Accessibility and Everyday Activities

Accessibility and Everyday Activities in a Time After COVID-19

This weekend, I had a bit of car trouble that required my car to be towed from my home to a local dealership to be fixed. Nothing special, happens all the time, right? Well, not exactly. I came out of my house to greet the tow truck driver to make sure he knew where to take the car, etc. In doing so, I noticed he didn’t have a mask on but didn’t worry about it because we were distancing ourselves (6 feet) per CDC recommendations, and we were outside. As we were talking, he shared with me the consequences of masks for those with a hearing disability. He shared that he cannot always hear well and relies on reading lips to communicate.

Organizational Learning Strategy

Humans are a Venn Diagram. Why Isn’t Your Organizational Learning Strategy?

Back in March I attended the Training Industry Inc, Future of the Workforce Conference, and had the pleasure of attending the session led by Sonia Malik @ IBM. Sonia presented on automation, the future of work, and building a skills revolution inside of IBM – her presentation was informative and very relevant for learning organizations today. If you are interested, you should check out the recording here. But I digress.

Learning Technology Strategy

What Do Monty Python and the Holy Grail and A Great Learning Organization Have In Common?

I was first introduced to the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail in my senior year of high school. A teacher of mine thought me as way too serious of humans and suggested I need to learn to have a laugh. She gave me a copy as a gift (VHS not DVD thank you very much) and it became one of my favorite movies.

Do You Have What It Takes To Be Great – A Great Training Organization?

As a child of the 70/80’s I grew up believing that if you wanted to be great – all you had to do was eat your frosted flakes every day. I was totally that kid that Tony the Tiger was created for! As an adult, I realize that being great is a somewhat more complicated proposition – individually and for organizations.

Digital Learning Experience

Blurred Lines…… It’s Catchy Name for a Tune But Not What You Want For Your Digital Learning Experience!

Now hear this ……. You are no Robin Thicke and Pharell ……. I mean sure, you are probably pretty cool, but as a learning designer, we implore you ……no blurred lines. Ok – so all silliness aside, let’s get serious for a moment about accessibility and digital learning product. Image if you will being John Every Employee. You have asked John to complete a mandatory training course – you know – code of conduct, keep out of company jail kind of stuff that we are all so excited to do every year…..repeat after us “I solemnly swear I am up to no good….” – ok we are there. But John can’t launch the course – and it is not because he has a browser issue or even an issue with the course itself per se.
