  Learning Strategies and Technologies – What Actually Works?

Steven Just

About This Event

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.

Among these are:

  • Microlearning
  • VR 
  • Learning Styles
  • Adaptive questioning 
  • Narration and Audio 
  • Video Priming exams 
  • Cumulative exams 
  • Dale's Cone of Experience
  • Interleaved practice
  • Gamification
  • 70-20-10
  • Adaptive/Personalized Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
Make your training programs more effective by learning what works!

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Identify emerging trends in cognitive and neuroscience. 
  • Be able to state how our understanding of cognitive science relates to the effectiveness of learning strategies and technologies. 
  • Be able to distinguish among different learning strategies and technologies and identify those that have been proven to work.
