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 encore 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.

With a global mission to “accelerate the world toward 21st century education and workplace infrastructures, address inequity with student and employee centric models, and connect the fragmented ecosystem of stakeholders into a unified hub of innovation”, Learning Economy is focused on solving some of the world’s toughest challenges.

And how do they plan to accomplish their ambitious mission? A key way is through blockchain, the technology that allows for capturing and tracking digital data in a very secure and decentralized way while ensuring integrity and transparency.

Utilizing blockchain, Learning Economy hopes to establish a protocol that can bring together data from every source of education for every learner, to understand where value may - or may not - be created.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Jeff talks with Learning Economy’s Chief Strategy Advisor, Taylor Kendal and Community Director, Duncan Cox, about how they’re using blockchain to change how we track individual learning and the idea of an open education graph to provide a visualization of the value being generated across the supply chain of education.

They also discuss what they describe as the four archenemies of what they’re up against and share about a pilot that Learning Economy is getting ready to launch in Colorado that will provide a concrete point of reference for implementing the protocol more broadly.

After working three decades for various large, global companies, John Stepper – a self-described “accidental entrepreneur” – began searching for ways to get more out of work and life.

This search is what ultimately led him to create Working Out Loud, an approach to building relationships that helps you achieve a goal by making contributions over time that you make visible to others. Not only does the process increase access to more people, knowledge, and opportunities, but it leads to greater feelings of empowerment, confidence, and motivation as well.

And his book, Working Out Loud: For a Better Career and Life, guides you through the twelve-week mastery program to help you put the approach into practice yourself and then turn that practice into a sustainable habit.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Celisa talks with John about the concept of working out loud including its five basic elements, ways it benefits participants, and related common barriers. They also discuss how to set the stage for successfully working out loud and ways to structure the working out loud experience through Working Out Loud circles.

When trying to understand what it takes to succeed in the education business –particularly when it comes to increasing sales – there are many factors to consider. And it usually doesn’t have anything to do with having the latest bells and whistles, or perhaps a huge catalog of offerings. In fact, what we’ve observed over two decades of extensive research and consulting, is that it typically comes down to three fundamental areas.

In this episode, we examine the three factors that often impact and limit sales of education. We also discuss the important takeaways and questions learning businesses need to consider when trying to achieve success in each of these key areas.

With the launch of a new event recently behind us, we wanted to devote some time to reflect on the experience. And, as we have done with past Leading Learning events, we are utilizing the After Action Review (AAR) as a framework to guide that reflection process.

For those that might not be aware, the new event - Live Review 2019 - was a two-day, entirely online offering that allowed participants a chance to get targeted demos from 14 learning platforms focused on learning businesses and committed to serving organizations that market and sell lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional development.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Jeff and Celisa reflect on Live Review using the guiding components of AAR: what it is they set out to do, what actually happened, why there was a difference between the two (if there was one), and what they will continue and/or change going forward.

It’s not unusual to be asked for feedback by a colleague or friend. And, likewise, it’s not unusual to be offered unsolicited feedback, whether from a boss, colleague, or friend.

But giving—and receiving—feedback is arguably harder than most people think. It’s an art and a science. And it’s exceedingly important that learning professionals take the time to learn that art and science because of the critical role that feedback plays in learning.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Celisa and Jeff delve in to the topic of feedback, including how to effectively give and receive it, common misconceptions around it, and the tremendous impact it can have on learning.

Understanding how to learn and master new and difficult skills is essential in today’s rapidly changing world. And Scott H. Young, a committed lifelong learning, blogger, and author of the newly released book, Ultralearning: Master Hard Skills, Outsmart the Competition, and Accelerate Your Careerhas spent the past decade becoming an expert on how to successfully do this.

Through completing a wide range of self-education projects—things like completing MIT’s four-year computer science curriculum in 12 months and learning four languages in one year—Scott, an ultralearner himself, has really walked the walk when it comes to pushing our ideas about learning to the limits.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Jeff talks with Scott about his book Ultralearning, including the projects that led to writing it, the principles behind it, and how learning businesses can apply the research to help the learners they serve.

Leverage is essential to the success of a learning business. It’s about helping learners get the maximum value out of their learning experiences and it’s basically the key to maximizing reach, revenue, and impact. So creating leverage for ourselves – and much more importantly, our learners – is arguably one of the most powerful things a learning business can do now, or in the future.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss this valuable concept of leverage as it relates to lifelong learning and learning businesses. They talk about the importance of vision and insight and also highlight critical ways to achieve leverage including technology, curation, community, and metalearning.
