Available Formats

  • Virtual Classroom Course

Course Outcomes

This web-based training activity design course will:

  • Outline basic principles of brain science.
  • Explain accelerated learning and why it works.
  • Suggest methods for effectively organizing information.
  • Offer ideas for increasing learner engagement and retention.

Course Overview

If they’ve been at the job for more than an hour, most people in training and development will tell you they’ve encountered teaching materials that are not designed well. Instead of participant-focused interactions, many of these deadly courses rely on lectures and other traditional practices. This course discusses easy ways to transform training so it caters to how the brain is wired. Program participants will learn tips for creating good programs from the ground up and rehabilitating ineffective content.

Program Objectives

At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Explain how brain science should influence instructional design.
  • Gain some new ideas for engaging their learners.
  • Organize information effectively.
  • Increase the level of information their participants retain.
  • Have more fun facilitating.

Program Modules

  • The Brain: Why It Matters to Designers
  • Basic Principles of Accelerated Learning: Preparation, Presentation, Practice, and Performance
  • Rules for Organizing Information: Helping People Make Connections
  • Influencing the Environment: Space, Sound, Smell, and So Forth
