Revert to Default: Subject Matter Experts in Workplace Classrooms Attempt to Embrace ChangingMethodologiesRichey, M, O'Mahony, T. K.In this study, we explore a particular learning sciences conundrum that seeks to explain how manymodern industry training methods are stuck—entrenched in learning models, which predate thecognitive revolution that disrupted traditional classroom learning in the latter half of the twentiethcentury. We describe changes that have shaped learning in informal and formal classrooms over thepast number of years where a tangible movement towards learning sciences has in some instances beensuccessful at displacing the traditional educational mold, but in others has not been so successful. Weintroduce the idea that it is easier to revert to default when neither time nor substantive effort isexpended to really understand what it means to apply “Learning Sciences” or “How People Learn”techniques to workplace training.
