The Ones That Got Away

Posted on Aug 27, 2013

Regular readers will know that wherever possible I try to blog about work that I am doing / have done as opposed to theoretical, utopian views about what we should be / shouldn’t be doing in L&D.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this per se, but there’s only so many ‘we should be collaborating more‘, ‘social learning is the way to go‘, ‘mobile learning is here to stay‘ etc posts that I can read.

What I prefer to read are those posts that detail what people have done / are doing, posts that are rooted in what I refer to as ‘The Real World’, hence my inclination towards writing those types of posts. However this has got me thinking….

What about the pieces of work, brainwaves, bright ideas etc that never saw the light of day, that never came to fruition, that we stopped (for whatever reason) in their tracks – not because they were barking mad, risky ideas but because….. well just ‘because’?

Perhaps there’s something in those loose plans that might be of use to others?

That’s why I’m starting a series of posts centering around ‘The Ones That Got Away’!

I’m not sure what format they’ll take or how many of them there’ll be. But I do know that I have a few of them to share.

What about you?

What ideas of yours, despite them being completely logical and bona fide, never saw the light of day?

For anybody who’s interested in the concept of ‘working out loud’, you should check out the #ShowYourWork hashtag on Twitter or check out this online session that @JaneBozarth is facilitating.
