Do you ever challenge the “facts”?

Are you interested in the subject matter your clients give you, or just the “training” side of it?

I absolutely LOVE the fact that I get to learn every day, however…how often do we challenge what we see…how often do you check up on “facts”.

Here’s something I learned the other day that I found wonderful.

As Instructional Designers, we need to know a bit about colour, OK – I agree with that.

What are the 3 Primary colours – the 3 colours which you cannot make, and which you mix to make all other colours?

Easy – red, blue and yellow…the ones that look like “children’s” versions of the colours.

Wrong.

If that is the case – why are coloured printer cartridges cyan, magenta and yellow?

Now, it’s true to say that I have no idea how to make those 3 colours, however, apparently this is something that’s been known for hundreds of years, but it’s just never made it into the school books yet. It’s all a bit of a pain as I have just written an entire book chapter about colour (!) that now needs to be amended.
