For over 20 years, Debbie Carter has been working at industry magazine Training Journal, tracking the changes that have taken place in our field – and occasionally railing against them!
In this week’s episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, she joins Ross G and Owen to discuss:
· the state of L&D in the early ‘noughties’
· the big changes that have shaped our profession
· the constants that have remained the same.
You can check out Training Journal at: trainingjournal.com/
You can read Ross’s TJ article, on learning campaigns, at: trainingjournal.com/2023/education-and-skills/if-learning-matters-make-it-a-campaign/
In what is surely our best-researched (and least interesting) ‘What I Learned This Week’, Owen revealed the quick-drying properties of microfiber towels from the company Dock & Bay: uk.dockandbay.com. That’s not an affiliate link, just an excellent way to dry yourself quickly. You’re welcome!
Ross G discussed, perhaps with greater relevance to our audience, the language that we use to discuss AI. Check out this blog from Donald Clark for more: donaldclarkplanb.blogspot.com/2023/04/7-words-that-worry-me-in-ai.html
