I Believe that Learning is Inherently Social

Is it a Classroom or a Prison? Some Common Sense on Measuring Training Effectiveness

Mindflash

This is the type of common sense that doesn’t turn into ROI, but I think more accurately measures many programs. Yes, there will always be the student who LOVES classes (and hint, hint — the student who LOVES all classes is typically a lower-performing employee).

What students need

New Year Resolutions for Learning and Development

Tom Spiglanin

Every year brings new hope to do things better, more successfully, and more effectively. How do those changes affect the learning and development function. How will we go about making changes to our daily activities and be a more effective business partner, regardless of our role?
