Interactive teaching methods engage students, study finds – Ottawa Citizen

“VANCOUVER – The popular professor was confident he could trump the newfangled teaching techniques being promoted by Nobel Prize winner Carl Wieman and his disciples.

He agreed to pit his traditional physics lectures against their new approach in a “learning competition” involving more than 500 first-year engineering students at the University of B.C.”

On the Books – Financial Post

“Small business owners, particularly those who require employees to have a specialized skill, can often find it difficult to compete with large companies when seeking to expand staff.

That is because large companies can offer rewarding salaries, benefits and perks, while comparatively smaller companies need to be creative to ensure they can retain existing staff and recruit talent as its client base increases.”

Viewing Training, Marketing, and Documentation Content Through the Learning Lens – Learning Solutions Magazine

“Years ago, the information that training, documentation, and marketing professionals created for their respective audiences contained very distinct and recognizable characteristics. Personnel with differing skill sets and talents in each of these departments developed the content with various intentions.

However, today’s global and digital information landscape requires training, documentation, and marketing practitioners to rethink and repackage information for their demanding and wired audiences.”

The Power Of Interactive Learning – eLearning Coach

“Interactions in learning represent far more than the act of clicking a button or a hyperlink. Our physical bodies are intricately tied up with shaping our experience of the world and it’s time for learning experience designers to take advantage of new research that promotes this line of thinking.”
