@TisForTraining 292: The More Painful the Failure, the More Effective the Lesson

Clark QuinnOn tonight’s show was Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Diane Huckabay, Tom Haymes, and our guest, Clark Quinn, a frequent author. Quinn came to talk about his new book, Learning Science for Instructional Designers: From Cognition to Application (released in April 2021).  This book is for a broad range of people beyond instructional designers, including coaches and parents. He wants people, who read the book to be able to create learning experiences for themselves and others that help people achieve the learning they want.
We talked about sections of the book, developing training (classes) in academic institutions, and creating training in libraries.  One thing that came up was that a training session may not be what is needed. For example, would a job aid be better?  And what happens after the training to reinforce what they needed from the training?
Great quote from the book (p. 20):
we can facilitate, or hinder, comprehension by the choices we make.
Clark Quinn is always a wonderful guest! And this show was as packed with information as his latest book. Give it a listen, the buy the book.
