Happy New Year From the Learning Is The New Working Podcast Team. We Also Have NEWS!

Xin Nian Kuai Le, Blwyddyn Newydd Dda – and ¡Feliz Año Nuevo!

If that wasn’t clear, we really do mean a Happy New Year to all our guests, listeners, and supporters at The learning Futures Group for a great start to our Workplace Learning Disruption Podcast in 2019, Learning Is The New Working.

We launch into 2020 and so a whole new decade with a new dedicated website and a fascinating lineup of new interviews coming your way very soon. If you haven’t already, ensure you don’t miss anything by clicking on that old ‘Subscribe’ button on the podcast provider of your choice to make sure you keep your place in the conversation about the Future of Workplace Learning.

That new dedicated home is www.LearningIsTheNewWorking.org. There, you’ll find season-by-season collections of back episodes as well as useful additional resources including transcripts of selected episodes, podcast backstories, and links to places our guests have suggested you can find out more about either their work, or other useful content.

You can subscribe to our newsletter here. Now, in terms of who you can expect to hear from that we have already confirmed and mostly even got on tape ready to go for you across our different podcast themes, we can today confirm:

More Learning Scientists

In the next few weeks you can listen in to our conversations with

Anant Agerwal, CEO and co-founder of MOOC pioneer edX.org on edX in the enterprise

Mary Slaughter of The NeuroLeadership Institute on the power of brain friendly L&D

Krishna Madhavan from Microsoft’s Learning Innovation Labs on Innovation and the importance of ethical AI.

More Learning Philanthropists

Throughout the first half of 2020 our Learning 4 Good stream will introduce you to capacity builders such as Chris Proulx from Humentum, The Humanitarian Leadership Academy’s Nicolas Kroger, Tina Boulding from the UK’s Cornerstone Foundation, as well as the Chief Learning Officer at The World Bank, Sheila Jagannathan. We’ll also hear more conversations between my co-curator for L4G Lutz Ziob and the great Learning Leaders he’s identifying as driving change across Africa.

More Learning Leaders

Here we can tempt you with in-depth dialogs with Sean Gallagher, Executive Director of Northeastern University’s Center for the Future of Higher Education and Talent Strategy, on why Universities and industry need much better partnership models,

Marie Cini of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning on her work building regional talent strategies,

And some legendary Former CLOs including Hilton Hotel’s Kimo Kippen, Fernando Sanchez-Arias of Home Depot, and Dave Vance of Caterpillar University.

And Even More Women

We always strive for balanced gender representation in our interviewees, but we can always do better. To fix this, we are designing a special Women Leaders in Learning Season to launch in support of International Women’s Day this year (March 5), throwing our weight behind its 2020 theme of #EachforEqual.

Maybe you can do your part here to support IWD too: we are looking for diversity-minded Learning providers and detect brands to sponsor the season, and are absolutely open to your suggestions and nominations for female Learning and Talent leaders who are moving the industry forward.

Submit your nominations here… and great to see where 2020 will take not just the podcast and our work at The Learning Futures Group forward, but the whole #WorkplaceLearning future. Have your say – and join us in the journey!
