The Pillars



A firm foundation is needed for anything built to last! Accelerated Learning is built on seven pillars to ensure a sturdy design for transformational learning that leads to consistent results.

  • An Interaction-Rich Learning Environment
    Learners interact with one another, with the facilitator, and with the content and materials in ways that support learning. The physical environment invites movement, interaction and offers optimal flexibility in approaches.
  • Playful Discovery and Experimentation
    Learners play with concepts and ideas, experiment with new ways of acting, test assumptions, pose questions and present ideas back to the group. The discovery process creates autonomous learners and critical thinkers.
  • The Arts
    Music, storytelling, improv/theater activities, collages, gallery walks and many other art forms make learning a holistic, engaging process.
  • State Management
    The physical, mental and psychological/emotional state of the learner is taken into consideration and activities are designed to help maintain the ideal state for learning.
  • Suggestion / De-suggestion
    Every person comes to a learning program with their own cognitive belief systems. In Accelerated Learning, learners participate in activities in ways that help them expand their thinking and tap into their potential.
  • Reflective Practice
    Reflection on what can be in terms of visualization, what is happening in the moment and what it means through brief “time-outs”, as well as reflection after action on what happened support and deepen learning and shared cognition.
  • The Facilitator Role
    Since the facilitator acts as a filter through which learners experience the world of learning, the role/s of the facilitator play a key role in what happens. Mindfulness, intentionality, presence and humility are a few of the key qualities an AL facilitator needs to succeed.
