Thanks for coming to the talk!
Evidence-Based Management Links
- If you want to learn more about evidence-based decision-making in business, consider joining the Center for Evidence-Based Management. At the very least, you can check out all their free resources.
- Here’s another brief overview of evidence-based management from ScienceForWork.
These are the writers I trust to “translate” the academic research for practitioners.
- Ruth Colvin Clark: My “go to.” If I have a question and haven’t looked at any of the evidence yet, I first check to see if Clark has written anything about it.
- The Learning Scientists: Tons of good stuff on this website! Focused more on academic than workplace, but most of the research applies. Some of the authors also wrote Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning, which I recommend.
- Clark Quinn: His blog isn’t focused on sharing or summarizing evidence, but he often does to support his arguments. (Read with your critical thinking glasses on to separate the evidence from the opinions.) Also check out his book, Learning Science for Instructional Designers.
- Julie Dirksen: I highly recommend Design for How People Learn. Her blog is good, too, but rarely updated.
Here’s a template for starting your own Learning Design Guidelines (LDG) resource. I am 100% certain that it can (and should) be improved.
Tip: Backup your LDG on a personal computer or cloud account frequently so you can take it with you from employer-to-employer.
