Overall I thought the session was very good. Its not the most exciting topic and I struggled with the fact that it seems implied by the CIPD that ethics and morals were key to HR, but actually they are key to all parts of the organisation not just HR. If the finance team have poor ethics and morals they could be embezzling money, Marketing could be falsely advertising, IT could be reading everyone's emails and messages etc etc.
It was great to meet other learners from different organisations and I found the the discussions and group activities worked really well. There is a lot to take in so maybe some additional breaks would help to reset the mind. Elaine is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject which contributes to a positive learning experience.
Irony - this is a course on Effective L&D and it was more of a signpost event. Elaine definitly added learner engagment techniques and opportunities for peer to peer learning, however we were often lost with only those with prior knowledge being able to contribute. Fundamenatlly the whole event needs more time. Three half days would be far better with time to assimilate the information provided.
