Increase Knowledge Retention through Agile Techniques

by Helen Uzamere
September 28, 2020 | 61:17 | Views: 1,935 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.44 / 5

Educators are continually searching for techniques to improve knowledge retention, especially during the pandemic. Research shows that poor knowledge retention exists because teaching typically follows a traditional waterfall approach, which studies show to be ineffective. The “learn and forget” style of rote learning should be discouraged. Employers are frustrated as they find themselves retraining new hires on concepts that should have been learned in schools. Employing agile techniques in pedagogical practices increases knowledge retention. Delivering a course in order of importance, with constant stakeholder collaboration, and adapting the delivery based on feedback increases learning and knowledge retention. Also, educators should use a test-driven development approach with continuous planning and frequent feedback to improve learning and satisfaction.

Continuous Integration and Testing

ADVERTISEMENTS

"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars and so on -- whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man -- for precisely the same reasons."
