L&D Go Beyond Podcast: Design for How People Learn

Written by

In this episode of the L&D Go Beyond podcast, Amit Garg interacts with Julie Dirksen, an acclaimed author and Learning Design Consultant.

Julie shares her thoughts on memory being the foundation of learning and how repetitive exposures increase memory (if content is relevant) but this fact often gets ignored in learning design. She also emphasizes on the importance of feedback in the digital learning environment. Interestingly, Julie also touches upon frustration with technology which still revolves around content being the basic building block of learning. She feels that if we can replace content with ‘learning action & feedback’ we will see improved technology and learning environments.

Here are some more takeaways from this podcast:

  • How organizations must leverage the consistent set of variables that help people help memorize
  • Role of motivation is learning and how making things more immediate can support motivation
  • Spaced learning and repeated exposure over time to increase learning retention and effectiveness
  • Disposable versus durable learning framework
  • Importance of practice-focus for learning designers
  • How adaptive learning is a great option for designing for novice & experienced learners
  • Challenges faced by learning designers vis-à-vis audience skill levels & solutions
