    An interesting concept, but the ideas are never really fleshed out There s a lot of repetition and lists Skimming the introduction pretty much gives you the entire book Some in depth dissection of AL lessons and techniques would have gone a long way.

    As a professional trainer, I like to read books that help improve my training skills I d read about the theories of accelerated learning in the past, and wanted to see them in a practical context I should start by saying that this book does contain some useful ideas about making training dynamic, involving and interesting for learners, which can t help but make it effective Author Meier also provides some good Examples from the field that help to illustrate what he s talking about in a concrete way But unfortunately, at 15 years old, the book is also hopelessly out of date The technology the author vaguely describes is ancient by today s computer standards, so it s difficult to apply He strongly advocates the use of overhead transparencies, which nobody uses any in the age of PowerPoint He barely mentions the Internet, only briefly touching on its potential Many of the companies listed at the back don t have websites, some don t even have an email address, and some have doubtless gone out of business since this book was published But this is trivial as you can always find resources if you look What s worse is what he believes about learning that is, quite frankly, wrong I m the first one to agree that most presentations are terrible, but this guy seems to think that the inability to sit still for a few minutes is the fault of the presenter, not the listener He blathers on about left and right brain dominance, even though that s just a myth He also talks about learning styles, another legend that research has thoroughly debunked He says learners should assess themselves while it can help to some degree if they try to gauge what they ve learned, over 20 years training experience tells me that a non expert learner unfamiliar with educational techniques is not automatically a good self evaluator and needs a lot of support in this task He makes a lot of sweeping generalizations about the effectiveness of his techniques in comparison with traditional modes of learning In an attempt to justify his assertions, he sometimes cites research, presumably found in the books mentioned in a reference list at the back, but he does not specify from which text he got his facts , so it s impossible to follow up About half way through the book, he also stops providing practical examples of training that use his techniques the sections on imagery, natural light, aromas, computers, and course design are all missing this helpful feature It makes you wonder just how effective these are And there is no mention of how well these techniques work across cultures, or how to adapt them for such application.At first, I was going to give this book 3 stars for some interesting and creative ideas But too much of the material is out of date, unsupported by research and quite frankly incorrect, so it gets 2 stars only If you choose to use this book, pick and choose carefully and do you own research It would be a pity to select an ineffective methodology because of an old, misinformed text.

    Excellent guide to experiential learning with tips on how to design and implement The thought is to present the material and let the learners learn Also love the idea of putting joy in learning and that a good Accelerated Learning facilitator Cares about their learners and the subject , is Creative always improving to increase learning and has the Courage to try new things.

    A company for whom I was doing some consulting had recently come across this book and was looking at it to reduce the time to develop and implement learning solutions I read this so that I could understand what they liked about the approach and how it could be used.Quite honestly, I thought the book was incredibly elementary Yes, I suppose it could appeal to folks who are just starting out in instructional design But it does reinforce some out of date concepts, such as learning styles whether or not people are visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners Learning styles only mean that the learner themselves prefer to learn a certain way not that they CANNOT learn in any other way The learning styles theory is not one that should be promoted Kirkpatrick s Four Levels of Evaluation are also promoted in this book, which is another old way of doing things I would never do smile sheets Level One again and you can t measure knowledge transfer without defining success first and ensuring that the learning is not left to chance once the learner leaves the classroom It takes a good six nine months before true evaluation can take place I also fight against Level Two evaluations life is not a multiple choice test I will agree that the best learning knowledge transfer occurs when all senses are engaged I agree that people learn best when they are actively engaged whole body if possible The pervasive standard of butts in chairs that extends from grade school through corporate training programs has been debunked over and over and yet no one is willing to make a change Outdated and irrelevant Angela Risner 2014 Unauthorized use and or duplication of this material without express and written permission from Goodreads or Angela Risner is strictly prohibited Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to Angela Risner with appropriate and specific direction to the original content.
