Event Calendar / The Challenge of the Reluctant Learner
Details & Time Frame
The Challenge of the Reluctant Learner
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
