    I am using this book as I am rethinking some presentations. I am finding it interesting and love the emphasis on EFFECTIVE learning experinces. It has some sections on design for motivation, design for habits and design for skilss and one for social and informal learning, as well as some good core lessons for all learning.

    Have you read it? Used it? Let me know your thoughts!

    E-LEARNING AND THE SCIENCE OF INSTRUCTION (Clark and Mayer)

    (From Amazon:) The essential e-learning design manual, updated with the latest research, design principles, and examples. "e-Learning and the Science of Instruction" is the ultimate handbook for evidence-based e-learning design.

    There is a lot of great information in this book. It's one of the best books to help an organization define its eLearning strategies.

    In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of Mind by Eric R. Kandel (Norton, 2006)

    A unique and fascinating intertwining of personal memoir and popular science writing from Nobel Laureate Kandel.

    Memory=learning, learning=memory. I’m a practical sort, and the connections between the abstraction of learning and the neurochemistry of the brain that formed Kandel’s life’s work were a revelation to me.

    FROM NANCY CURTIS

    Efficiency in Learning: Evidence-Based Guidelines to Manage Cognitive Load by Ruth Colvin Clark et al. (Pfieffer, 2005)

    Connects models of human consciousness, perception, attention, and learning with evidence-based recommendations for how to maximize results from learning design and delivery.

    Our instructional model is largely derived from Clarkian principles, so I have read most of her works. This is the one that resonates the most with me in terms of the research and evidence lining up with my subjective experience as an individual learner. It provides great arguments and justifications for focusing on the essential elements of instruction and not wasting resources on ineffective strategies. And I found it to be a fascinating read.
