708 CANCELLED - Cognition, Emotion, and Social Learning in Learning Design
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, October 27
Historically, adult learning has been about facts. People are experts at filling their brains with facts, but sometimes they forget about relevancy, recall, usability, and impact. How can you design learning that speaks to the “whole learner”? How can you make a dramatic impact and ensure effective performance outcomes?
In this session, you will explore how to design learning programs for the “whole learner,” addressing learners’ cognitive, emotional, and social characteristics. You will examine the concept of learning as the interaction between three dimensions: content, incentive, and interaction. You’ll be introduced to real-world examples of this concept and be provided with an easy process to apply in your own learning design. This session will include an interactive exercise to demonstrate the application of the “whole learner” concept to microlearning and instructional videos.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to recognize the specific cognitive, emotional, and social aspects of a learning deliverable
- How to apply a “whole learner” design process to your learning design
- How to identify the potential for increasing performance through driving the incentive
- How to augment existing learning deliverables with emotional and social engagement
Novice to advanced designers, developers, managers, and directors who are familiar with adult learning theory and basic learning design concepts.
discussed in this session:
