Evidence-Based Training Methods

By  Ruth Colvin Clark

Evidence-Based Training Methods

>>A new edition of this book is now available from ATD Press.

Thanks to a growing body of research evidence, we've learned a great deal in the last 20 years about which methods really work when training people. Yet many trainers are still using time-honored methods and assuming that they work—despite recent evidence to the contrary.

Evidence-Based Training Methods summarizes the most up-to-date evidence we have about critical decisions faced by training professionals every day. Whether you're a classroom instructor, developer of training materials, training manager, or designer or developer of any form of e-learning, you'll find your training will be vastly more effective when you base your methods on evidence. You'll learn about:

  • the three key components of all training
  • how to make training personal by leveraging basic human social instincts
  • five proven laws of practice in training
  • how to avoid death by PowerPoint
  • four common training myths and how to redirect resources wasted on them.

Throughout the book, you'll find quizzes, guidelines, charts, graphs, and cartoons to make your own learning experience an effective one. You'll discover how to maximize learning through visuals and words, apply examples and practice to strengthen your instructional methods, and leverage learning architectures to organize your training content.
