About the webinar

Research shows that people remember events better when they have an emotion involved, as opposed to dry facts. Join us as Allie shares some of the recent cognitive studies as well as practical ways you can incorporate storytelling and emotive analytics trends to improve your instructional material. We will be recording the webinar, so feel free to enjoy the presentation knowing that you can see the recording at a later date.
