The Mythology of Learning Styles

In my new book, Evidence-based Training Methods (ASTD Press), I conclude my review of research on learning styles with the hope that if readers do nothing else, they abandon time and resources devoted to learning styles in favor of other instructional methods which have much more evidence to support them.  In other words, it’s time to drop the learning styles myth.    What do you think about learning styles?  What makes the learning style idea so compelling?

I’ll devote some future posts to the evidence (or lack thereof) on learning styles that I’ve seen since I wrote my book.

Corporate Universities

First, this is an opinion piece – I have not seen systematic research on the value of corporate universities.  But a recent client experience reinforced something I said in the first edition of Building Expertise: Corporate Universities are often a STEP BACKWARD.

Of course there are many different implementations of Corporate Universities.  But just the name signals an emphasis on education rather than organizational performance improvement.  Education has it’s place – but often the residue of an educational rather than work performance emphasis is transfer failure.   Rather than signal an educational metaphor, how about a title that suggests improved workplace performance such as Capability Development or????  What do you think about corporate universities?
