The full programme of interviews and features for LNTV Nov 3:

  1. Andrew Jacobs talks to Nigel about 'hybrid learning' and if you think it's just about whether we deliver training face-to-face or online then you are missing the point. It is much more complicated than that, he explains, it's about 'modes of learning'.

  2. Dani Johnson, Founder and Principal Analyst at Red Thread Research, talks about the importance of instruction and practice and, in particular, that if you give people more time to practice they reach competence far quicker.

  3. Jan Rijken, Director of Learning at CrossKnowledge, talks to Nigel about their new research which has produced a 'Learning Maturity Index' across six critical indicators. This research will be updated each year to get indicators of the growth and development of the industry.

  4. This month Robin Hoyle talks about the requests he regularly receives to work with groups containing both face-to-face and remotely during the same session. He explains his response to such requests and the misconceptions of learning which may lie behind them.

  5. LNTV News Bulletin - our regular roundup of the latest industry news from Rob Clarke, principal at Learning News.

The next Learning Now tv programme is on Nov 3 at 10 am UK time with the live social stream with Colin Steed starting at 9.50 am UK time.
