About the book

Learning and Development (L&D) programmes are too often based on fads, the latest trends or learning designers' personal preferences without critical evaluation. Evidence-Informed Learning Design allows learning professionals to move away from this type of approach by showing them how to assess and apply relevant scientific literature, learning science research and proven learning techniques to design their training in a way that will make a measurable difference to employee performance and overall business success.

Packed with tips, tools and examples, Evidence-Informed Learning Design enables L&D and training professionals to save both time and money by ensuring that efforts are focused on designing learning that's proven to be effective.

Covering techniques like interleaving and self-directed and self-regulated learning, as well as debunking myths and fallacies in the field, it covers how best to test, measure and reinforce learning in both online, offline and face-to-face scenarios. To ensure that employees develop the skills the business needs to succeed and that the L&D function is recognised as adding true organizational value, this book is essential reading for anyone responsible for designing learning.
