Today’s guest is Peter Brown, co-author of a book that has really resonated with learning practitioners. Make it Stick was written with one purpose to mind: to find out how we can make learning easier and learnings durable.


Make it Stick draws on recent breakthroughs in cognitive psychology and explains how knowledge transferred in training is encoded, accessed and retrieved in the minds of learners.
