    The Science of Boosting Performance, Retention and Engagement

    The concepts of spaced education are based on the original research conducted at Harvard Medical School, punctuated by real-life applications tied to business outcomes.

    What you will learn:

    • The general principals of interval reinforcement and active recall, and the measurable impact they can have on the retention of information in long-term memory and behavior change
    • About the findings of a controlled study at Intuitive Surgical, makers of complex surgical robots, on how mobile reinforcement via spaced education following a live training event can deliver statistically similar outcomes to 1:1 coaching and mentoring; and perhaps one other application case study time permitting 
    • How the introduction of simple game mechanics into spaced education can significantly increase user engagement in learning, and thereby boost satisfaction and results.
    • Discuss methods for tying spaced education approaches to the business results/outcomes.

    Keys to Success

    Sometimes we get so involved with "work" that we may neglect the non-professional aspects of our lives. Certainly, professional development and career advancement are important and deserve attention. Family, physical activity, social interaction, community participation, and fun must also enter into the equation for a successful life. This presentation will delve into balancing the many aspects of daily life while creating a successful career path.
