Host Jo Cook Announces the 2022 Virtual and Hybrid Learning Research Report
So it's been a couple of weeks since I've released a podcast episode, but in case you didn't know, all of the episodes are streamed on Crowdcast, and I also post them to YouTube. So the last few episodes were visual; last week's episode was based on icebreakers using slides, and before that, I streamed live from DevLearn in Las Vegas. I can't format those appropriately for a podcast, but you can find them on www.TheTLDC.com or on our YouTube channel.
This episode was great for a podcast. Jo Cook did a TLDC takeover to announce her and Jane Daly releasing a research report on Hybrid and Virtual Learning. Jo is an amazing Virtual Learning facilitator, and the report findings led to lots of community discussion, which you'll hear Jo share.
Give it a listen - there's lots to learn here for everyone from VILT Producers to Zoom attendees.

Goal vs Approach: Global Differences and Similarities in Instructional Design featuring Cara North & Tom McDowall
In this episode we talked with Tom McDowall and Cara North about Global Differences and Similarities in Instructional Design. Since Instructional Design originated in the US in the 1940s, how has it evolved globally? Which brings up more interesting questions, including how technology has impacted ID, the origins of Learning Experience Design (a relatively recent shift in L&D) and even how social media and internet culture has become a factor in how we train.
A great episode with two of the web's most popular L&D professionals, give it a listen.

Success Stories: Teacher to Trainer with guest Stephanie Diggins
Our newest Success Stories episode featured Stephanie Diggins, a teacher turned instructional designer just last year. Stephanie actually reached out to me late last year asking if I could produce a virtual event on freelancing. Since becoming an instructional designer, she's decided to go the freelance route, and had lots of questions.
It took me a couple of months, but we made it happen and the event took place this last February. And with that kind of curiousity and dedication, it's no wonder Stephanie is feeling great about her career change. She has some powerful observations about the shift, and it's worth listening to this episode to hear them.
Love the podcast!!
Helpful information and great guests!
Not worth your time
It’s ironic that for an L&D podcast, the production quality and actual learning is minimal.
