Learning Myths and Popular Promises - Virtually There Webinar Recap

The Learning Guild’s Director of Research, Dr. Jane Bozarth, separates fact from fiction in this Learning Myths and Popular Promises Virtually There webinar.

This webinar replay is perfect for an experienced practitioner who understands that research doesn’t support designing training that accommodates myths like learning styles, personality types, and generational differences and why. 

Dr. Bozarth examines what learning style research really says and explores ways of applying this information to your practice—even though that may mean making plans for what to do instead. You'll also find out why these ideas are so appealing, how common myths spread and how to leverage facts in conversation with stakeholders.

Research agrees that we are all different learners. The concern is that it is easy to overly simplify and pass along misinformation, which is why it's so important for learning professionals to stay current on the latest generational and learning style research. In her many years of thorough research on learning styles, Dr. Bozarth found, overwhelmingly, that attempts to match instruction style to learners’ preferred approach does not improve outcomes.
