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.
