#SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE LEARNING tweet Book03
Instructional Design for Today’s Professionals
by Vicki Halsey, S. Chris Edmonds, and Mitchell Levy
Foreword by Ken Blanchard and Margie Blanchard
Instructional designers understand how people learn best. Their expertise is deployed to build learning experiences that enable rapid and deep absorption of new knowledge or assimilation of previously-absorbed facts. Traditional instructional design (ID), however, tends to go only half of the way because it emphasizes placing the instructor in the driver’s seat. Now, in #SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE LEARNING tweet Book03: Instructional Design for Today’s Professionals (#SCL tweet Book03), authors Vicki Halsey, S. Chris Edmonds, and Mitchell Levy take ID to its logical pinnacle with their meticulously-conceived Brilliance Learning System, predicated on putting the learner first.
The Brilliance Learning System trains corporate leaders to craft learning experiences that build knowledge and skills. This approach creates deep learning that gets retained for the long term and results in engaged, committed, and active learners who are eager and ready to put their new skills into action. The learner-centric foundation outlined in #SCL tweet Book03 requires instructors to aid and enable learners at every turn. The book’s authors approach the model from several angles, creating bite-sized wisdom that is easy to incorporate with immediate effect. For example, they touch upon strategies for helping learners learn out-loud, build knowledge, create their own models for understanding, and finally put those models into action in their lives and workplaces. These strategies result in a dramatically dynamic learning environment, one in which learners, far from being passive recipients of knowledge, are the people who actively perform 70 percent of the talking–and the teaching!
Written in the easy-to-implement tweet format (where each quotation is 140 characters or less), the book is peppered with digestible tips and concrete examples that enable and inspire learners. Anybody who designs learning modules or guides the design of learning experiences will find #SCL tweet Book03 indispensable in creating engaging and vibrant learning experiences–with immediate results!
#SCL tweet Book03 is part of the THiNKaha series whose slim and handy books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).
