Making Learning Memorable


Published on

From Linda Warren's E-Learning Symposium 2011 Austin presentation:

When we design training we need to think about what is meaningful to our intended audience and design a learning experience that meets their needs. Marketing concepts, motivational factors, knowledge of learning strategies, and adult learning principles can be combined to create remarkable E-Learning. In this session we’ll look at examples of online training and participate in exercises to analyze what makes learning memorable.

Session will focus on:

• Effective marketing principles from Made to Stick
• Learning principles from Telling Ain’t Training and Malcom Knowles
• Motivation principles from Maslow
• Learning strategies
