Accelerated Learning and What It's All About
In an accelerated learning classroom, course content is delivered in approximately 50% of the time required to deliver in a traditional classroom. This is accomplished by addressing the various learning styles; visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (V.A.K.) and applying unique and creative instruction techniques that speak to these learning styles. When introducing new information for example, the instructor might have students participate in role playing (kinesthetic), watch a video (visual) or participate in a dramatic reading (auditory) rather than a simple reading assignment with a brief question and answer session. Using these approaches can enhance a student's rate of acquiring and retaining information because it taps their strongest learning style. When participants are actively involved, both mentally and even physically, learning happens quickly!
The aim of an accelerated format is to connect course work to real-world workplace applications. It is essential that students be willing to dedicate considerable time outside the classroom to reading, writing, research, presentations and projects.
