Creativity in online learning, agile learning frameworks, the role of HR, and business ethics are just some of the topics we tackle on this week's show as we answer questions from the audience.
Mark Baker asked: Do you think as face-to-face trainers move into more virtual learning, is there a risk that they lose creativity in their learning experiences?
Shilpa Nimbalkar asked: How can L&D experts build an Agile Learning framework that supports business requirements (at scale and speed) and ensures learner experience?
Carl Akintola-Davies asked: Is there any value in workplace learning that isn't tied to strict behavioural outcomes?
Sean Brown asked: When push comes to shove, is HR there for the people or the business?
Sharon Green asked: What role does or could L&D and or HR play in business ethics?
