Course description

Essentials of Evidence-Based Training

A common misconception in many workplaces is the implementation of instructional methods based on invalid research evidence. Throughout this training course, participants will learn the evidence behind teaching for various learning styles, the management of the cognitive load that is imposed during learning, and the most recent and productive engagement methods. This training workshop will include hands-on exercises and discussions of the most recent research and methodology such as games and simulations. Overall, participants will learn which methods are most efficient and the reasons why.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be prepared to:

  • Distinguish between fact and myth regarding learning styles, and the relationship between learner course ratings and actual learning
  • Apply evidence on how the brain works during learning based on the features of working memory and the relationship with long-term memory and the three forms of cognitive load during learning
  • Assess your training materials for sufficient and appropriate engagement
  • Review emerging evidence on games

Who should attend?

The Essentials of Evidence-Based Training workshop is designed for any professionals whose responsibilities include designing, developing, and delivering training lessons. This course additionally benefits any participants who seek to evaluate their materials based on evidence-based guidelines.
