Practising Law Institute
Much of corporate online training is mandatory; training many learners would prefer to skip. Assuming there are motivated learners out there can be a costly mistake for instructional designers. So how do you teach the reluctant learner?
Participants in this session will examine the issue of motivation in learners and hear suggestions for addressing learner reluctance. You’ll see examples such as story-driven lessons and goal-based activities that introduce additional motivational factors. If you are responsible for training reluctant learners, you’ll benefit from understanding and knowing how to address these learners’ issues.
In this session, you will learn:
- How motivation affects learning
- Why assuming you have motivated learners is costly
- How exposition doesn't work for reluctant learners
- That usability research underscores how little learners read onscreen
- About methods to address reluctant learners
