Accelerated Learning

 

Background

Accelerated Learning was developed in the 1950s but is now widely used in mainstream education in the USA, Canada and Australia. People not only have a dominant learning style (Visual, auditory, or Kinaesthetic), but will process information either in a factual, logical or digital manner (left -brained) or a spatial manner centred on representations, images and concepts (right-brained). A consequence of this is that traditional fact-based learning is associated with very low retention rates. (as much as 80% of ‘learned information ‘ can be lost within a fortnight). Accelerated learning overcomes this by presenting material in all three learning styles in such a way to appeal to both sides of the brain.

We offer short, focused, strategic, high-value interventions

Course Aim

Trainers can dramatically improve their effectiveness by presenting courses in an Accelerated Learning format. This course serves as a detailed introduction to Accelerated Learning and provides a structure which trainers can use to deliver their own in-house programmes in an Accelerated Learning format.

This course will present:

  • The nine-step accelerated learning process
  • The 7 intelligences which determine our learning style
  • Characteristics of right and left brain concepts
  • Dominant learning styles (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic)

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of accelerated learning
  • Develop their own courses using the accelerated learning format
  • Understand the differences between left and right-brained learners
  • Understand the dominant learning styles and how to recognize them
