    Scaling Professional Development with E-Learning

    Scaling Professional Development with E-Learning

    In this episode of the podcast, we explore the process of using e-learning to support the growth of professional development learning, through the experience of education non-profit HILL for Literacy. In the most recently completed school year, HILL for Literacy has supported the professional development of more than 8,500 teachers and school administrators, with learning content which helps teachers apply scientifically-grounded literacy instructional techniques in the elementary school classroom. Through this professional development learning, HILL has affected the education of more than 184,000 students.
    HILL for Literacy’s professional development programs were developed to be delivered through in-person workshops. Since 2019, HILL has undertaken a transformative initiative to expand their reach through virtual delivery of their content, with a combination of virtual coaching and synchronous and asynchronous virtual delivery (e-learning).
    In this episode, we are joined by HILL for Literacy’s director of research and development, Cindy McGurl, and marketing director MarcyKate Connolly.
    Cindy McGurl served as a consultant and coach on state, district, and school projects for more than twenty years, including implementing whole district/school literacy change models, using data to drive instruction, adopting instructional practices that support diverse learners, and program evaluation. As the Director of HILL Online, she now drives the process of developing tools and applications to make those projects more efficient, scalable, and sustainable.
    MarcyKate Connolly served in marketing roles at several nonprofit arts organizations before landing at HILL for Literacy, where she found a mission she was passionate about—teaching children how to read—that matched with her skillset and dovetailed perfectly with her work as a children’s book author.

    Artificial Intelligence for L&D

    Artificial Intelligence for L&D

    In this episode, we discuss artificial intelligence (AI) and its implications for learning and development. Tools like ChatGPT and other large language model (LLM) and generative AI tools can be a transformative element of workflows, including in the creation of text and visual learning content. But the adoption of AI goes deeper than learning content, and as AI is integrated across the enterprise, it represents a digital transformation which can position learning and development as a strategic partner in the business.
    In this discussion, we hear from three experts in the theory and application of transformation technologies. Judy Pennington is a Management of Technology Fellow and the James J. Renier Chair in Management of Technology with the Technological Leadership Institute at the University of Minnesota. Judy's career has focused on the intersection of people and technology, specializing in IT workforce transformation, IT leadership development, IT learning and development, culture, and change management. She was previously Managing Director and CIO Fellow with Deloitte Consulting and a member of the faculty and leadership team for the CIO Next Generation Academy.
    David Nguyen, Ph.D., is a Management of Technology Senior Fellow and the Edson W. Spencer Chair in Innovation and Entrepreneurship with the Technological Leadership Institute at the University of Minnesota. David has a background in the startup world by way of research in human-computer interaction (HCI), and in the innovation space, has published numerous articles on novel technologies and interactions. As an inventor, he has filed or issued more than 40 patents. He earned his doctorate in Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine.

    The Trusted Learning Advisor: A Toolkit and Manifesto for L&D

    The Trusted Learning Advisor: A Toolkit and Manifesto for L&D

    In order to maximize the impact of training, it’s critical that learning programs are aligned with the intended behavior change and your organization’s goals. While L&D professionals understand this, achieving this level of strategic alignment and collaboration can be difficult and in many cases elusive, as learning professionals are pushed into the role of “order takers” rather than strategic partners.
    In this episode of the podcast, we speak with chief learning officer, speaker and author Dr. Keith Keating, to explore the guidance and tools he has compiled in his new book, “The Trusted Learning Advisor.” In the book, Dr. Keating shares why learning professionals must evolve to earn and maintain the much-desired seat at the table, but also presents tools and templates to help you get there.
