I’m thrilled to be part of the 7th annual L&D Talks by Stimulearning in Brussels, Belgium. In the morning, I’ll be making my first keynote address in front of an audience of learning professionals from all over the world.
I recently had the pleasure to join a panel discussion sponsored by the prestigious global magazine, Training Journal. Our host, Jo Cook, was the consummate emcee and kept things moving along. We had over 100 live participants and three scholar-practitioners to answer their questions in real-time.
Your brain dedicates about 25% of its entire processing power to vision, which probably explains why we understand images 60,000 times faster than words or numbers. So why are we filling our training materials with so much text when we can tell the story better in pictures? Social media and news organizations have long recognized…
If you have kept abreast of the literature in the past few years, it is fairly common knowledge that there are not enough people to fill the gaps left by the Baby Boomers as they exit the workforce.
If you could understand what was happening in the brains of your target audience, would you be a more effective trainer, designer, consultant, or leader? Thanks to recent advances in neuroscience, learning and talent development professionals now have an opportunity to alter their approaches to change management, leadership development, training, and instructional design.
The Day Everything Changed: How AI Changed the Way We Learn in 2027.
While science fiction depicts a world where intelligent robots rebel and overthrow their human masters, the more likely scenario is a world where human beings interface with computers, digital assistants and other technologies virtually seamlessly, changing just about everything we know about work today.
Last year, I was honored to join the team for the first Training, Learning and Development Conference (TLDC). This innovative conference is built around learning best practices, so you can come back from the conference refreshed, with new neural pathways already firing from new connections, new insights and the time to absorb and reflect. This…
The role of reflection in learning is well-established and dates back at least to educator/philosopher John Dewey, who said “We do not learn from experience … we learn from reflecting on experience.”
In this webinar we’ll explore the neuroscience of infographics and why they work. You’ll learn a simple step-by-step process for creating your own infographics as well as a list of “dos and don’ts” to ensure that your next infographic is an effective learning tool.
In this workshop, you will learn how to leverage the survival imperative to boost employee engagement, enhance performance and accelerate learning by speaking to the brain in its own language.
