Mind Tools L&D Podcast
Episode 336 — Who says learner surveys ain't sexy?
Learner surveys get a hard wrap: at best they’re a waste of time, at worst they actually mislead us. But what if we just did them well?
This week on The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Gemma and Ross G are joined by Dr Will Thalheimer to discuss the second edition of Performance-Focused Learner Surveys – a book so exciting that Will wrote it twice!
- why most learner surveys suck, despite L&D pros insisting they want to evaluate learning
- how to create effective questions that give you actionable insights
- why learner surveys are ‘pure sex’.
