tutoring systems and their impact on lifelong learning.

Personalized lifelong learning for all. That’s the driving force behind the 9 Billion Schools movement, which was conceived with the recognition that every individual is uniquely different in their ability, interests, hopes and dreams. And all human beings on Earth – there’s projected to be about nine billion of us by 2050, in case you’re wondering what the significance of that number is – will flourish if they have access to lifelong learning opportunities that meet these diverse and ever-changing needs.

Lauren Della Bella and Dick Thomas are passionate leaders behind the 9 Billion Schools movement and co-authors of, 9 Billion Schools: Why the World Needs Personalized, Lifelong Learning for All.  They are also both leaders at SHP, a nationally recognized architecture firm focused on learning spaces of all kinds. Lauren serves as the organization’s president, and Dick as the vice president of architecture. Together they are reimagining the global approach towards education and learning while inspiring discussion, innovation and action around this critical issue.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Lauren and Dick about the key concepts behind the 9 Billion Schools movement as well as how space and technology are impacting the learning landscape.

We recently told you about the major areas that all learning businesses should be thinking about as they consider how best to grow and improve their offerings – what we coined the 4 “Cs” of the current learning landscape. And that included concision, context, competency, and community.

But we quickly realized there was another area of equal importance that wasn’t originally included so we are unveiling a fifth "C" to add to this important list of trends impacting the learning business landscape – competition.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss ways to help you get a handle on the competition in your market using Michael Porter’s Five Forces model as a framework for discussion.

Whether or not we are aware of it, each and everyone one of us is biased. It’s actually not always a bad thing and, in fact, it’s a natural function of the human mind. But as learning leaders, if we aren’t in tune with the fact that we are constantly forming biases – and the ways in which they are shaping our thoughts and actions – it’s impossible to ever overcome them.

Howard Ross, founding partner of Cook Ross, is considered one of the world’s leading thinkers on identifying and addressing unconscious bias. He’s also author of Everyday Bias: Identifying and Navigating Unconscious Judgments in Our Daily Lives and Our Search for Belonging:  How the Need for Connection is Tearing Our Culture Apart.

And as a learning and development professional with over 17 years of experience in diversity, inclusion, and intercultural learning, Shilpa Alimchandani is the Director of Learning and Innovation at Cook Ross. In her role, she leads the firm’s efforts to co-create learning solutions with its clients.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Howard and Shilpa about the concept of unconscious bias including why it’s important, the benefits of bringing awareness to it, and ways to disrupt bias both personally and as facilitators of learning.

Note also that Jeff wrote a blog post that looks at how the bias patterns that Howard identifies in his book can impact learning.
