About this Accelerated Learning, Memory & Mental Mapping Training Course

Accelerated learning is a special way of learning and teaching that allows you to both:

  • Memorise and recall, more information, more easily.
  • Teach information to other people, in a manner that they will better understand, remember and use it.

You will learn how to do this, by learning two major skills:

  1. Memory skills using creative imagination and association: sometimes known as Mnemonics.
  2. Mental Mapping skills: which is about organising information into a proper structure.

Remember that a well-structured message is more easily memorised than the same information presented in a disorganised manner.

This course is based upon five accelerated learning principles:

  • Repetition
  • Association
  • Imagination
  • Structure
  • Engagement

You will benefit from this course if you want to...

  • be able to learn large amounts of information.
  • remember people’s names.
  • speak to groups without referring to written notes.
  • remember whatever you read.
  • better express your ideas in a more structured form.
  • develop your creative imagination.
  • know how to use Mental Mapping, both on paper and on computer.
  • gain confidence as both a learner and as a teacher.

If any, or all, of these statements apply to you: then you would benefit from attending the course.

The training course provided valuable information and relevant to our working environment. Very useful indeed. The trainer's presentation was very clear and will explained. Top marks!

Accelerated Learning, Memory & Mental Mapping Training Course Content

Accelerated Learning, Memory & Mental Mapping Training - Day One - AM

Introductions

Green Tree

This course is split into two halves:

AM: The morning is about tools to improve your Memory (mnemonics).
PM: The afternoon is about Mental Mapping.


Accelerated Learning- AM

Memory = Mnemonics

A Key distinction
There are three levels of learning:

  1. Understanding
  2. Memory
  3. Utilisation

Our model for memory: R.A.I.S.E.

  • R – Repetition
  • A - Association
  • I - Imagination
  • S - Structure
  • E - Engagement

1. Repetition

Repetition is the mother of skill –
For many, information goes 'in one ear and out the other'.
We need it to stick in the mind.

It is important to understand how repetition should be used to aid memory retention.
Rules for repetition.

2. Association

Memory can be seen as: The art of associating what you NEED to know, to what you ALREADY know.
Memory uses the associative power of the mind to make links between what you need to remember and what you already know.
Exercises: games and exercises where you learn by doing.

3. Imagination

Your imagination is the motor of your memory.
You use your imagination to create vivid links.
Four types of image-association:

  • Visual images
  • Words, slogans and catch phrases
  • Physical movements and actions
  • And other Anchors; scent, smells and emotions

The art of using your imagination as the GLUE which permanently bonds the information to your brain.

"Thanks Chris, you changed my life!" Honestly, I thought I knew most of it already, but I've learned a lot more. The trainer's presentation was very good, good communication (physical and verbal) and always looking at everyone which is important!

Media for mental mapping:

5. Engagement

Your training sessions need to be engaging.

Question: How could you make your learning sessions more engaging?
There are many ways you may make the learning session engaging:

  1. Get people talking to each other.
  2. Give them puzzles to solve.
  3. Ask them to make distinctions between two similar, but different, concepts.
  4. Ask them to draw something.
  5. Give them a physical challenge or activity to do.
  6. Test their recall in a mini quiz.
  7. Use movement. Throw a ball around a room and ask a question of the catcher.
  8. Perhaps use some music or rhythm or rhyme.

Exercise: Please work with your partner to figure out ways in which you can make your learning sessions engaging.

Summary and action planning.

Summary: R.A.I.S.E.

“How can you get the very best performance from yourself and others?”

  1. I will use repetition in my training by...
  2. I will use association and imagination in my training by...
  3. I will structure my training by...
  4. I will make my training sessions more engaging by...

The course contained a good balance between theory and practical exercises. Content could be applied to all of us in the group, despite differences in working backgrounds. I found the conflict management and use of language sections of the course particularly useful. The trainer's presentation was excellent. I'll certainly take away points that I'll implement in work.

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!
