Learning Uncut is about real conversations around real learning solutions and real experiences with real advice from real people.

We’re all about keeping it “real.”

Here’s an overview of our approach:

Strategy and tactics. We want to unpack the strategy and how-to’s of creating great learning solutions, frameworks and teams.

CONVERSATIONS, NOT SCRIPTED DISCUSSION
Our podcasts are professional but not so edited and polished that they lose their authenticity. We want our audience to hear real people having real conversations and sharing real examples and advice.

PROGRESSIVE
We want to showcase the “unsung L&D heroes” out there doing great work, being brave and trying new things.

PRACTICAL
We invite our guests to share tips and strategies to help listeners take their solutions to the next level. We aim to provide actionable takeaways for our listeners through show notes, links and downloads wherever possible.

    Listening: A Critical L&D Skill – Shaheen

    Listening: A Critical L&D Skill – Shaheen

    Listening is a critical skill to increase the impact of Learning and Development professionals. Our guest, Shaheen, shares her personal journey with deep listening and how that has increased her effectiveness in her work. We weave this theme in with the story of Project Oxygen Mask, a mental health campaign conceived after noticing her own mental state and listening to others in the organisation to understand their experience. The campaign, designed in conjunction with a mental health expert in her organisation, HireUp, was run quickly and lightly on Slack. Full of great tips and resources to help us all improve our listening practices.

    Working with xAPI Data – Siva Kulasingam and Andrew Bloye

    Siva Kulasingam, the Digital Learning Manager at Coles, believes that “data is a beautiful thing.” He joins me with Andrew Bloye from ClearXP to discuss how his team is working with xAPI data after implementing a Learning Experience Platform (or LXP) and Learning Record Store (or LRS) several years ago. We discuss how both guests think about the learning technology stack and the case to invest in both an LXP and LRS so that you can work with xAPI data. Get a clear explanation of the technical jargon before we go deeper on how to effectively work with xAPI data, drawing on the rich experience of both guests.

    Advanced Clinical Supervision: Blended Virtual Learning Program – Kate Fraser and Dr Kuva Jacobs

    Advanced Clinical Supervision: Blended Virtual Learning Program – Kate Fraser and Dr Kuva Jacobs

    Kate Fraser from the Australian Association of Social Workers joins me to discuss a blended learning program for clinical supervisors developed in partnership with Family Safety Victoria. She is joined by Dr Kuva Jacobs from RedPoint Consulting who worked on the design and development of the program. Some interesting design considerations shaped this program, including a high need for psychological safety for participants due to lived experience of trauma, peer support through coaching circles, and the bold move of using Miro in the face of resistance.

It’s all good

Being back into the L&D space I need to get up to speed quickly. This podcast helps me do that. I started by picking and choosing episodes that I was particularly interested in but then I realised “it’s all good”! So I listen to each one now. Really concise, practical and useable. Thanks guys! Looking forward to more and, maybe, contributing one day! 👍
