About the book

Learning and Development (L&D) programmes are too often based on fads, the latest trends or course designers' personal preferences without critical evaluation. In a time when L&D professionals are fighting to ensure training is recognized as adding value, not just as a cost and the pressure to prove the ROI of learning interventions is rising, there is an urgent need to move away from this type of design and towards an evidence-based approach. Evidence-Informed Learning Design will allow L&D practitioners 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 explaining the importance of cognitive load, this book will ensure L&D professionals are fully equipped with the knowledge they need to decide how best to test, measure and reinforce learning in both online, offline and face-to-face scenarios. It ensures that practitioners make defensible design decisions, understand what learning technologies are really worth investing in and demonstrate the value and impact on performance of evidence-based learning design to key organizational stakeholders. Essential reading for anyone responsible for designing learning, this book enables employees to effectively develop the skills the business needs to succeed.
