Tracks: Micro & Workflow Learning
In a world where we can access information simply by saying, “Hey Alexa,” our learners are getting more and more comfortable with getting information when and where they need it. If they are in the kitchen cooking and need to convert ounces to grams, they are most likely not going to rely on the knowledge from a fifth grade math class. Similarly, when a new employee submits PTO for their first time, they may just turn to a co-worker instead of recalling their overwhelming onboarding from months ago.
In this panel discussion, join Pamela Hogle as she hosts a conversation with important voices from the learning industry who will share their tips and tricks, successes and failures, and all their thoughts on the approaches of implementing workflow learning.
In this session, you will learn:
- What workflow learning is and is not
- What are the pros and cons of learning in the flow of work
- What could various approaches look like in your organization
- Where to start the conversation about workflow learning
- What technologies are advancing learning in the moment
