Webinar Recording Details


Most eLearning, webinars and face-to-face training focus on memorization. Critical thinking and building expertise are left to chance. As a result, this environment adds to failure on the job, poor performance and yet costly training. Furthermore, the challenge has been that software for learning systems reinforces memorization and discourages thinking and reflection. However, on the contrary, when tasks change quickly and business leaders want demand agility, critical thinking and rapid expertise development is the new norm. 

In this webinar, Ray will share with you his experiences. Topics to cover: 
  • What are the costs to business when critical thinking is not part of work processes? 
  • When is memorization as learning ever justified? 
  • What is the science in “instant thinking” and “deep dive thinking”? 
  • How would you design a learning experience that fosters critical thinking and rapid expertise development? 
  • A walkthrough and demo of an in-house software project that accelerates expertise development, critical analysis, solutions generations and success impacts reporting will be shared.
