5 Ways to Use Goal-Based Learning

Rob Hubbard

It tickles and frustrates me in equal measure when I hear people say that they “…don’t believe in blended learning.” They seem to think it is something new – the latest fad in learning.

Rob Hubbard

We all know instinctively that the best way to learn a new skill is by practicing it. Pilots use flight simulators, in driving lessons we use dual-control cars and we learn to swim with floats. I’ve always been very interested in how we learn new skills; how we put into practice those things that we learn. elearning Learning Practice Learning styles Uncategorized

Brain’s Rule! – How Understanding the Brain Can Improve Your Learning Content

Rob Hubbard

Increasingly I find myself turning away from learning theories and looking to brain science to hel p me design engaging and effective learning content.

Learning Styles and E-Learning

This post is going to be somewhat different than in the past, specifically a result of the argument of the effectiveness of learning styles and if they even exist.

The Learning Styles Myth

Association eLearning

Some time ago, a colleague of mine wrote a blog called Learning Myths: Debunked , in which he stated that learning styles is a myth.
