 Designing engaging and effective learning is both an art and a science: through ten years as eLearning Director of a global training business, Julian has designed and delivered hundreds of learning solutions and, through research and experience, created a six step Learning Methodology.A Methodology is not a process: it's more about a mindset, exploring how we set the CONTEXT for learning, how we DEMONSTRATE key principles and provide space for EXPLORATION, to play with the learning. We need to create spaces for REFLECTION and tools for ASSESSMENT, as well as provide FOOTSTEPS for ongoing performance support.

At each of the six stages, Julian explores the key points of what we should and shouldn't do, as well as asking questions that we can use to shape and structure the learning design.

A strong learning methodology does not constrain what we do: it liberates us to create challenging and effective learning solutions that deliver a solid return on investment.

He loved the opportunities to work with stories, to meet people, and to walk with them along a learning journey.

Julian is grounded in understanding how people learn, whatever the technology, and what the barriers are that can prevent them from learning.

Today, he writes widely in his learning blog around various aspects of learning: mainly e-learning, social learning and learning technology. Asked recently what the most important skill was for an aspiring e-learning specialist, Julian's answer was ‘storytelling’. At heart, everything revolves around the clarity and coherence of the narrative.

Kahneman's work with Amos Tversky is the subject of Michael Lewis's The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds

In the international bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions.

Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.
