Podcast 213 — Learning through community

To create a safe space for L&D professionals to talk about their challenges and find solutions, Emerald Works runs a regular Learning Innovation Group (LIG).  

This week on the Good Practice Podcast, Gemma asks LIG curator and facilitator, Nahdia Khan and LIG participant, Victoria Winter, Senior Learning Strategist from Cerner, about the value of the LIG. 

We discussed:  

  • What the LIG involves 
  • The value of a community of practice  
  • The professional, personal and organizational benefits of attending the LIG.
