Podcast 202 — Farewell to Peter

Joined by Nicola Boyle, Owen Ferguson, James McLuckie and Ross Garner, Peter reflects on what's changed in workplace learning, and what hasn't.

We discuss:
 

  • The early days of digital learning
  • How GoodPractice introduced 'performance support' before there was a term for it
  • Our memories of Peter as CEO.

Ross shared news of the death of Professor K. Anders Ericsson. You can read about his career here: news.fsu.edu/news/2020/06/24/fsu-psychology-professor-anders-ericsson-the-worlds-top-expert-on-expertises-dies/ 

Nicola shared a story about the evolution of foxes: bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-52892194 

And for Peter's last 'What I Learned This Week', he discussed the book On The Trail of Wolves by Philippa Forrester, available from Amazon: amazon.co.uk/Trail-Wolves-British-Adventure-Wild/dp/147297204X
