When I’ve attended eLearning conferences and workshops, one thing I’ve noticed is that instructional designers are always hungry for more research and knowledge on how people learn and what they can do to help them learn better.
We actually know a lot about how people learn and develop skills. Cognitive science research on learning, behavior change, and the development of expertise has provided a wealth of information. Unfortunately, much of that wisdom is locked in scholarly journal articles and dense—dare I say boring?—books, so instructional designers often rely on traditional methods that are not supported by science, or as much science as they could be.
That’s where eLearning Rockstar Marty Rosenheck comes in.
Marty is an expert on cognitive science and learning experience design. AND, he is here to share his knowledge with you in this session that was just added to the DevLearn 2018 schedule! Attend his session this October in Las Vegas to hear his 7 research-based guidelines for learning experience design.
Practical Guidelines from Cognitive Science for Creating Awesome Learning
This session will provide you with seven practical guidelines that have been distilled from the research for designing excellent learning experiences. For each guideline, we will see how they were derived from research and theory, see examples of how it has been implemented in the workplace, and discuss how it can be applied to improve your own designs. You’ll leave with a few solid takeaways that you can use to create truly awesome learning experiences that really get results.
In this session, you will learn…
- Seven research-based guidelines for learning experience design
- How these guidelines can be used to create learning activities that gets results
- How these guidelines apply to formal, on-the-job, and social learning experiences
- Things to stop doing because they are NOT supported by the research
