Book Description

Products, technologies, and workplaces change so quickly today that everyone is continually learning. Many of us are also teaching, even when it's not in our job descriptions. Whether it's giving a presentation, writing documentation, or creating a website or blog, we need and want to share our knowledge with other people. But if you've ever fallen asleep over a boring textbook, or fast-forwarded through a tedious e-learning exercise, you know that creating a great learning experience is harder than it seems.

In Design For How People Learn, you'll discover how to use the key principles behind learning, memory, and attention to create materials that enable your audience to both gain and retain the knowledge and skills you're sharing. Using accessible visual metaphors and concrete methods and examples, Design For How People Learn will teach you how to leverage the fundamental concepts of instructional design both to improve your own learning and to engage your audience.

Review

If it’s possible to be in love with a book, then I am in love with this one. Julie Dirksen has written a most excellent book for the beginning practitioner as well as the seasoned veteran of instructional design. --Cammy Bean, Vice President of Learning Design, Kineo 

This book is probably the single best book for the person who’s just getting started and wants to know more about instructional design and how people learn. --Tom Kuhlmann, Author of the Rapid E-Learning Blog

I’m delighted to have this witty, insightful, cleverly illustrated guide. --Michael W. Allen, Ph.D., Author of Michael Allen's Guide to E-Learning

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for learning designers! 19 Sept. 2014
Format:Paperback
This book really makes you rethink how you design courses - especially online courses, where it's so much harder to ensure engagement and enough practice. Great chapter on Skills learning design as well - gave me some new ideas!

My colleagues and I really enjoyed reading this and frequently refer to it. In fact, we often compare the layout of other books with this one and the other books always fall short.
A good read and a great reference.
