Learning Pyramid Structure

  • Author: OSF


Learning Pyramid was created by the National Training Laboratories in Maine (USA) based on Edgar Dale's research and Cone of Learning and after additional studies were performed. It illustrates the average retention rate for different teaching methods used by the instructor. The least effective method of instruction given is shown to be for "lectures" with a retention rate of 5%. This finding alone is alarming because of "the lecture" being the most common teaching method in today's colleges.
