Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Andy Galloway

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it are putting strain across all areas of business, including Learning & Development. Thus inspiring LearningDU Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’ series.

This video series consists of informal five-minute chats and will give you a great opportunity to feel connected to others in the industry and gain a rare glimpse into their day-to-day lives. Sharon Claffey Kaliouby will be hosting the series and will be joined by several learning professionals to discuss how they are in general and how they’re coping with the current climate.

For this episode, Sharon was joined by Lecturer, Consultant and Investors in People (IIP) Practitioner, Andy Galloway, as they chatted regarding distance and online learning.

Adult education is something that Andy has worked in for over 12 years and is passionate about. Prior to the pandemic, 70% of his work was with IIP, and 30% was with The Open University. As the need for online learning increased, he got an opportunity to take on more work with Open University.

During this Hang Ten, Andy discusses how technology is levelling the playing field, find out more in the video below.

What is a Hang Ten?

According to the Wiki dictionary, a Hang Ten is ‘a surfing maneuver in which a surfer stands and hangs all his or her toes over the nose of the board.’ It’s a maneuver all surfers want to achieve on a longboard and requires great skill and expertise. At Learning Pool, we work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
