Many subject matter experts are just that, subject matter experts--not experts in the art of teaching, facilitating, or designing. Thousands of authors, trainers, and speakers have great content, but they lack the skills required to convey their content in a way that inspires learners to unleash their brilliance and move the learning to practice.. They often spend 70% of their time on WHAT they are going to teach, and 30% of their time on HOW, when they should be spending 30% on WHAT, and 70% on HOW. Their instructional techniques often are at odds with their message of inclusivity, eagerness for people to learn, and hopes that their content will change lives and organizations. “Brilliance by Design” outlines how to design learning interactions (such as meetings and workshops) that enable people to do their best thinking. Using the tested, signature ENGAGE model, it helps anyone who brings people together for the purpose of learning, problem-solving, or innovating to develop a clear, high-impact training design that unleashes brilliance. It presents a model that enables teachers to analyze learner and teacher needs, create objectives that meet those needs, and incorporate interactive tools that “fire ‘em up,” ensuring all key outcomes are met. To help readers unleash the brilliance in others, this book provides the structure, tools, language, and models needed to create optimal learning experiences from their ideas, practices, models and books. In learning these techniques, readers will achieve powerful outcomes, building communities of learners who share best practices and communicate at a deep and profound level while doing real work.

Instructional designers understand how people learn best. Their expertise is deployed to build learning experiences that enable rapid and deep absorption of new knowledge or assimilation of previously-absorbed facts. Traditional instructional design (ID), however, tends to go only half of the way because it emphasizes placing the instructor in the driver's seat. Now, in "#SUCCESSFUL CORPORATE LEARNING tweet Book03: Instructional Design for Today's Professionals" ("#SCL tweet Book03"), authors Vicki Halsey, S. Chris Edmonds, and Mitchell Levy take ID to its logical pinnacle with their meticulously-conceived Brilliance Learning System, predicated on putting the learner first. The Brilliance Learning System trains corporate leaders to craft learning experiences that build knowledge and skills. This approach creates deep learning that gets retained for the long term and results in engaged, committed, and active learners who are eager and ready to put their new skills into action. The learner-centric foundation outlined in "#SCL tweet Book03" requires instructors to aid and enable learners at every turn. The book's authors approach the model from several angles, creating bite-sized wisdom that is easy to incorporate with immediate effect. For example, they touch upon strategies for helping learners learn out-loud, build knowledge, create their own models for understanding, and finally put those models into action in their lives and workplaces. These strategies result in a dramatically dynamic learning environment, one in which learners, far from being passive recipients of knowledge, are the people who actively perform 70 percent of the talking--and the teaching! Written in the easy-to-implement tweet format (where each quotation is 140 characters or less), the book is peppered with digestible tips and concrete examples that enable and inspire learners. Anybody who designs learning modules or guides the design of learning experiences will find "#SCL tweet Book03" indispensable in creating engaging and vibrant learning experiences--with immediate results! "#SCL tweet Book03" is part of the THiNKaha series whose slim and handy books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).

Pauses constitute a simple technique for enlivening and enhancing the effectiveness of lectures, or indeed of any form of instruction, whether a presentation or in an experiential setting. This book presents the evidence and rationale for breaking up lectures into shorter segments by using pauses to focus attention, reinforce key points, and review learning. It also provides 65 adaptable pause ideas to use at the opening of class, mid-way through, or as closers. Starting with brain science research on attention span and cognitive load, Rice bases her book on two fundamental principles: shorter segments of instruction are better than longer ones, and learners who actively participate in instruction learn better than those who don’t. Pausing helps teachers apply these principles and create student engagement without requiring major changes in their lesson plans. With careful planning, they can integrate pauses into learning sessions with ease and significantly reinforce student learning. They will also gain feedback on students’ comprehension. Rice sets out the characteristics of good pauses, gives advice on how to plan them and how to introduce them to maximum effect. She provides compelling examples and concludes with a repertory of pauses readers can easily modify and apply to any discipline. This book contains a compendium of strategies that any teacher can fruitfully use to reinforce learning, as well as a stepping stone to those seeking to transition to more active learning methods. It: • Makes the case for using pauses • Identifies the primary functions of pauses: focusing, refocusing, enhancing retention, or closing off the learning experience • Provides research evidence from cognitive science and educational psychology • Provides practical guidance for creating quick active learning breaks • Distinguishes between starting, middle, and closing pauses • Includes descriptions, with suggested applications, of 65 pauses

We all want our students to feel safe, collaborate well with others, feel ownership for their learning, and be joyfully engaged in their work. Nevertheless, many teachers end up using language patterns that undermine these goals. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar? We want students to take responsibility for their learning, yet we use language that implies teacher ownership. We want to build positive relationships with students, yet we use sarcasm when we get frustrated. We want students to think learning is fun, yet we sometimes make comments that suggest the opposite. We want students to exhibit good behavior because it's the right thing to do, yet we rely on threats and bribes, which implies students don’t naturally want to be good. What teachers say to students—when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories—affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. In What We Say and How We Say It Matter, Mike Anderson digs into the nuances of language in the classroom. This book's many examples will help teachers examine their language habits and intentionally improve their classroom practice so their language matches and supports their goals.
