How People Learn II Book Excerpt:

There are many reasons to be curious about the way people learn, and the past several decades have seen an explosion of research that has important implications for individual learning, schooling, workforce training, and policy. In 2000, How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience, and School: Expanded Edition was published and its influence has been wide and deep. The report summarized insights on the nature of learning in school-aged children; described principles for the design of effective learning environments; and provided examples of how that could be implemented in the classroom. Since then, researchers have continued to investigate the nature of learning and have generated new findings related to the neurological processes involved in learning, individual and cultural variability related to learning, and educational technologies. In addition to expanding scientific understanding of the mechanisms of learning and how the brain adapts throughout the lifespan, there have been important discoveries about influences on learning, particularly sociocultural factors and the structure of learning environments. How People Learn II: Learners, Contexts, and Cultures provides a much-needed update incorporating insights gained from this research over the past decade. The book expands on the foundation laid out in the 2000 report and takes an in-depth look at the constellation of influences that affect individual learning. How People Learn II will become an indispensable resource to understand learning throughout the lifespan for educators of students and adults.

Course Design Strategy Book Excerpt:

This book is packed with strategies and insights that will help you design better training courses. It focuses on how people learn as the key factor in making design decisions. The book shows you how to design a good course for any field, no matter what medium you use to deliver it. Learn how the brain works, how people forget, how to gain and maintain attention and how to make a subject interesting. Then use the easy-to-follow guidelines to design strategically by increasing curiosity, making content emotional, making learners practise what they have learned and using failure as a teaching tool. The art of designing a course and making people learn is mastered through practical experience of running courses; the science is gained by evidence-based research on how people learn. The book combines the two, offering many examples and studies in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, instructional design and training the trainer. You will find lots of examples and studies in the book that provide insights that may not be obvious but that lead to important design decisions. They will change forever how you think about training design and delivery and help you design courses that your learners will love. In Course Design Strategy, you will learn: · How to make content memorable · What learners expect from a course · How people learn and forget, and why this should be the cornerstone of any course design · How to use eureka moments and eureka concepts as the building blocks of course design · How to make content easy to learn · Why the presence of a feedback loop is crucial to learning · How to use exercises and tests to enhance learning

How People Learn Book Excerpt:

What if we have been wrong about learning? Learning may have more in common with marketing than we thought. Looking at marketing and learning's common root, How People Learn shows L&D professionals a new way of thinking about learning by exploring what happens when we learn. It considers applications from AI, marketing and ethics and is informed by psychology and contemporary neuroscience in order to show L&D professionals how to design training with their employees in mind so that training makes a real difference to skills, capabilities, performance and development, rather than being a waste of time, money and resources. Using the author's '5Di model', How People Learn demonstrates how to define, design and deploy training in a user-centred way so it works both for and with employees. It also includes guidance on what training resources to create when employees are actively searching for learning content. Using this book, L&D practitioners will be able to use pull and push techniques to provide content that people use and experiences that transform their behaviour. From how to use simulations, storytelling and anticipation to the importance of observation and status, this book gives L&D professionals everything they need to build effective training programmes and learning experiences. With a foreword by Dr Roger Schank, the Chairman and CEO of Socratic Arts and Executive Director of Engines for Education, and case studies from companies such as BP and the BBC, this is an urgent read for learning professionals.

Interface Design for Learning Book Excerpt:

In offices, colleges, and living rooms across the globe, learners of all ages are logging into virtual laboratories, online classrooms, and 3D worlds. Kids from kindergarten to high school are honing math and literacy skills on their phones and iPads. If that weren’t enough, people worldwide are aggregating internet services (from social networks to media content) to learn from each other in “Personal Learning Environments.” Strange as it sounds, the future of education is now as much in the hands of digital designers and programmers as it is in the hands of teachers. And yet, as interface designers, how much do we really know about how people learn? How does interface design actually impact learning? And how do we design environments that support both the cognitive and emotional sides of learning experiences? The answers have been hidden away in the research on education, psychology, and human computer interaction, until now. Packed with over 100 evidence-based strategies, in this book you’ll learn how to: Design educational games, apps, and multimedia interfaces in ways that enhance learning Support creativity, problem-solving, and collaboration through interface design Design effective visual layouts, navigation, and multimedia for online and mobile learning Improve educational outcomes through interface design.

Manage Memory for Deeper Learning Book Excerpt:

Does your content interfere with learning? This book shows you how to work within the attributes and limitations of memory, so people can learn, remember, and apply. All tactics are concise, research driven, and easy to apply. You'll learn when we should repeat content and when we should not. What to do to help people remember. How to move from shallow learning to deep learning. Patti supplies examples, checklists, and job aids to help you learn, remember, and apply. If you build instruction for an adult audience, this book will improve your instruction and outcomes! Manage Memory for Deeper Learning describes and shows four research-based strategies and 21 specific tactics for managing memory in adult instruction. The strategies and tactics come from research in cognition, learning, information design, usability, user experience, and comprehension. For each strategy, Patti supplies specific actionable tactics that you can implement right this minute, with examples, checklists, and job aids. Patti Shank, PhD wrote this series of books to help anyone who builds adult instructional materials (content experts, instructors, instructional designers, trainers, and so on) apply research to improve instructional outcomes! Praise for Manage Memory for Deeper Learning In Manage Memory for Deeper Learning, Patti uses research to cut through all the fads and trends, so we can focus our efforts on strategies and tactics proven to make a difference. She breaks down the research and puts it into practical terms that the rest of us can learn, remember, and apply. After reading just the first few chapters, I found myself quoting Patti in meetings as we discussed the best way to tackle a training challenge. Diane, Elkins, Co-founder of Artisan E-Learning and E-Learning Uncovered Patti's superpower is distilling the academic research into clear, straightforward tactics any practitioner can use immediately to make their learning experiences better. She does it again in Manage Memory for Deeper Learning. Highly recommended. Julie Dirksen, Author of Design for How People Learn I want to wallpaper our instructional designer's cubes with the tables and examples from this book. I have few other books (besides Patti's) that give me well-developed research and practice exercises to help my understanding. Easy to read and easy to use, the entire series is a must for instructional designers. Heidi Matthews, VP of Programs ATD Kansas City Most books about instruction are either too basic, providing only a high-level overview, or are too complex, failing to provide practical solutions. Shank rises to this challenge with great skill, offering an in-depth analysis but in simple language. An excellent addition to her Deeper Learning Series, and an excellent resource for anyone who needs people to learn specific skills... and actually use them. I am a great fan of Patti Shank's writing. Christopher Pappas, Founder, eLearningIndustry.com What I find particularly strong in this book is the clear, concise language, the easy-to-understand examples, and the way Patti helps you to connect the tactics. If you design learning experiences, you simply must understand how your design can make or break what people can remember and why remembering is critical for learning and work.

Practice and Feedback for Deeper Learning Book Excerpt:

Practice and Feedback for Deeper Learning studies five strategies and 26 specific tactics to promote deeper learning and application from practice and feedback in adult instruction. If you build instructional materials for an applied adult audience, you NEED this book! Practice and feedback are two of the most essential elements of instruction and getting them right is the difference between instruction that doesn't connect and deep learning and application. Practice is where people go from what to how. Feedback offers information needed for next steps. How we implement these two critical elements make all the difference and this book shows how. The strategies and tactics come from training and adult learning research and were selected because of their impact on training and learning outcomes. The five strategies are: Strategy 1: Analyze the Job Context Strategy 2: Practice for Self-direction Strategy 3: Practice for Transfer Strategy 4: Practice for Remembering Strategy 5: Give Effective Feedback These are the strategies and tactics needed to make instruction more relevant and responsive to today's changing workplace and needs.

Knowing What Students Know Book Excerpt:

Education is a hot topic. From the stage of presidential debates to tonight's dinner table, it is an issue that most Americans are deeply concerned about. While there are many strategies for improving the educational process, we need a way to find out what works and what doesn't work as well. Educational assessment seeks to determine just how well students are learning and is an integral part of our quest for improved education. The nation is pinning greater expectations on educational assessment than ever before. We look to these assessment tools when documenting whether students and institutions are truly meeting education goals. But we must stop and ask a crucial question: What kind of assessment is most effective? At a time when traditional testing is subject to increasing criticism, research suggests that new, exciting approaches to assessment may be on the horizon. Advances in the sciences of how people learn and how to measure such learning offer the hope of developing new kinds of assessments-assessments that help students succeed in school by making as clear as possible the nature of their accomplishments and the progress of their learning. Knowing What Students Know essentially explains how expanding knowledge in the scientific fields of human learning and educational measurement can form the foundations of an improved approach to assessment. These advances suggest ways that the targets of assessment-what students know and how well they know it-as well as the methods used to make inferences about student learning can be made more valid and instructionally useful. Principles for designing and using these new kinds of assessments are presented, and examples are used to illustrate the principles. Implications for policy, practice, and research are also explored. With the promise of a productive research-based approach to assessment of student learning, Knowing What Students Know will be important to education administrators, assessment designers, teachers and teacher educators, and education advocates.

Learn Anything Faster Book Excerpt:

During the last four decades, scientists have engaged in research that has increased our understanding of human cognition, providing greater insight into how knowledge is organized, how experience shapes understanding, how people monitor their own understanding, how learners differ from one another, and how people acquire expertise. From this emerging body of research, scientists and others have been able to synthesize a number of underlying principles of human learning. This growing understanding of how people learn has the potential to influence significantly the nature of education and its outcomes.The committee's appraisal of advanced study is organized around this research on how people learn (see, for example, Greeno, Collins, and Resnick, 1996; National Research Council [NRC], 2000b; 2001a; Shepard, 2000). Our appraisal also takes into account a growing understanding of how people develop expertise in a subject area (see, for example, Chi, Feltovich, and Glaser, 1981; NRC, 2000b). Understanding the nature of expertise can shed light on what successful learning might look like and help guide the development of curricula, pedagogy, and assessments that can move students toward more expert-like practices and understandings in a subject area. To make real differences in students' skill, it is necessary both to understand the nature of expert practice and to devise methods that are appropriate to learning that practice.The design of educational programs is always guided by beliefs about how students learn in an academic discipline. Whether explicit or implicit, these ideas affect what students in a program will be taught, how they will be taught, and how their learning will be assessed. Thus, educational program designers who believe students learn best through memorization and repeated practice will design their programs differently from those who hold that students learn best through active inquiry and investigation.The model for advanced study proposed by the committee is supported by research on human learning and is organized around the goal of fostering

The Learner Centered Instructional Designer Book Excerpt:

“What does a new instructional designer need to know to find her or his feet when working with faculty to create online classes?” This is a practical handbook for established and aspiring instructional designers in higher education, readers who may also be identified by such professional titles as educational developer, instructional technologist, or online learning specialist. Jerod Quinn, together with a team of experienced instructional designers who have worked extensively with a wide range of faculty on a multiplicity of online courses across all types of institutions, offer key guiding principles, insights and advice on how to develop productive and collegial partnerships with faculty to deliver courses that engage students and promote enduring learning. Designing and developing online classes for higher education takes a combination of pedagogical knowledge, the ability to build trust with faculty, familiarity with frameworks on how people learn, understanding of accessibility and inclusion, and technical skills to leverage a learning management system into an educational experience. Coming from diverse backgrounds, few instructional designers enter academia well versed in all of these aspects of creating online classes. This book provides the foundation on which instructional designers can build their careers. The guiding principle that animates this book is that the student experience and successful learning outcomes are paramount, and governs discussion of course design, pedagogy, the use of multimedia and technological advances, as well as the use of different forms of interactive exercises and group assignments. The succinct, informally written chapters offer ideas and means to apply theory to the daily work of instructional design and cover the four key components that drive thus work in higher education: ● Defining the scope and main design approaches of our work ● Building trust with the faculty we work with ● Applying frameworks of how people learn ● Mastering common online instructional practices
