Debunking learning myths

In this episode of the Learning Curve, Kenny dives deep into the world of myths – learning myths. Thanks to the extraordinary insights of his fascinating guest, Dr Kuva Jacobs, Kenny busts and disproves popular myths about learning live on the podcast.   


Just because certain, attractive ideas about how people learn are widely shared and propagated, that doesn't mean they're entirely accurate. When it comes to common learning theories, such as The Learning Pyramid and different learning styles, Kuva shows Kenny from a researched and analytical point of view see that there is perhaps more to the story.   


Taking learning myths literally can be damaging because they don't give us the complete picture even if they do contain a valid message. This episode of the podcast is essential listening for L&D managers, learning experts, and enterprise learning professionals.
