  1. Gamification, Experiential Learning and the Challenge of Virtual Learning

    Gamification, Experiential Learning and the Challenge of Virtual Learning Education has always been a fertile space for the creation of new terminology and models. Applied in the right spaces these concepts and semantics help us to more-accurately define what we do, but applied more casually they obscure real and important differences in approach. The pandemic has driven a great deal of learning on-line, and created the Read more...
  2. Developing Curiosity and Agility at arms-length?

    Developing Curiosity and Agility at arms-length? Last week my colleague Graham Cook, MD of RSVP Design, passed me a report to read, suggesting that it was highly relevant to how we support our customers in developing new business strategies for a very different world.

  3. Challenges and Successes in On-line Experiential Learning

    Nobody working in the learning and development field can have avoided the need for some radical rethinking over the past seven or eight months. The initial rules banning most face to face contact have been replaced by more nuanced restrictions, but not before a massive migration, and corresponding up-skilling, to on-line and virtual ways of working Read more...
  4. Design notes for a new reality?

    Like many other organisations, here at RSVP Design we’re wrestling with the raft of new challenges that getting back to work has presented.

  5. Use this technique to build positivity and make your team feel more able to take on future challenges

    Spot the Difference in these Two Statements “ These are terrible times, our markets have died and we can’t get the team together to develop any kind of response that’s going to get us back on our feet” “ It’s obvious that we’ve got challenges ahead of us if we’re going to get ourselves back on our feet, but we’ve got the Read more...
  6. COVID-19 has created a focus on spaces like Workspaces & Thinking Spaces, but what about Learning Spaces?

    COVID-19 has created a focus on spaces like Workspaces & Thinking Spaces, but what about Learning Spaces? For those of us in parts of the world who have been locked down during the Covid 19 pandemic, the concept of ‘space’ has come into sharper focus. In many ways, our space has shrunk and compressed, being limited to a room, an apartment, or a balcony. Lucky ones had access to a house and a garden. The ‘workplace’ became ‘the workspace’ Read more...
  7. Is our new (learning) normal here?

    Is our new (learning) normal here? This is now the fourth month my colleagues and I have been writing about developing teams, designing and delivering learning, and generally living under the strangest ‘lockdown’ conditions we’ve ever experienced. During this time the majority of our staff team have not been working in the business (but have had other issues to deal with). The Read more...

  9. RSVP Design - Learning under Lockdown Part 1

    RSVP Design - Learning under Lockdown Part 1 Here at RSVP Design,  just like every other business, we’ve been learning new ways of working. We should be good at that, our whole remit is about supporting other organisations in developing their learning focused activity, but it’s not been easy.

  10. Looking forward to the next new normal

    Looking forward to the next new normal It’s hard to believe we wrote our last blog entry only four weeks ago and talked about face to face Workshops as if they were a normal everyday occurrence… Fast forward to the current situation and we all now have a shared experience of the VUCA world - Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. We’ve probably also experienced the feeling Read more...
