The Learning Hack team has launched new seasons of both its acclaimed podcasts.

Great Minds on Learning Season Three kicks off today with an episode on Learning Styles. The regular team of hosts Professor Donald Clark and John Helmer take a nuanced view of this widely discredited branch of learning theory that nevertheless still has its adherents. Did it perhaps get something right?

The next episode of Great Minds on Learning, to be released 29 September, will be about VR and the Metaverse - and will actually be recorded in the metaverse.

Season Seven of the Learning Hack podcast airs with an interview with Nigel Paine, a well known figure in the industry, which posed the question: 'Is L&D too inward-looking?' Future guests will include Andy Wooler of Area9, and Rebecca Rolland, author of 'The Art of Talking With Children'.
