Exclusive Digital Learning Vlog Chapter 1, 2 and 3: Developing future skills and mainstreaming innovation

Sarah Vaughan

We are proud to release the first of many exclusive digital learning vlogs that will be taking place each month with a specialised professional across multiple sectors, all with the intention of discussing digital learning in that space. This month we had the pleasure of speaking with Douglas Morrison, Director of Operations and Future Skills at Construction Scotland Innovation Centre. Our hosts, Spencer Holmes, Director at Totem Learning Ltd and Sarah Vaughan, Digital Learning Manager at Sysdoc. 

Mainstreaming innovation in the construction industry is easier said than done. A lot of factors come into consideration when trying to modernise an industry that has been so far resistant to change. There is a huge opportunity for digital and tech solutions to be adopted, and the industry is starting to wake up to the potential that change can bring. 

For many companies, it is not a goal to completely change a business model, but more so to upskill and modify its current offerings and services. Ultimately, that means building scalable solutions and supporting the new demand in skillsets to embrace those solutions.  


A thought-provoking and challenging discussion will always branch off to include other much-needed insights and that is exactly what this conversation provided with Douglas Morrison. What changes need to be made to embrace innovation, sustainably and effectively?

No Mission. No Vision. No Strategy - No Problem, Right? Wrong!!

If you need any evidence as to why, then we only have to look to our history. Unfortunately, if you Google ‘Battles that failed because of no plan’, you will find an overwhelming list of examples. The Battle of Little Bighorn is riddled with spontaneous moves on the field that did not have a favourable ending. What was the problem? No strategy. Some of you will have heard of the film ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ and think what a brilliant day he must have had with no plan. However, his day ended with him going nowhere, gaining nothing, achieving zero and a collection of mini failures along the way.  Whether it be a film or a part of our history, having no strategy or vision in mind can leave us unprepared for when it really counts. (A certain global pandemic comes to mind).

Upskilling and reskilling: A conversation making its way to the front of digital learning

Spencer Holmes, Director at Totem Learning Ltd, and Sarah Vaughan, Sysdoc Digital Learning Manager have been co-hosting for the past few months vlogs with a number of inspiring guest speakers from across the digital learning industry. Vlogs that often side-track into other topics which unearth points of discussion that could easily exceed the allotted time slot of recording. However, all are linked and crucial to digital learning and how to navigate it in a remote world. A reoccurring theme in these vlogs, what a shame that it took a global pandemic for us to realise the attention we need to give to digital learning, in particular reskilling and upskilling our workforce.
