Awaited Second Edition Released!
second edition of Telling Ain't Training hit bookstores and
Amazon.com in May and has been selling like wildfire! After 10 years,
we updated, expanded and enhanced our best-selling book to give
readers a fresh look at what works and what doesn't in the world
of training and learning.
We launched the book at the ASTD International Conference in Orlando
on May 22, and Harold was on hand to sign copies and lead a well-attended
Ain't Training - Updated, Expanded and Enhanced deliberately
avoids the one-way communication of "telling" trainers
how to be more effective. Instead, it uses an interactive approach
which models the basic message of the book - that is, humans learn
best through active mental engagement. We expect the reader to "do"
something, not just read! Despite its fun and breezy tone, every
concept in the book is solidly backed up by research and includes
an extensive list of references and endnotes to guide readers wishing
to dig more deeply into individual topics of interest. This second
edition adds a new section that addresses technology and learning
conceptually and provides rich examples and pragmatic considerations.
The ultimate goal of the book is to offer the reader an opportunity
to break through learning barriers, to separate learning myth from
research-based findings, and to dispel counterproductive beliefs
and practices that harm the instructional process.

Learning Systems Models - Part V
By Harold D. Stolovitch
and Erica J. Keeps
In this series of articles, we address whole learning systems,
some of which are rarely used although they have demonstrated
effectiveness. We're not certain why some beneficial systems
aren't used more frequently, but our experience tells us that
many people in the learning and performance world either don't
know about them, don't know how to develop and implement them,
or simply are fearful of rocking the boat.
We continue to address these learning systems (natural experience,
experimental learning, structured on-the-job training [SOJT],
learner-controlled instruction [LCI] and individual developmental
plans) which have stood the test of time and have demonstrated
effectiveness in this edition of the HSA e-Xpress. For each
of these learning systems models, we have created an information
chart that can familiarize you with them and help you try
them out. In the April 2011 edition of the HSA e-Xpress, we
presented learner-controlled instruction (click HERE

training learning (click HERE

to read it). In this edition, we offer individual development
