If you hit this sign you’ll hit this bridge; self-evident T&D musings

This picture came to me via Sally Khallash, a Futurist, with the Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies.

I laughed when I saw it and then thought about how some things about training & development should be equally obvious.

We, as learning specialists, should be setting a sumptuous smorgasbord of learning opportunities so participants can’t help themselves but dive in …. a smorgasbord that offers learning opportunities that is:

  • inclusive
  • engaging
  • accessible
  • intriguing

Why then is the traditional university lecture still held up as the epitome of learning?

    FYI: This sign was up for decades in my hometown of Griffin, GA. It was recently taken down so the bridge could be demolished. Everybody is sad about it.

    I bet. It’s such a fabulous sign. What a legacy to let go of. Thank goodness for pictures! Thanks for commenting Wendy; I hope you are on the cusp of a lovely New Year.

    I miss that sign. I laughed every time I saw it. I don’t go to Griffin much, but when I did, I made a point to go see that sign. Doesn’t feel the same since I can’t go see it anymore. I work in a frame shop. I’ve lost count how many times I have framed different pictures of this sign of the 6th Street Bridge. Love seein em every time they come in.
