Are learning styles fad or fiction?  How should you adapt graphics and words for different learners and different learning goals?  Do interesting visuals improve learning?  Are animations better for illustrating how things work than still visuals?  Should visuals be described with audio, text, or both audio and text? How can you accommodate the limits and leverage the strengths of working memory with audio, text, and visuals?   

Based on her new ASTD book, Evidence-based Training Methods, Dr. Ruth Clark will lead you through an interactive tour of proven training techniques, tips and tribal wisdom.   Whether you are a classroom facilitator, course designer, or e-learning developer, this presentation will reveal the latest scientific evidence for training modes and methods proven to work.

Be sure to bring a printed sample  – either a student lesson handout, slides, or e-learning storyboard to evaluate with your colleagues during the presentation.

Learning Objectives:

You will:

  • Apply evidence on learning styles to design visuals, audio, and text in your lesson
  • Identify the kinds of learners that benefit most from visuals
  • Experience the strengths and weaknesses of your working memory
  • Identify the kinds of visuals that are best
  • Identify how best to describe visuals with text and audio
  • Evaluate your lessons for evidence-based use of text, visuals, and audio
