Comparing Successful Learning via Learning Formats

This chart is meant to help you to think about the level of success you want for your learners. You want learners to experience successful learning. Consider the learning format and determine how it can lend itself to maximum learning retention.
For example, conference presenters:

  • may just lecture, so could expect 20% retention
  • could add PowerPoint, so retention could go to 30%
  • could include audience participation, so retention could go to 50%
  • could share information with the audience and then ask them to process the information and respond, so retention could go to 70%
