Accelerated learning is an advanced learning approach that is used in many organizations today, including learning institutions and corporate entities. It is research-based, and includes a variety of media and techniques. As opposed to the traditional laid-back learning approaches where the student assumes a passive role and the trainer actively pushes knowledge his way, accelerated learning is more flexible and open. It ensures that every learner is totally involved. It brings in energy and re-humanizes the learning process making it more enjoyable and productive.
Accelerated learning methods vary greatly with respect to the structure of the organization, the subject matter in question, and the learners. In the words of Jacques Barzun, "Teaching is not application of a system but rather an exercise in perpetual discretion." The main aim of a learning process is not the method used but rather the results that it gives. Accelerated learning scores highly in this regard. Hundreds of organizations all over the world have embraced accelerated learning, and the number of those that are joining in is rising by day. This is because people have discovered that accelerated learning uses proven techniques that enable them to design programs faster, improve measurable learning, and enhance the productivity and creativity of employees. In order to be successful in accelerated learning, you need both a skeptical approach and an open mind.
Healthy skepticism will enable you to rethink your assumptions to learning and at the same time enable you to maintain a balanced head even as you crunch the dazzling techniques and methods in the accelerated learning process. Openness, on the other hand, will help you to appreciate that learning is a continual process - and no one has seen it all. New possibilities are always knocking at your door, and it is up to you to respond with an open mind.
