As learning professionals, we can rely on people always needing support to do their jobs more efficiently and more effectively. We can also rely on the hows, whats, whens, and wheres of that support changing. It's up to us to make sure we have the skills, knowledge and attitude to keep pace with changes in learning science, technology and learner demands. 

This week on The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Gemma and her teammates in the learning experience team are joined by digital learning designer and developer Ed McLean to share how they keep pace. 

We discuss: 

  • The skills and knowledge we're using now
  • How we anticipate what we'll need to develop in the future
  • How we find learning and development opportunities.

In ‘What I Learned This Week’, Gemma recommended The Rest is Politics podcast. You can find this wherever you listen to podcasts. 

Ed prompted discussion about the Swiss legal requirement of buying guinea pigs in pairs. You can find out more by reading 'Why it's illegal to own only one guinea pig in Switzerland' in the NY Post.  

Sean's fact about the first VR headset came from this 'A brief history of Virtual Reality, In patents' article.
