If you’re familiar with instructional design-related learning theories like behaviorism, constructivism, cognitivism, etc., you may still be left questioning: “but how do people really learn?”

Nick Shackleton-Jones has established himself as a leader in the L&D space and has revolutionized the way that instructional designers do their jobs.

In this Q&A, he discusses how people learn and argues that we don't remember exactly what happens to us...we just remember our reactions to those events, and then we recreate memories based on our feelings.

That means the first step to helping someone learn is getting someone to care.

Follow along as we explore Nick's model as well as actionable steps that you can take to implement it in your own learning design.
