    Purpose Motivates Performance, with Wendi Peck & Bill Casey

Wendi Peck and Bill Casey of Executive Leadership Group (ELG.net) join me to discuss "Success on Purpose," how the elevated "why" behind one's work is so vital to motivation, performance and success.

    Cheryl Johnson: AMBITION: The Missing Attribute in Your Employees

    We sit down with Cheryl Johnson, Learning Consultant and author of the book, AMBITION: The Missing Attribute in Your Employees. We use the concepts of IQ and EQ and AQ (Ambition Quotient) as a springboard for a conversation that explores human performance through the lens of Ambition. Johnson contends that "AQ" is the cream that rises to the top of the IQ, EQ, AQ equation. We explore what it all means in a wide-ranging discussion.

    Tim Slade: The ELearning Designer's Handbook

    Tim Slade: The ELearning Designer's Handbook

    If we're honest, ELearning development can be overwhelming, especially for newer instructional designers. There's a wealth of theory to learn, plus multiple disciplines that come together to form the requisite skillset. Who can we turn to to make it easier? Tim Slade is an author, speaker and freelance eLearning designer who has been recognized and awarded within our industry multiple times for his creative and innovative approach to instructional design. He's a regular on the conference circuit, an Articulate Super Hero, the creator of The eLearning Designer’s Academy and the author of the book, The eLearning Designer’s Handbook: A Practical Guide to the eLearning development process for NEW elearning designers. His book is great for any practitioner, but with its aim toward the "developing developer," newbies will find reassurance and solid footing within its pages. Listen via Apple or wherever you subscribe to podcasts: https://apple.co/3927E7R

    Patti Shank: The Power of Multiple Choice

    Patti Shank: The Power of Multiple Choice

    Dr. Patti Shank joins us to talk about her new book, Write Better Multiple Choice to Assess Learning.  Often underestimated and sub-optimized, multiple choice questions are actually a powerful medium. Well-authored, they help us measure what matters in our learning. We explore the ways in which we go wrong and how to right the situation so we may make the most of the format, even projecting learners into vivid performance-oriented scenarios.

Glad I found this podcast!

I’d been looking for a good teaching/learning podcast, and this one covers a wonderful diversity of topics including super-techy and not-so-techy subjects. I think learning experience designers of all types can enjoy and learn from these conversations.
