LearnPatch’s pick of the top L and D blog posts: March 2013


In March’s round-up of the best L&D blogs we have a diverse range of posts from a range of writers including practitioners and consultants.

Our aim is to highlight the excellent thinking, writing and sharing from L&D bloggers around the world. There is no science to this list – we flag up posts that we have enjoyed. We have also included a link to each author’s Twitter profile and the RSS feed URL if you want to add the blog to your feed reader (simply copy the link and paste into into your feed reader).
