Learning While Working

Friday, July 30, 2021

This podcast focuses on how the L&D field continues to evolve and transform. Produced by Sprout Labs and hosted by company founder Robin Petterd, each episode is devoted to an aspect of workplace learning. Listeners can expect to hear thought-provoking discussions on some of the industry's most pressing topics, ranging from design thinking to ways to measure the impact of learning ecosystems.

Earlier this year, Petterd welcomed Joshua Davies, founder of Knowmium, for a discussion on the role conversations have in L&D. During the episode, Davies explains what a conversation architect is and shares different ways leaders can create opportunities for dialogue during training sessions. Davies also recommends some tech tools talent development practitioners can use in the virtual space to promote conversation while simultaneously thwarting the effects Zoom fatigue has on learners.


In another episode, Nigel Paine, author of Workplace Learning: How to Build a Culture of Continuous Development, joins Petterd to explore learning cultures and expounds on some of the themes discussed in the book.

The Learning While Working archive boasts 100-plus episodes, each of which ranges from 20 to 30 minutes in length.
