Purpose and aim of unit
This purpose of this unit is to further develop the learners’ knowledge and understanding of how to maximise participant engagement throughout the learning process. Classical and contemporary theories and models from psychology will be explored and their usefulness for learning and development (L&D) practice will be assessed. In particular, the unit will examine the neuroscience and psychology of motivation, learning and change and how these can be used to inform practice. The unit will develop the learners’ ability to plan, manage and deliver learning that meets the needs of learners and stakeholders, underpinned by relevant psychological theories and research. The concept of a ‘holistic learning journey’ will be explored along with the implications for L&D practice.
This unit is suitable for persons who:
- are working in or are seeking to develop a career in L&D.
- aim to further their understanding of the science of participant engagement with reference to psychological theories and models.
- aim to further their expertise in enhancing participant engagement in the learning process.
On successful completion of this unit, learners will:
- Be able to use stakeholder analysis to inform their learning activities.
- Understand motivation theory as it relates to the learning process.
- Be able to use neuroscience and psychology to enhance engagement throughout the learning process.
To achieve this unit, the evidence the learner presents for assessment must demonstrate that they have met all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria.
The learner will:
The learner can:
|1 Be able to use stakeholder analysis to inform their learning activities

1.2 Assess different stakeholders’ power, positions and interests.
|2 Understand motivation theory as it relates to the learning process||2.1 Critically assess a number of motivation theories.
2.2 Demonstrate how motivation theory can be used to build and maintain learner engagement.
|3 Be able to use neuroscience and psychology to enhance engagement throughout the learning process
|3.1 Outline the neuroscience most pertinent to learner engagement.
3.2 Explain the individual and group psychology most pertinent to learner engagement.
