Many professionals suffer misconceptions about which training methods work and which do not. Instructional design expert Ruth Colvin Clark explodes the myths regarding training. To replace the practices she discredits, Clark gives instructors numerous research-based recommendations. Learning professionals turn to Clark for their own development, an accolade from her peers that encourages getAbstract to recommend her heavily researched insights to teachers, training materials developers, e-learning professionals and training managers.
