The most recent post on the Spicy Learning Blog is an extra special one, because it’s our 50th post – a great milestone which we’re very proud of!
Over the past nine or ten months, the Spicy Learning Blog has explored a range of topics from the world of technology supported learning in the workplace – including instructional design issues, design and development questions, the potential of mobile learning, project management best practice and wider business strategy considerations. We’ve also recently started a series of ‘how to’ guides, offering our tips on a whole host of things.
The blog has also been generating discussion, with around 25 comments added – and this is something we’d love to build on. We’re really interested to know what the rest of the learning and development world is thinking and talking about, so whether you think we’re slightly off the mark or we’ve hit the nail on the head, please do let us know!
Some of the most discussed questions (both inside and outside Saffron) include:
- How can you ensure rapid development still delivers quality training?
Rapid e-learning: is it really the Emperor’s new clothes?
Instructional design – pah, who needs it?
- What do businesses need to do to survive in today’s economic environment?

- Does compliance training really need to be a dry, dull box-ticking exercise?

- What makes a good question – and what makes a really bad one?
Where does Santa Claus come from?
How can I get the best from my questions?
- How can online training allow users to learn by doing?
Tell me and I’ll forget…
Involve me and I’ll understand…
- How do you make sure a course really focuses on what learners need and want to know?
What’s in it for me?
