Description
Professionals in the Training and Development field refer often to the “adult learner,” but is that really a useful construct when so much corporate training is mandatory and learner motivation is missing? When adult learners are taking sexual harassment training for the third time in six years—or fill in your own mandatory compliance regimen—you ought to be thinking deeper about how to insure that important lessons are learned and that training doesn’t become a wasted, check-the-box exercise.

Unfortunately, corporate learning and development organizations have borrowed models from other areas, namely academia and publishing, that don’t always work well in mandatory learning situations. L&D professionals need to break away from those models, and their reliance on exposition, because intrinsic and extrinsic motivational elements are not as prominent in corporate education.

So how do you teach the “reluctant learner?” Participants in this session will examine the issue of learner motivation and hear suggestions for addressing learner reluctance. You’ll see examples of story-driven lessons and goal-based activities that introduce motivational “pulls, “pushes,” and “inducements” to get learners to focus on content.

If you are responsible for training reluctant learners, you’ll benefit from knowing more about meeting the challenges they present.

In this session, you will learn:
• How motivation is a critical factor affecting learning
• Why assuming you have motivated learners can be a costly mistake
• Why academia and publishing are poor models for corporate training
• How proper use of media can help
• How exposition doesn't work for reluctant learners
• What usability research says about reading of on-screen text
• What some of the best methods are to address reluctant learners
Who Should Participate
Instructional designers and members of learning and development organizations responsible for delivering mandatory training, such as compliance training.

I appreciate that the speaker's background is in elearning and instructional design; however I could tell he read his presentation. Recommend his speaker notes not be word for word but key words to ensure he is engaging and conversational... :) 3 / 5

while the content was good and the speaker knowledgable I was driven to distraction by the speed at which he spoke. Way to slow for me and too much time given to look over slides. Just my opinion. 3 / 5
