Podcast 67 - Data analytics for L&D
On this week's GoodPractice Podcast, learning analytics specialist Trish Uhl joins Ross Garner and Owen to share how modern organisations can use data to drive performance. We ask how complicated this needs to be, and reflect on whether many L&D practitioners are already using data without realising it.

If you were interested in Owen's example of a simple, life-saving algorithm developed at a hospital in Cook County, the paper is available online:
