If we want to truly reap the rewards of performance improvement, success, retention, and business growth, there needs to be seismic shift from a content focus, or even an experience focus, to a learner focus. If we truly believe in creating Meaningful, Memorable, and Motivational learning experiences that improve performance, we need to re-think how we approach our formula for success.
Join Dr. Michael Allen and Ethan Edwards of Allen Interactions and Allen Academy to uncover:
- What it looks like to move past content-focused and experience-based instruction to truly learner-centric learning
- Discover the elements that make up “the whole learner experience” that we call “The Learner’s Journey”
- Uncover practical “Learner’s Journey” instruction design strategies that can transform learning experience designs for maximum effectiveness and success
About Dr. Michael Allen
Dr. Allen has defined unique methods of instructional design and development to provide Meaningful, Motivational, and Memorable learning experiences through "true" cognitive interactivity. He developed the advanced design and development approaches used at Allen Interactions, including CCAF-based design and the SAM process for iterative, collaborative development.
Dr. Michael Allen was the Director of Advanced Educational Systems research and development of Control Data Corporation's famous PLATO computer-based education system used around the world.
