Workshop: Designing for Attention and Engagement

Use the science of attention and engagement to help learners get and stay engaged.

All of our learners today have so many things demanding their attention, it can be difficult to break through the noise and get their focused attention for a learning experience. There are also a lot of myths about our human attention span that make it difficult to design effective learning experiences.

In this workshop we look at the science of attention and engagement, and how to create learning that helps learners get and stay engaged. We debunk some of the myths around attention, and look at the modern realities of operating in our attention-besieged environments, both in person and virtual.
