One of the talks I give regularly is a rant about various bad ideas in learning that I don’t like. I initially started doing this mainly as therapy for myself, but I found that other people seem to get some cathartic value of it as well. Anyway, I gave my most recent version of this talk in a webinar I did for the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI).
In this one, the targets I attack are:
- Learning styles
- Short attention spans
- Awareness training
- Bloom’s taxonomy
- Serious games
- Learning in the flow of work
- The accelerating pace of change
If you are someone who enjoys a good rant, and want to be able to argue your position effectively against bad ideas in learning, this might be worth a watch.
