Over the last thirty years, cognitive science has made tremendous progress in understanding the nature of expertise and what works (and what doesn't) to increase learning. However, while helping people in key talent segments grow their expertise is incredibly valuable, organizations are still not applying what's been discovered in a systematic way: We're still not doing much "learning engineering." In this Keynote Video, Dr. Bror Saxberg, Chief Learning Officer at Kaplan, Inc., shares new insights from the science of learning and what it takes to bring more "learning engineering" to bear in your organization.
Key insights include:
- How to apply discoveries in learning science at scale in an organization to drive real-world performance.
- Why subject matter experts often have difficulty imparting their wisdom and how Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA) can fill the gaps in their teaching.
- A discussion of Working vs. Long-term Memory and how each fits into the learning process.
- Dr. Saxberg’s “checklist for learning” to evaluate any learning program or environment against what really works.
