Emotions are on rebirth (Tomaso, 2018) in science research, social media, communications, and education and learning (Lisa Fieldman Barrett, 2017). Through decades, the Learning and Development (L&D) practices have been biased in logical content instruction and minimized the role and contribution of emotions as science. Consequently, learning lessons are devoid of emotional connections, feelings, and affective methods. This is apparent in boredom and burnout in face-to-face training, eLearning, and webinars. (Also, see Clark Quinn, 2021)
In this webinar, discussions will cover research on emotions and simple practical methods that you can apply in designing learning lessons.
Topics covered:
●     What does scientific research say about emotions and its role in behavioral change and learning?
●     How do emotions generate and impact behavioral change?
●     What do we know about emotions, but failed to apply in learning design?
●     What are the paradoxes in training instruction and emotional experience?
●     What is the “Content Logic Plus Emotion Framework”?
●     How to make practical applications of emotions in:
  • Learning objectives
  • Content presentation
  • Recall and memory
  • Applications
Join the webinar and obtain the “Content Logic Plus Emotion Framework” document.
