PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lecturing on its own is ineffective. But what's the alternative? Combine the best of brain science and learning theory with the power of choice.
Let Them Choose, a new book by adult learning experts Jillian Douglas and Shannon McKenzie, shows you how to get adult learners out of their seats and into station-based activities catered to distinct learning preferences, interaction types, and technology options. Part experiential, part social, and part emotional, the Cafeteria Learning style model encourages learners to explore and absorb content at their own speed and direction. It puts learners in the best position to succeed.
Apply content (the ingredients) to a variety of interchangeable activities (the recipes) that result in learning experiences (the meal) that acknowledge the diversity of your learners. Allow them to decide whether to collaborate, compete, move around, or reflect, on the own, with a partner, or in a group.
"Finally, a book that speaks the truth about the perils of corporate training," says Tracey L. Adams, PhD, Change and Learning Strategist at Nike. "Bravo to Jillian and Shannon for addressing the action-oriented, give-it-to-me-quickly learning needs of today's adults. Cafeteria Learning will be the next evolution of design criteria to usher instructional designers, trainers, and change strategists into the future."
