Brain Glue: the best and worst strategies for making training stick

Hermann Ebbinghaus demonstrated in the 19th century that as much as 80% of what we are taught is forgotten within 30 days.

As more companies use e-learning to transfer knowledge, Brain Glue, a white paper written by doctoral researcher at Aston Business School Alan Lee and chief executive of Elephants Don’t Forget Adrian Harvey, looks at how learning and development professionals can support employees to remember what they are taught.

The white paper examines Kent State University professor of psychology John Dunlosky’s research on effective student learning and draws parallels with employee learning in the workplace.

It analyses the effectiveness of 10 learning techniques including student favourites such as highlighting/underlining and re-reading, and looks at which methods are most likely to succeed in the workplace.
