Accelerated Learning

An introduction to Accelerated Learning

Many of today's leading organisations and educational institutions are benefiting from the power of Accelerated Learning. By using the principles of Accelerated Learning, recall can be increased by up to 50% because individuals are more actively involved in the learning process.

Accelerated Learning is the most advanced learning method in use today. It is a total system for speeding and enhancing both the design and learning process. Based on the latest brain research, it has proven again and again to increase learning effectiveness while saving time and money.

Why Accelerated Learning is effective?

What makes Accelerated Learning so effective is that it is based on the way we all naturally learn. It unlocks much of the potential for Learning that has been left largely untapped by most conventional learning methods. It does this by actively involving the whole person, using physical activity, creativity, music, images, colour and other methods designed to get people deeply involved in their own learning.

The key underlying principles of Accelerated Learning are:

  • Learning involves whole body and whole mind . . . and all the senses
  • Learningis creation and not consumption
  • Collaborationaids Learning, competition slows learning
  • Learningtakes place at many levels simultaneously
  • Learningcomes from doing the work itself (with feedback) and people learn best in context
  • Positiveemotions greatly improve learning

The benefits of Accelerated Learning

Unlike many traditional learning methods which focus much more on presentation, Accelerated Learning places emphasis on preparing the learner, providing opportunity for practice and performance. It recognises that for effective learning to take place the focus should be on the learner and not the deliverer.

Individuals need a positive physical, emotional and social environment, their curiosity needs to be aroused and they need opportunity to practice in a safe environment so that their on the job performance is enhanced. Accelerated Learning places emphasis on winning over hearts and minds.

Research suggests that an Accelerated Learning process can:

  • Improve retention and job performance
  • Speed up the design process
  • Ignite creativity and imagination
  • Build effective learning environments
