Webinar: Using Learning Science to Create Effective Training
December 17, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm EST
Friday, Dec. 17
12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT
Learning is a science, and our day-to-day practice should reflect that fact. All instructional strategies or technologies we deploy must consider how people learn and retain what they have learned.
Join us for this LTEN webinar, as Steven Just Ed.D., CLO of Intela Learning and CEO of Princeton Metrics, shares both the science and the practice of learning. We’ll start by defining learning and then focus on several well-researched principles of learning science:
- Managing cognitive load.
- Creating learning schema.
- The two channels we use to process new information.
- The two different types of long-term memory and how they relate.
- Encoding and re-encoding.
- Desirable difficulties.
- Deliberate practice.
We’ll also show how several instructional strategies and technologies are consistent (or not) with this science, including interleaved practice, microlearning, “delayed” feedback, priming exams, cumulative exams, gamification, multimedia learning and virtual reality.
