Cafeteria style learning is an approach to learning that allows instructional designers (chefs) to apply content (ingredients) to a variety of interchangeable activities (recipes), resulting in an informal classroom workshop in which each learner builds a customized learning experience (meal). It's the answer to passive, choiceless training that has become the norm. You want to see learners light up, not shut down. You want learners to choose from a cornucopia of learning experiences, rather than being force-fed learning. You want to see your company reap the benefits of well-executed training programs rather than grumble about their ineffectiveness. You want to transform workplace learning for the better. Join us in this session to learn how.

Application on the Job:

  • Identify research on how the brain learns best. 
  • Explain why moving around a room and learning experientially is so much more powerful than sitting in your seat. 
  • Discuss how choice enhances the learning process. 
  • Identify the components of a cafeteria style learning session.
