What I'm Reading...

There's a good article in the NYT called Forget What You Know About Good Study Habits that addresses, some myths about learning and what the research actually shows.  A good quick read for both association educators and parents of kids in school!

Then, if that piques your interest read Evidence-Based Training Methods:  A Guide for Training Professionals (Ruth Colvin Clark).  It's available through ASTD and Amazon.  It's been on my shelf for a few months and I finally made the time to read it last week, and I'm glad I did.  This should be required reading for all educators/trainers!  First, it addresses some common learning myths like the use of learning styles.  Then, it covers current education/training research and how to apply it in education/training.
