Ruthlessly Relevant - How Can We Engage The Modern Learner?

Episode Summary

In time of overloaded schedules, smartphones and on-demand resources everywhere, it is getting more and more difficult to get through to our learners. L&D programs need to be ruthlessly relevant in today’s world. We have to focus on the performance-outcomes and work our way backwards to create learning experiences that stick. One way to achieve this is to take a page out of the marketing playbook and use time-tested tools and techniques to create relevant and engaging content. This week Brent and Chris bring on special guest Bianca Baumann to chat ways to increase engagement amongst learners! Check out this helpful link from Jeff Kortenbosch on questions to ask before talking about making learners in an organization successful via engaging techniques. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/hey-ld-professional-you-asking-right-questions-jeff-kortenbosch/ Bianca is a curious, self-driven and results-focused professional with 10+ years in the Education field. She is a consultant on learning solutions and leverage data to make learning stick, personalized and delivered just-in-time. Bianca has a mix of education, digital marketing and customer success experience. She's not one for the LMS, seat-time or the next button. Challenging the status quo, Bianca asks the tough questions in order to bring L&D into this century, leaving behind old learning styles that don't work.
