Kosha Bramesfeld, PhD
Summaries of research findings are presented daily in the news, in advertising, by politicians, and on social media. These reports sometimes misinterpret or exaggerate research findings. The following questions can be useful for assessing if a media report of research is valid.
• WHO? From whom did the researchers actually collect data? Does this sample of participants match the population for which the results are being generalized?
• WHAT? What was actually being studied? Do the variables under consideration match the conclusions that are being made?
• WHEN? When were the outcomes measured and for how long? Are the conclusions over-stating the longevity of the findings?

Marketers are proficient in using a content engagement cycle, a practice for deciding when to engage whom with what kind of content during the customer journey. They plan months, quarters and even years in advance to create a content strategy that aligns with business goals and engages their audience pre- and post-sale.
L&D professionals on the other hand, often think about each training session or learning program singularly instead of looking at the overall learner experience.
Corporate L&D programs are undergoing a transformation to meet a growing end-user demand for more engaging professional development experiences. Jeff Weber, SVP of People and Places at Instructure shares his insights on why the future of L&D programs will have to strike the right balance of people and technology.
Whether we realize it or not, we are wired for social learning. From babies learning how to speak by imitating others to adults discovering how to put up wallpaper on YouTube, social learning is the main way in which we acquire and pass on knowledge.
