Learning Heroes: Unconscious Bias

Visit elearning

Me, biased, never? I’m not a monster! But what if it’s all part of being human – that biases are all lurking inside our brains and have sneaky ways of influencing the decisions we make at work?

Unconscious Bias is a short, bite-sized, animated, off-the-shelf elearning module, that gets us thinking and encourages us to “consciously stop, dig deep and go hunting” for our own biases.

Why we like it

  • Animated videos that get the message of unconscious bias across in an engaging way.
  • Engaging and effective use of color, illustration and typography that helps visualize concepts.
  • A lively, character-rich voice-over, that’s upbeat and engaging (I can’t help thinking it’s Nick Knowles – this is unconfirmed of course).
  • A subtle use of sound effects.
  • Uses rich content to convey key messages e.g. research examples, statistics, and perception exercises.
  • An uncluttered interface helps focus attention on the content.
  • Uses a humorous tone that doesn’t overshadow the subject matter.

How to improve this elearning

  • Currently built in Flash. Creating something similar in HTML5 would mean it could be responsive across different platforms and devices.
  • Including a few more activities that let learners process the information would enhance learner interest and retention.
  • We like the simplicity of this module, but we would probably still add a bit more to the GUI, e.g. a progress indicator and navigation to revisit earlier scenes and allow learners to drive the learning.
