A little while back I had the pleasure of interviewing Kelly Palmer, CLO of Degreed as part of our Immersion series.

Before she joined Degreed, Kelly was Chief Learning Officer at LinkedIn and had the fun job of building a learning organisation from scratch.

Kelly used curation as an integral part of the learning strategy and in this video case study she answers the following questions for us:

  • Who were the target audience and why curation?
  • What learning needs were best met with a curated approach?
  • What are the core elements that we need to be considering as part of a curation strategy?
  • What upskilling of your learning team was required – did you pre-educate them or let them learn as they went?
  • How did you decide to publish and socialise content?
  • How was your curated content packaged for delivery to the learner?
  • What content types were most popular or worked best for your audience?
  • In terms of introducing curation as part of everyday learning in the organisation, what were the main:
    • Challenges?
    • Wins?
    • Fails?
    • Surprises?
  • Do you think curation can work for learning in any type of organisation?
  • Where do you think the challenges around curation will come in the next 3 years?
  • If you could do it all again what would you do differently?
  • What’s your final bit of advice for anyone looking to start curating for their learners?


Thanks so much to Kelly for sharing her experience and tips with us! You can follow Kelly on Twitter @kellylpalmer
