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.

    Leading Learning Transformation – Damien Woods

    Damien Woods discusses the transformation of learning underway at National Australia Bank (NAB) over the past two and a half years.  We discuss the key pillars of the NAB learning strategy, the importance of having a vision for learning, gaining buy-in and building the capability of the Learning and Development team.  Damien describes how the shifts that had been made since 2018 equipped the team to help the organisation quickly pivot and upskill people to move into areas of high demand at the start of the pandemic, as well as redesign learning for the online environment.

    Lessons from converting and facilitating courses online – Jennifer Waltmon, Dr Cathryn Lloyd and Chemene Sinson

    In the five and a half months since COVID-19 hit learning teams around the world have grappled with converting courses designed for classroom facilitation to live online facilitation.  Early in the pandemic the Australian Institute of Training Development (AITD) decided to six courses.  Jennifer Waltmon, the AITD’s Programs and Content Manager, joins this episode alongside two of the conversion team members, Dr Cathryn Lloyd and Chemene Sinson.  They reflect on the experience of converting so many courses simultaneously, the parallels and differences between designing courses for face to face versus online delivery, and what they’ve learned about facilitating effective online learning experiences.
