Tom Hickmore, Nice Media

After early success as a video artist, by 1987 Tom Hickmore had turned his attention to corporate video. In 1996 he began to specialize in drama for learning. Tom has worked for an enormous range of clients in pretty much every sector. Courses he’s contributed to, video he’s made, plus his personal short films have all won awards.

The learning sector produces a good deal of drama, but its knowledge of the form is patchy. As a result, video drama for learning does not have the best reputation. In ‘Watch & Learn’, Tom sets out to change this, distilling his years of experience into a concise reference aimed at people at the frontline of L&D. The book covers everything from the role of drama in the workplace to tools for storytelling, character design and writing dialogue.

Whether you are a learning designer who wishes to raise their game or an L&D head who wants to know just what drama can do for you, this book will help. With each chapter summarised in handy learning points, it’s easy to jump around and join up the learning to suit yourself.
