Post Pandemic Virtual and Hybrid Learning: What's Really Working? with Jo Cook

As we begin to emerge from the lockdowns of the pandemic, we look to reflect on what we have learned. Since so many people and organizations were forced into virtual classrooms everyone wants to know if it was effective. Do virtual and hybrid learning solutions work?

Jo Cook joins us in this episode to discuss her research with Jane Daly, a Behavioral Scientist specializing in evidence-based culture and capability transformation.

We discussed some of the results of this survey and reflected on our own experiences. Everyone has strong opinions about zoom fatigue and other common negative aspects of the past year. But it is important to recognize that within the chaos was learning. We've all learned what we hate about virtual meetings and virtual training. But we have also discovered what we like. This survey will help us all make the case for change and support new decisions and innovative designs of virtual and hybrid learning solutions.
