Ep. 14 | #L19PODCASTS | Graphic Illustration with BRUCE VAN PATTER

Bruce and I explore how drawing brings out our inner-child and, with it, the insecurities many people develop about drawing. We transition that conversation into our adult lives and how bringing back the joy for drawing we had as children can actually help us learn better. Bruce is passionate and knowledgeable about his craft and we’re sure that you’ll find this podcast is packed with great information about graphic illustration and it’s connection to learning and development.

Ep. 6 | Should Training be fun?
Should training be fun? Is training more effective if it is? Could it make the training worse? While there are lots of questions about fun in training, there is also a lot of anecdotal evidence to suggest we should make our training sessions more fun when appropriate. However, in spite of this, L&D practitioners are often resistant to incorporate fun due to uncertainty about how it will be perceived.
