• A few months ago, I started automating many of my posts to social media pretty consistently for Snap Synapse and its related projects. I've been posting 20-50 things a week across 11 different accounts on 3 platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn). It was a great experiment. And now I'm done. Largely, it didn't work. Here are some highlights of what I learned as I launched an eBook, two podcasts, a livestreaming show, several webinars and live workshops and speaking engagements, and rebranded my consulting business. Your mileage may vary, this is simply what I found worked best. LinkedIn goal met My LinkedIn profile has become the strongest of my social media assets. Its activity and expansion are now essentially self-sustaining. LinkedIn nice

  • Bloom’s 3 Domains of Learning Malcolm Knowles' Andragogy Gagne’s 9 Events of Learning Kirkpatrick's Four-Level Evaluation Model These are all recognized as important measures and reference points in any serious conversations about the development and assessment of Training. And yet...there seems to be something missing. A recent question posed on LinkedIn exposed a surprising amount of disagreement from fellow professionals in the Learning & Development field. See the thread for more: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6259168874294505472 Why is it that the very notion of measuring Training would cause such controversy within the Training community?

  • Have you heard of the Serious eLearning Manifesto? Perhaps you'd like to explore and to join?

Do Not Assume that eLearning is the Answer When learning is required, we do not assume that elearning is the only (or the best) solution. Tie Learning to Performance Goals We will couple the skills we are developing to the goals of organizations, individuals, or both.

  • Most of last year we co-produced and co-hosted a daily livestreaming show called "L&D Talk" with Brent Schlenker. It was great fun, but when the Blab.im platform died, so too did our show. Now there's a new iteration on a new platform, and it's shaping up to be even better than the first! While any day of the week is a great time to join in this live and interactive conversation with fellow L&D Professionals, Fridays are still our favorite (and best attended!) because that's when we talk about Video eLearning with special guests. Become a part of the conversation and community at TLDC.events!
