"This is Your Brain on Training: How to Boost Learning Retention Using the Latest Discoveries in Neuroscience" with John Juzbasich

Speaker in the Spotlight Podcast

March 3 — ASTD-PHL's Josh Maleeff interviews John Juzbasich on about his upcoming program on March 12. Listen in below.

Program Description:

It is estimated that adult learners retain only 10% of what is taught in workshops and recall only 5% of what is taught when the instructor relies solely on PowerPoint slides.  What can you do as a trainer, instructional designer or training manager to improve those numbers?  How can training be designed so that learners remember and apply what they learn?  Bottom line: how do we make training stick?


John Juzbasich, our March speaker, has the answers.  As the CEO of Merit Systems LLC, John knows what makes the difference between ho-hum training and truly impactful training.  John will explore how adults learn based on discoveries about how our brains collect, organize, and manage new information.  Participants will be guided through a 4-step learning process called the Learning Cycle and then practice applying each step to an actual training module.  The insights gained through this exercise will enable participants to develop training that resonates long after the actual session is over.

Mark your calendar now for this intriguing journey into the world of learning and neuroscience!
