I am hoping that this will be the decade of maturation for the learning industry. Part of that maturation will involve disseminating and applying relevant research findings from the learning sciences. In this episode, I speak with Mirjam Neelen about the conclusions that learning researchers agree on, how to identify learning myths and how to incorporate evidence-informed learning strategies into your work.
Mirjam is a coauthor of Evidence-Informed Learning Design: Creating training to improve performance. She is a learning advisory manager with over 10 years of industry experience. In her current role, she leads learning experience design processes across Accenture’s various business entities globally.
