You have something important to teach people, but they're not paying attention. And surveys have shown that only 25% of course material actually improves learners’ performance. Why aren't people learning from or engaging with your coursework? Turns out, it's likely because you're not letting people fail enough. In this session, award-winning instructional designer Scott Provence discusses the surprising studies and research that shows how we actually learn more when we get things wrong.

You will:
  • Compare your rate of failure to world experts and innovators
  • Understand how failure-based courses can quadruple success rates
  • Learn a model for designing playful, "fail-safe" courses from the ground up

Perfect for designers, trainers, and L&D leaders, this session will give you the data and tools you need to improve any material, leveraging the effective and underutilized approach of trial and error.
