I frequently have the opportunity to connect with learning professionals in our 4MAT live and web workshops and the consulting work we do. The conversation begins with the application of 4MAT, a model for understanding different learning styles. Inevitably, the dialogue centers around questions on how best to apply brain-based design to real-world leadership and learning issues. As learning gurus, the questions that we collectively seem to be most interested in:
How do we engage learners in the content we are sharing?
What are the best practices in training design and delivery that we can learn from?
What’s the best examples of elearning that truly addresses the way the brain learns?
Where can I find examples of powerful activities that engage different learning styles?
Any new, interesting technologies out there that can make design simpler and delivery more engaging?
The intent of this blog is to ponder these questions and create a forum to share the answers we are discovering. I hope you join the dialogue.
