  1. Who Is Self-Directed Learning Really For?

    Who Is Self-Directed Learning Really For? There's an interesting buzz around the world of learning right now, a returning interest that makes me both excited and concerned. The idea of self-directed learning seems to be becoming a prominent and popular theme once again, allowing adults in our organisations to take the initiative and responsibility for their own learning.

  2. Are you translating your Training Needs Analysis into effective experiential learning?

    Are you translating your Training Needs Analysis into effective experiential learning? We often encounter clients who conduct a 'conventional' Training Needs Analysis (TNA) and then struggle to convert the results to the design of an experientially based programme of learning. A combination of line manager / peer observation, survey and strategic considerations should reveal a pretty comprehensive representation of individual ... Read more...
  3. What's the right setting for delivering Experiential Learning content?

    What's the right setting for delivering Experiential Learning content? In the blog I wrote last month I tried to address some of the assumptions about experiential learning that seem to be getting in the way of people including elements of this approach in their programming. It seems that the most pervasive of these assumptions is about the physical spaces that are needed to deliver effective experiential content. To ... Read more...
  4. Are your assumptions about Experiential Learning getting in the way of a breakthrough in performance?

    Are your assumptions about Experiential Learning getting in the way of a breakthrough in performance? My friend and colleague Graham Cook is heading to Florida later this month where he'll be delivering a session at Training Magazine's 'Training 2024' conference and exhibition. His session is titled 'How to Design Behavioral Change Using Experiential Learning Activities'. I'm not going to be alongside him for this conference but that doesn't mean I... Read more...
  5. Continuous Professional Development for Focused Experiential Learning

    Continuous Professional Development for Focused Experiential Learning Most good trainers and facilitators I meet tend to have a strongly developed intuition about the needs of others. It doesn't take long for them to get to understand what will help a student to learn, and how learning material needs to be presented to make it easier for that learning to take place. As these trainers and facilitators become more ... Read more...
  6. What's The Best Seasonal Gift You Could Give?

    What's The Best Seasonal Gift You Could Give? It’s a question I often read around this time of year, and it inevitably provokes responses from extremes of opinion. There are those who go full-on consumerist and suggest expensive cars, jewellery, homes etc, ideas that are balanced by those who reject these ideas and suggest good health, happiness, close family etc.   So, as I&rsquo...

  7. How do facilitators work with groups who have had an 'easy win'?

    How do facilitators work with groups who have had an 'easy win'? There were some interesting responses to last month’s blog which considered how to handle a session where your group are unsuccessful at completing the experiential task you have set them. For some people this was accepted as very sound advice, and it seems to have taken away some of the ‘fear of failure’ that was out there. ... Read more...

    3 Strategies to turn experiential task failure into learning “But what do I do if they get it wrong?” It’s a question we hear a lot, particularly from facilitators who are just setting out on their transition to including more focused experiential content to their delivery.    My blunt answer is typically “That’s exactly what’s meant to happen and it’s a...

In the last days of September 2023, at a large, elegant Victorian mansion in the Highlands of Scotland, a diverse group of people will come together to celebrate an anniversary.

  10. How to create a hybrid workplace learning culture focused on affective learning

    How to create a hybrid workplace learning culture focused on affective learning I’ve given significant attention in recent postings to the huge importance of ensuring that the content and design-methodology of any event that brings people together to learn is carefully chosen. I’ve given particular attention to the need to avoid anything that could be learned just as well without bringing people together in the ... Read more...
