Accelerated Learning is a teaching and learning model which is based on the original work from Dr. Georgi Lozanov in the 1960s. (Read more here.) He named this model, Suggestopedia.
Throughout the past decades as we have learned more about learning and brain functions as well as human development, this approach to learning has been continually updated and refined thus including new ideas, techniques, best practice and learning models placing AL on the cutting edge in the world of teaching, training and learning.
It is a method which addresses the needs of all learning styles and modalities; it is motivating, creative, varied, playful, and structured. Consequently, the learning process is accelerated.
In the foreground is the implementation of the newly acquired information and skills into one’s business and/or personal life.
Accelerated Learning provides guidelines to everyone who facilitates learning. These guidelines are like a recipe for a delicious meal with special ingredients and spices. They provide a structure which assists in setting up a rich learning environment; one in which the needs of all learners are met. They support, deepen and accelerate the learning.
Results: learners learn more, apply more to their real world, and retain more. Critical, innovative thinking evolves or increases. They become more effective as participants as well as in their work and in their personal lives.
