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.
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
Explain how brain science should influence instructional design.
Build a course visualization map to verify a brain-friendly design.
Create courses and activities using the four stages of accelerated learning.
Organize information for greater stickiness.
Design for all five senses.
