    Trainers Gonna Train: Cara North and Guests Help You Submit Your Conference Proposals

    Trainers Gonna Train: Cara North and Guests Help You Submit Your Conference Proposals

    "Trainers gonna train". That's what I thought of when I logged in to Cara North's TLDCast on conference proposals this last week. Cara included guests Jonathan Rock, Jonathan Hill, and Thomas Sealock in this episode which was all about helping anyone interested in submitting a conference proposal for an industry event. There was lots of activity in this one, and the group did a great job of providing tips to help you get booked as a speaker for an upcoming L&D event. It's always especially fun to watch trainers helping other trainers; it's what TLDC is all about. So check out this episode, it was fun and is worth the listen.

    What Is Better For Your Career: Instructional Design Certificate or Masters Degree?

    What Is Better For Your Career: Instructional Design Certificate or Masters Degree?

    In our first playlist episode on Certificates and Certifications, we had a lot of questions for Christy Tucker about graduate certificates.

    Christy is a Learning Experience Design Consultant at Syniad Learning and has done a great deal of research on grad certificates, which she's posted about on her blog.

    In fact, when I was researching this topic, Christy's articles came up so many times it only made sense to invite her on to the broadcast.

    So the post this conversation is primarily based on, is titled similarly: Instructional Design Certificate or Master's Degree?

    You will learn more than you expected in this conversation. Christy answered more than a dozen questions on this topic, and I'd say the one thing that stood out to me is not necessarily the importance of the grad certificate or the Master's degree, but the portfolio you create.

    So give this one a listen, if you're interested in this topic, you're sure to enjoy it - Christy was a wonderful guest and you can find her blog at https://www.christytuckerlearning.com/.

    Discursive Practices for L&D with Cara North and Jonathan Rock

    Discursive Practices for L&D with Cara North and Jonathan Rock

    In this episode, Cara North and Jonathan Rock discuss Discursive Practices in L&D.

    So what are discursive practices? In this case, they are the dominant ideas or practices in an industry that ultimately define that industry.

    And in this episode, Cara and Jon discuss a recently released capability model from ATD, the Association of Talent Development. In this release, there were some somewhat surprising descriptions of skills L&D practitioners should have, and Cara and John opened up a discussion with the community about some of these skills and their relevance...or non-relevance.

    So take a listen, I think this episode will give you quite a bit to think about.

    You can continue the conversation in our Slack group, join for free at www.tldchat.us. Or go to our website at www.tldc.us.

    Project Kickoff Tips and Tricks with Nick Floro

    Project Kickoff Tips and Tricks with Nick Floro

    In this Productivity Playlist episode, our guest is Nick Floro, President of Sealworks Interactive.

    Nick is well-known for sharing fantastic app and software tips, and I'm delighted we were able to get him in for this episode.

    His discussion was focused around new project productivity tips and hacks, and he shared the entire suite of tools he and his team uses whenever they start a new client project. You'll find specific tool recommendations in this episode, and even folder and file directory structure suggestions, which coming from a 30 year veteran in this space, is absolutely gold.

    You're not going to want to miss his shared dropbox sheet that displays the outline of his talk. The link to the sheet is in the description.

    He also took a photograph of his six monitor array workstation. Mind blowing stuff.

    You can find all of the resources Nick mentioned here in his shared Google Sheet: https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/TLDC-The-Productivity-Playlist-Nick-Floro--AthOwGHvR0uRlj19XhgPVp8UAg-c4SLzXOL88jrSw6TnehLM

Not worth your time

It’s ironic that for an L&D podcast, the production quality and actual learning is minimal.
