Straw man arguments in L&D (Sukh Pabial)
An interesting piece looking at justifications for specific theories or ideas in learning and how we must face up to challenges if we want people to be better, rather than resort to straw man defenses of our ideas and content.
The latest episode of the professionally-developed, slick TV channel dedicated to excellence in learning and development.
This episode is a cracker, with regular features from Robin Hoyle (one of our columnists) around the role of culture in learning outcomes and Martin Couzins on learning in the digital age.
This great piece from HR blogger Mark Hendy is a follow-up to David D'Souza's 50 questions on the future of work.
Some are serious, some are silly, but all are thought-provoking. A good read with an afternoon coffee.
Developing a dialogic mindset: learning in a place of uncertainty (Michael Ciszewski)
A really interesting piece on the NHS Employers website looking at why leaders (and everyone, really) need to be in the moment.
It looks at dealing with uncertainty, coping with change and reframing questions we ask ourselves to lead to better outcomes.
