#GuildChat for 08/11/17: Podcasts for L&D

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, August 11th at 11AM PT/2PM ET. This week’s topic is Podcasts for L&D.

Having just done a guest appearance podcast with the fine folks at GoodPractice (you can see their series here) We were inspired to start a discussion around the revitalized use of podcasting for individual learning and for use in organizational L&D.

In this week’s episode of #GuildChat we examine the growing use of podcasting and how and when it is effective. We’ll also discuss the style and personalities as well as the tools of the trade.

So if you are podcasting, have appeared on a podcast, listen regularly to podcast or are considering taking on podcasting for work or pleasure, be sure to join us this week. Bring your examples, questions and look to help the community at large better understand how podcasting can be a bigger part of personal and organizational learning.


Prospective questions:

Q1. Do you listen to podcasts? If yes, for what purpose? If no? Why not?
