Statue of MosesToday we talked about neurodiversity. What is it? It is “the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioral traits, regarded as part of normal variation in the human population.” (Lexico)  Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli and Jill Hurst-Wahl discussed: How do we adopt our training so that neurodiverse people are included?  How do we adopt our organizations so neurodiverse people are included? The conversation went from neurodiversity to language diversity, and a few stops in-between.

Our next T is for Training will be on Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. ET.  All are welcome to join us through Talkshoe.

T is for Training is now recording on Thursday nights and our last get together was on Oct. 10 (9 p.m. ET).  The technology spirits were not good to us (this seems to be a recent trend), but we were able to pull together a good conversation nonetheless.  On the call were Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli and Maurice Coleman.  We used the article “Four learning & development trends in the digital age” as our starting point.  We discussed the different ways people want to learn (see graphic below), the need for people to take charge of their own learning (self-directed learning), meeting people where they are, engaging in short bursts of training, and taking existing training and modifying into different formats.

Our next show will be Oct. 24 (Thursday) at 9 p.m. E.T. (6 p.m. P.T.)

You can listen episode 254 on the TalkShoe platform.
