LearningWire #194 – HTML LearningWire, find a trainer now, Kolb, Kilpatrick and PDCA…


TrainingZONE LearningWIRE - Issue 194
11 March 2002

...HTML LearningWire!...find a trainer now...Kolb, Kilpatrick
and PDCA...ILA enquiry proceedings...appraisal objectives...

Editor's note
With LearningWire nearing its 200th birthday, we're looking to
celebrate with the most significant change to the format since
the wire was launched back in 1998. The technical team here at
Sift have been working away over the last few months to establish
the technology for us to send LearningWire in an HTML format.
So, for the first time, if you've ticked the option to receive
the wire in this format in your profile, you'll be receiving a
more visually stimulating, easier to navigate newswire in the
coming months.

If you'd like to receive this newswire in the new format when it
launches next month, visit
click on 'My Newswires and Alerts' and check the box there.
