DarkMagicBK ,

A great podcast for learning professionals

Gwen Tanner gives us real-life examples of how to think of course creation in these modern times. It helps me to be more “learner centric.” Great podcast for our industry! She would make a GREAT keynote speaker at ATD or TICE or other conferences.
