Consistency is key in training, and is extremely important as part of your instructional design best practices when creating courses for adult learners.

Do you know about the four Stages of Learning? In our workshop, How Adults Learn, we introduce new instructors to these important stages. Everyone starts out at stage one as a Novice.

We are constantly bombarded with information these days and the challenge is how to retrieve it when we need it! I recently saw the film “La La Land” and was amused by how often the young lead character could not remember where she parked her car.

A recent conversation with a client revolved around the self-esteem of adult learners. In the 1970’s, Malcolm Knowles wrote extensively about learning principles relating to self-esteem specifically in adult learners.

When designing elearning training sessions, instructional designers may spend a lot of time, energy, and resources on how the content will look on the web page. Learners respond well to a graphically pleasing elearning module but it’s also important to pay attention to the actual content of an elearning quiz!

“Thank you for attending.” Have you ever been to a course where the instructor closed with this statement? I have and it left me feeling somewhat disappointed. It would have benefited me had the instructor closed the course with a review of the day’s content.

The things we do for love, but that’s for another time. So here I am, a permanent resident of the United States and I realize I don’t have a Georgia Driver’s License.
