Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Stefan Eger and Luke Smith

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 Learning 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.

Sharon was joined by colleagues Stefan Eger and Luke Smith for series 32 as they discuss the launch of a Learning Pool podcast ‘The Death of E-learning‘.

This brand-new podcast will get to the heart of what online learning should be – and what it shouldn’t. You’ll find interviews and panel discussions, along with the recurring segment ‘The Death of E-learning’ where they ask guests which element of L&D they’d throw out if they had the chance (or how they’d make it better).

Find out more about how they got started in the below Hang Ten or subscribe to the podcast today.


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, a number of our innovative products are very water-driven, we have our LXP Stream, Waves, Rapids, and Flo. We also work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
