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.

At the end of the webinar, participants will be:

  • See the use of agile techniques in non-software development
  • Able to understand the methodology
  • Able to apply the methodology to shorten teaching cycles and maximize learning
