Why do we need evidence based learning?

Why do we need evidence based learning?

The roots of traditional ‘classroom’ training still lie in the 18th century industrial revolution. Even the inputs from 20th century psychology and technology have left us focusing on knowledge acquisition. In the 21st century and beyond we have to focus on skills for a modern workforce.

We move away from training and aspire towards learning

Move away from...
  • Myth of passive knowledge absorbers 
  • Out of date models / learning theories 
  • Competition, isolation, expert view only 
  • PowerPoint and lecture heavy 
  • One size fits all 
  • Forgettable, single event training 
  • Unstimulating presentation - sitting and listening 
  • Emphasis on testing rather than learning 
  • Theoretical knowledge – no work context 
  • Time wasted - Forgetting/ retraining 
  • No tangible results
Aspire towards
  • Learners making new neural connections 
  • Cutting edge, evidence-based techniques 
  • Co-operation, peer support, social learning 
  • Blended delivery – right tools/ best results
  • Learner focussed, personalisation 
  • Strong memory links, spaced repetition 
  • Enjoyable physical learning – whole brain and body 
  • Growth mindset, focus on performance 
  • Real and contextual skills practice 
  • Time invested - sticky knowledge and applicable skills 
  • Data driven, measurable ROI

Standing on the shoulders of giants​.

Relentless research, practical experience and many years on the front line of learning: that's the secret to our methodology. But we don't stop there. To build on this knowledge and bring you relevant, science-based learning that works, we collaborate with industry leading experts.

Our co-founder

Stella Collins

is author of 'Neuroscience for
Learning and Development'
Our

research project

on learning analytics with the University of Antwerp aims to support learner success and organisational return on investment. 
We are active participants in international

learning and technology networks


Our training tracks are
co-designed with our

Learning Scientists

and our specialist

Knowledge Partners

 
We have an expert

advisory board

for each of our topics plus a learning advisory board 

The Methodology, our DNA.

Five pillars for deep learning, long term knowledge retention and skills mastery

People

The learners are at our heart, they will learn and receive constant mentoring from our knowledge partners (experts in their field). All training programmes are evaluated by advisory board members (international experts) to ensure relevant, updated and future focused programmes.

The MASTER model.

This is our process to create the most effective training out there.

Motivate Minds

Engage, inspire and promote your innate motivation - what's in it for me?

Absorb Information

Multisensory materials, tools and input make learning stickier.

Search for Meaning

Explore and experiment to create meaning and context.

Trigger memories

Creating strong memory hooks for transfer to long term memory.

Exhibit learning

Test, practice, apply, evaluate and consolidate knowledge and skills improving speed to performance.

Review to retain

Spaced repetition and recall ensures people remember for the long term.

Learning Experience.

Digital Preparation

Entry into your digital learning journey. Self-paced digital preparation and updates to prime you with all the necessary knowledge before and after the Labs.

Mentoring & Feedback

Personal mentoring and feedback from mentors, peers and our platform stretch, challenge and refine skills leading to mastery.

Spaced Learning / Repetition

Regularly repeated recall activities in our mobile app transfer knowledge from short to long term memory.

Extension Activities

Regular checks and nudges for up to 6 months keep knowledge fresh and relevant, strengthen skills and help to build professional networks.
