Show Notes

This episode is part of the Learning Uncut Disruption series.  This pop-up daily series aims to equip learning professionals with practical guidance and tips to get started or scale up with practices needed as part of their organisational response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Clark Quinn has a Ph.D. in applied cognitive science and deep experience in learning system design and learning technology.  His book Debunking Learning Myths challenges a wide range of common myths and misconceptions that are traps for the unwary learning professional.  In this episode we discuss why myths perpetuate, look at what the evidence says about some common myths and practical tips for how to think and work in a more evidence-informed way.  Be sure to check out the resources page in the show notes as Clark has done the heavy lifting and put together a list of reputable ‘learning science translators’ to keep you informed.
