How to Create Great Learning Experiences by Understanding the Human Mind’s Learning Mechanisms

Wednesday, January 27, 2021 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST  
Host: Future Workplace Webinars
By: Gregg Collins, Chief Learning Scientist, NIIT

We know a lot about how the mind learns. Unfortunately, this knowledge is too often ignored in corporate learning. Passive, teach-by-telling approaches still predominate in a world in which digital learning technology has made it possible to give each learner an individual immersive learning experience. In this talk, I will discuss the key elements of learning science, and describe how a methodology I call E=MC5 provides a recipe for the creation of effective learning experiences.

Join us and learn how:

  • The human mind learns naturally.
  • Designers can exploit an understanding of this.
  • The E=MC5 framework provides a recipe for great learning.
  • Game design can offer valuable lessons for learning designers.
  • Analyzing mistakes can be a key enabler of learning effectiveness.
