Tip #11: Engage as many senses as possible.

The more senses engaged in the learning process, the greater likelihood that new learning will be retained. According to Edgar Dale’s Cone of Experience and Learning, we tend to remember: 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we hear and see, 70% of what we say, and 90% of what we both say and do. That is why it is so important to actively involve participants in learning activities which require them to verbally interact and to physically apply their new learning.
