How can you turbo charge your strategy for continuing education and professional development programs? Apply the latest learning principles for maximum impact? Market like a pro? And bring it all together with technology that really works?
Month in and month out we strive to help you answer these types of questions through the resource links we share in the Leading Learning newsletter. In this post, we’ve decided to share the “Leading Links” links that got the most clicks between July of 2014 and July of 2015.
Enjoy them. Share them. And, of course, if you want to make sure you get a wealth of similar resources in the year ahead, be sure to subscribe to the free Leading Learning newsletter. (You can unsubscribe at any time, and we never share your information.)

Over on the Leading Learning blog we’ve launched our Stream of Conference™ video series (SoC), a collection of brief, informal videos that will provide content related to the Leading Learning Symposium. While we don’t plan to publish those here going forward, I thought I would share the first one, partly because we are we’re also using SoC to announce the first of our Emphatically Recommended Readings™ – Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning
We think Make It Stick is one of the best books available for summing up the most important research on how we learn – and making useful suggestions for how to create better learning experiences.
Naturally, learning is at the heart of the Leading Learning Symposium – in addition to being part of the name it’s also one of our four threads – and creating effective learning is at the heart of delivering high value learning experiences to drive your education business.
So, this seems like a great reading to start us off, and I felt the key concepts I cover from it would be of value to Tagoras blog readers. These are:
- Prior Knowledge
- Effortful Retrieval
- Spaced Practice
We’ll continue to talk about Make It Stick and also introduce other Emphatically Recommended Readings™ and Stream of Conference™ videos over on the event blog – that’s part of our strategy for applying the concepts emphasized in the book. We hope you’ll join us over on the Leading Learning blog, and if you are a learning leader at the director level or above, at the Leading Learning Symposium in October.
