If learning is a science, effectiveness claims should be subject to the same verification standards as other scientific fields.
Fortunately, research in cognitive science and neuroscience over the past 20 years has helped us gain a much better understanding of how people actually learn. Unfortunately, we often ignore, or are unaware of, this research and our day-to-day practice is highly susceptible to the allure of seemingly plausible, but untested, ideas, fads and hype.
In this workshop we will take a scientific look at a number of learning strategies and technologies and reveal what the research literature says about their effectiveness.
Make your training programs more effective by learning what works!
