Rachel Kapp, M.Ed., BCET, and Stephanie Pitts, M.Ed., BCET, discuss the very specific avoidance tactics learners use when dealing with a large multi-step project. As they discuss, learners will focus on fluff (style and format) over content because it’s the perfect way to say “I’ve started on this!” without actually doing anything meaningful. This is all the impact of executive functioning skill weakness and the overwhelm of a ton of learners in Educational Therapy experience. They discuss why learners focus on the wrong thing and what to do about it.
