That Chart!

Posted on March 14, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Every educator has seen this chart (in one form or another – a list, a pyramid, etc.). But when I need it, I can never seem to find it quickly. My solution? Put it in this blog – and I will always know where to find it!

Learning Mode/ % Retained

Lecture: 5%

Multimedia: 20%

Demonstration: 30%

Discussion: 50%

Doing: 75%

Teach it to Someone Else: 90%

(Hmm, I am sure I have led faculty development sessions during my career using this chart – so if teaching it to someone else leads to a 90% retention rate, I guess when it comes to these statistics, I am in the 10%).
