We’re all familiar with one-off learning events like e-learning modules, workshops and virtual classrooms. They’re common because they’re logistically easier for everyone, but how we can adapt these to embed learning after the event?
To discuss, Ross G and Owen are joined by Paul 'Westy' Westlake, Digital Director at PeopleUnboxed, and host of the PeopleUnplugged Podcast.
During the discussion, Ross referenced the work of Immersive Interactive: https://immersive.co.uk/
We also referenced the Mind Tools report ‘Google it: The secret online lives of UK managers’: https://mindtoolsbusiness.com/research-and-reports/google-it-the-secret-online-lives-of-uk-managers
