"Learning," Vicki Halsey writes, "is the gateway to optimal life experiences. Learning transforms people's lives and teaching, in any form, is the art and science of bringing out the brilliance that drives those transformations."

Or it should be. But what often happens is that people who teach -- in classrooms, meetings, workshops, coaching sessions, any setting where learning happens -- don't know how to transfer their great content to others effectively. They spend 70% of their time on what they are teaching and only 30% on how, when it should be the other way around.

Halsey is here to reverse that equation, laying out a comprehensive instructional design model that deeply engages and energizes learners because it keeps them front and center every step of the way. She offers a bevy of tips and techniques for developing a learner-centered mindset -- focusing not on how smart learners are, but how they are smart. Building on this foundation she shows how to create content that is clear, relevant, easily absorbed, and readily retained because it is tailored to each audience's specific needs, abilities, and inclinations.

But content, however expertly designed, doesn't teach itself. Halsey's six-step ENGAGE model makes the old "sit and git" learning model obsolete and radically democratizes the teaching process. She presents hundreds of proven ideas, strategies, and practices that will enable you to Energize learners at the beginning of any learning session; help them Navigate the new content and Generate personal meaning and relevance from it; Apply their learning to the real world; Gauge and celebrate their progress; and Extend their learning to action. Brilliance by Design offers a systematic way to reach joyfully into the soul of learners and facilitate their brilliance so they can make their contributions and realize their potential.
