Webinar:
Cracking the Compliance Training Code

28 August 2019 – Online
14.00 – 15.00

Not many people seem to like compliance training. Not people at work, not many learning professionals, maybe some training providers. But we all want the people and organisations who serve us to be compliant. So how can you learn how to handle this compliance training paradox and find professional ways to make the best of it?

Cost: free

Interested? Sign-up for the webinar

In this webinar we will explore what to do – and not to do – to be sure that compliance training is effective, relevant and makes sense. You will learn how to first peel the compliance training onion to get to the core of what needs your attention. We’ll introduce a model to help you understand the regulation of behavior and how technology can play an important role for effectiveness and efficiency.

Here are some interesting blogs from Ger to get you started.

Ger’s Learning Notes #39 – Putting the learner at #1

While I was researching and curating this episode, I wondered about my own professional training to become a learning designer. I don’t recall that there was much focus on the user, back then, only in very general ways. I guess it is the legacy of Steve Jobs to put the user at the center of attention in design processes.

Nowadays, it has become the norm, and a standard even a ‘no-brainer’ in the expectation of users. Over the years, I found my way step by step to put the learner at the center of my learning design activities and during presentations and training. And to me, it made my work more interesting and rewarding.

I hope this episode of the learning notes helps you find your way in the area of learner centered design.

Ger’s Learning Notes #38 – Jobs to be Done for Learnings design(ers)

Are you fond of milkshakes? In fact, I am. And even more since I heard the explanation by Clayton Christenson about why people ‘hire’ a milkshake. Clay gives a great explanation about Jobs to be Done via his fun and famous Milkshake example that you’ll find in this episode.

Although Jobs to be Done (JTBD) stems from Innovation literature, I think it has value for, and can easily be applied by learning designers. For sure if you want to apply design thinking principles such as the use of empathy.

I’d like to say: ‘JTBD is empathy on steroids’. See how it might help you and let me know about your experience when you tried.

Ger’s Learning Notes #37 – Inspiration from Award Judges

The previous learning note episode (#36) was about learning from award winners (aNewSpring Most Inspiring Learning Journey Awards 2021). This time, I’ve asked the judges of the awards to share their favourite resource with the ‘learning notes audience’. The four judges were Stella Collins, Nicole van de Ven – Smeelen, Michael Strawbridge and yours-truly. You’ll find their relevant resources in this edition of the learning notes.

Ger’s Learning Notes #36 – Learning from winners

You might be wondering why it’s taken so long since the previous edition of my learning notes. First, because of the COVID lockdown, we decided to spend our time serving the community with our free ‘miniMOOC’ on Online Social Learning. Then, in late September 2020, I was hit by a severe stroke and was in hospital for half a year. I needed to learn to swallow and walk again for the second time in my life. I’m very grateful to have recovered quite well after nine months.

Ger’s Learning Notes #35 – Learning Experience Design

I bought my first iPad in Chicago in 2010. At that time, the device wasn’t available yet in the Netherlands. During my flight back home, I opened the box and switched the device on. What a magical experience! Never before had a nine-hour flight felt so short. Steve Jobs and Apple changed the world. They moved design, in general, and User Experience Design, in particular, towards the centre of attention and set new standards.

Ger’s Learning Notes #34 – The Learning Technologies London Notes

Do you have any special occasions every year besides Christmas and the summer holidays? Something to look forward to because you know it will be a great experience? For me, such an occasion is the Learning Technologies Conference and Exhibition in London. Late January or early February of each year, this largest learning event is on the agenda. In this episode of the learning notes, you’ll find some impressions of this great event.
