Lecturing on its own is ineffective. But what’s the alternative? Combine the best of brain science and learning theory with the power of choice. This webcast offers an overview of the Cafeteria Learning style as presented in Let Them Choose. Get participants out of their seats and into station-based activities catered to distinct learning preferences, interaction types, and technology options. Part experiential, part social, and part emotional, Cafeteria Learning encourages learners to explore and absorb content at their own speed and direction. It puts learners in the best position to succeed. Join Jillian Douglas and Shannon McKenzie, authors of Let Them Choose, published by ATD Press as they introduce you to Cafeteria Learning.

• Differentiate Cafeteria Learning from other ILT methodologies.
• Identify the research in support of Cafeteria Learning.
