Podcast 167 - In defense of the course
This week on The Good Practice Podcast, we discuss whether traditional formal learning has a role in the modern workplace. And, if so, when?
To dig into this topic, Ross G and James are joined by author and learning designer Patti Shank.
In this episode we discuss:
- why courses are so unpopular
- when a course is a good solution
- the characteristics of a good course
The book Ross mentioned, by Don Norman, was The Design of Everyday Things, available on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Design-Everyday-Things-MIT-Press/dp/0262525674
The learning platform Patti referenced was New Zenler. You can request early access at: https://www.zenler.com/
