About the book
How can I design training so that it makes a real difference to employees' skills and development? This book gives L&D professionals everything they need to build effective learning experiences.
How People Learn provides L&D professionals a new way of thinking about learning by exploring what happens when we learn. It shows how to apply insights from neuroscience, human behaviour and artificial intelligence (AI) to learning design including tips on how to interest, excite and engage staff in training. Using the author's '5Di model', this book demonstrates how to define, design and deploy training into existing workflows so it works both for and with employees. It also explores how simulations can be used to replicate a real-world challenge as closely as possible.
The second edition features new material on learning in a hybrid world, and how to manage skills development and performance now that work, workplaces and workers have changed. It includes more practical guidance on building programmes with user-centred design and covers developments in the connection between learning and cognition, alongside case studies and examples from companies such as BP and the BBC.

- Nick's book starts in the right place: he sees the world through the lens of a psychologist rather than a pusher of e-learning (from the previous edition).
