The cognitive power of error

Clive on Learning

This week I chaired three very enjoyable sessions at Learning Technologies 2013. These were with cognitive neuroscientist Dr Itiel Dror talking about memory, Professor Stephen Heppell , discussing lifelong learning, and Associate Professor of Learning Technology Steve Wheeler , sharing his vision for future technologies. like chairing sessions because they give me the chance to really immerse myself in the subjects, without any distractions for an hour at a time. It's not difficult to teach rules and procedures - sound instructional practices will probably do the trick. How do we do this?

The role of the backup trainer was to assist any students who might have fallen behind the instructor, or simply assist those students in need of a bit of extra help. If the class size was larger than 15 students, many training companies would split the class into manageable sizes, requiring multiple rooms and multiple lead instructors.
