This week we’re featuring the Instructional Designers who worked on the From Paper to Practice workshops, let’s meet Georgia Carley and Kendall Murrell from TuesdayAfternoon Media.
Georgia Carley Kendall Murrell
What is TuesdayAfternoon Media?
We are a Toronto-based learning services firm with a celebrated reputation for our ability to partner, collaborate and solve complex training problems. Our team is comprised of passionate individuals with a growing and diverse skill set who are collectively focused on driving the industry forward. We believe that every training challenge is unique, just as every organization and every learner is unique.
What do you do there?
Kendall: We are both Instructional Designers so we work closely and partner with our clients to design learning solutions.
What was your participation in the From Paper to Practice Workshops?
Kendall: We worked with I4PL members who volunteered as SMEs (subject matter experts), and dug deep into the Competencies to really understand what it means when the Competencies come to life for performance and learning professionals. We focused on what it looks like when these Competencies are actioned on the job.
Georgia: From there, we took this material and through further collaboration with the SMEs, designed engaging and interactive virtual sessions.
How was the experience? How long was the process?
Georgia: Since we are all involved in Performance and Learning, we naturally fell into a rhythm with exceptionally strong collaboration. The design and development phase of the project lasted over a period of four months and I would describe it as an especially inspiring experience because the SMEs brought such great insights into every conversation.
Kendall: Everyone on the project was so passionate about the content! It’s not very often that you get to work on projects like this where your content is so closely linked to your professional role. Whenever Georgia and I wrapped up our conversations with the SMEs we felt really energized and enthused.
The I4PL SMEs are typically in your shoes as I.D.s, what was that process like?
Kendall: There was absolute enthusiasm from the group to jump into that SME role. You could tell from the group’s eagerness to share and collaborate in every conversation. It made for a very smooth process, and allowed us as a project team to really focus on developing great material!
Georgia: There was also an interesting sense of self-awareness from the group. I can remember that sometimes a SME would pause and ask “As a SME, am I doing this right? Is this what you want?” Since all the SMEs were so passionate about the material, they would sometimes notice that when discussing content, they were jumping to sharing design thoughts. They were so used to being on the design side!
What do you hope participants will get out of it?
Georgia: We hope that the passion that was clearly evident in each of our SME conversations comes through the material. It reflects how critical these competencies are to the work we do every day.
Kendall: We also hope that participants walk away from each workshop with tangible tools and actions to bring into their work.
Thanks to the SMEs for sharing their expertise, and to I4PL for the opportunity! And a big thank you to Moe who did double duty as one of our go-to SMEs and who is now facilitating these workshops!

How we speak and attempt to share information in the world of Change Management is important. The approach and indeed, the terminology itself can create an unconscious divide between us (Change Management people) and the rest of the world. Here is how you can overcome this obstacle.

The imperative for a more continuous approach to learning is growing. More than half of all working adults now acknowledge the necessity of learning throughout their lives and careers. Millennials, likewise, cite learning and development as the most popular workplace benefit.
But while the urgency to upskill exists across the enterprise, the time to do so may not.
The importance of well-executed onboarding is known to most HR and Learning and Development teams, as are the additional studies showing how smarter onboarding leads to higher job satisfaction, better job performance, and greater organizational commitment.
Today's onboarding goes well beyond the traditional quick induction many companies used to think of as sufficient for new hires, and now encompasses a dynamic process that begins before the new hire even walks through the door and lasts for at least the first 90 days of their tenure.

There's a fundamental rule in marketing — it takes seven touches before someone is ready to hear your message. With the increase in the volume of marketing messages, some suggest that number should be increased. This idea seems to have been taken to heart by some companies, which appear to stalk us after a visit to a website or, even more frightening, if we have a phone conversation in the presence of a device like Alexa or Google Home, or with anyone using Facebook messenger on their smartphone.
When it comes to e-Learning, there are a lot of myths going around about it and why it may not be a great delivery method for training. Well, we're here to bust those myths and show you why e-Learning is fantastic and could be a great option to deliver training to your students, whether you run a training company or offer internal training from a training department!
When employees want to learn something new, where do they turn? In 2016, my company, Degreed, conducted a survey to find out. The responses showed that today's workers turn first to their peers, bosses or mentors before searching the internet. The last thing they do is consult their learning organization.
