    [Providers] Today's New Models for Leadership Development
    We are talking with a new startup who plans to help companies solve this problem, by providing an end-to-end coaching platform that helps companies select coaches and assess their value throughout the coaching process. And despite the work of companies like TripleCreek, who provide mentoring and coaching networks, it is still hard to find the "Right Coach" for a given need in a given country. One of the biggest investment areas in Human Resources and Talent Management is Leadership Development. Let me highlight a few of the big changes which you should be aware of. 1.

We had some quite heated debates at the Concede Project meeting yesterday on the nature and direction of user generated content (UGC). When we met in Erlangen, Germany for our last project meeting in May this year, we came up with a definition of UGC: User generated content is "content created and shared freely by students and/or teachers that has not been formally peer reviewed".

    The job of the online tutor is to ensure that students can interact, regardless of their location, and to make sure that the tools are provided for all the possibilities. I have discovered that successful technology mediated interaction between learners is more likely when students are unable to meet face to face and it's the only option they have left. It's like a lifeline to them. Many of my distance students have told me that it's good to know that other students 'out there' are in the same situation as them, and that they can communicate across distance at the click of a mouse.

    Non-instructional learning interventions are those that provide tools and resources in order to do something we don’t know (or have forgotten) how to do. I used this chart, developed a few years ago, to explain in a simplified way the differences between Learning Interventions and Instructional Interventions. It shows that training & education (in the workplace) should concentrate on addressing a clear lack of knowledge and skills by using appropriate instructional interventions, well-established over the years. Informal learning would be another name for non-instructional.

    Learning Councils provide a fantastic opportunity for L&D to get their voice heard by an organisation’s decision makers. They also provide the sounding board for new ideas and approaches in learning. Have you heard the song “Walk a Mile in My Shoes”? It was a powerful song of the ’60s written by Joe South and covered by none other than Elvis Presley. The song was about prejudice, racism and an appeal for balance and understanding between social classes and races. Think back to the last project you worked on. Of course that’s unlikey to happen.

    [Providers] Social Media Marketing – Review
    Here are my picks of those provided: Best practice: Conduct many small tests frequently and build on each one. It’s the kind of book I would recommend or give to clients to provide us with a common point of reference.
