Instructional Designers In Offices Drinking Coffee

Why Most Learning Fails & How to Fix It: With Special Guest Tim Slade

Episode Summary

Let’s admit it: most learning is a total failure! The sad reality is that most courses require learners to sit through a disappointing experience, where information is poorly organized, the content isn’t relevant, and the interactions seem contrived and without purpose. This is compounded even more when the slideshow-like presentation is interrupted with several poorly-written quiz questions and cheesy animations to make it all seem “fun.” In this IDIODC session, Brent and Chris bring on the one and only Tim Slade to talk about revamping ineffective eLearning! During this cast you will explore many of the reasons why most learning fails and the components that contribute to bad learning design. At the end of this session, you will walk away with several practical methods you can immediately apply to design learning that delivers results. Tim Slade is a Speaker, Author & Award-Winning Freelance eLearning Designer. Having spent the last decade working to help others elevate their eLearning and visual communications content, Tim has been recognized and awarded within the eLearning industry multiple times for his creative and innovative design aesthetics. He is also a regular speaker at international eLearning conferences, co-author of the popular E-Learning Uncovered book series, and author of The eLearning Designer’s Handbook.
