  • Zoom


  • Please register in advance

Registration is closed

Intended Audience:

  • Instructional Designers
  • Learning Development Managers

Cognitive biases can impact what we design even if we don’t realize it; these biases can also reduce the accessibility of content for learners. David will be discussing how to design around cognitive biases and to possibly use biases to aid in the creation process. After the discussion, we will practice bias identification with some use-case scenarios.

Don’t miss this important and positive presentation!

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify their own implicit cognitive biases

  • Apply techniques to remove personal biases from design work

  • Use biases to improve training content
