A.G.E.S. Model: The Neuroscience Behind Effective eLearning

One of the key challenges for learning professionals isn’t necessarily that they don’t know how to create effective learning programs. Most understand exactly how to create a level of challenge and engagement that reaches the development goals of their organizations. Instead, it’s often the restraints on time and resources that they must work within that trips them up.

There’s a key element of neuroscience that can be leveraged to create training programs that fully engage learners and improve performance while simultaneously fitting within the reality of corporate restraints though. It’s called A.G.E.S.

A.G.E.S. stands for attention, generation, emotions, and spacing. Research shows that learning retention and recall is linked to the the strength of activation of the learner’s hippocampus (a specific part of the brain). The more your program can activate it, the more your retention rates will improve. Each of the four parts of the A.G.E.S. model plays a key role in doing just that.
