202 BYOD: Mastering Microlearning: Crafting a Plan for Impactful Implementation

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Wednesday, April 12

Tracks: Micro & Workflow Learning

Microlearning is one of the least understood trends in our industry. There are many different use cases and formats for microlearning so everyone says they’re using microlearning, but they are all doing something vastly different. This creates a tremendous challenge for us to identify best design practices, delivery approaches, and implementation methods. When we actually understand how we are going micro, we have a far greater chance of doing it successfully. This also allows us to share targeted best practices and consider examples of these different approaches to provide inspiration for our work.

In this session you will create a plan for going micro with the greatest impact in your programs. You will work with your own content while being guided through an activity where you 1) determine your best topic to address with microlearning, 2) figure out what kind of microlearning you will create for that topic, 3) identify the most appropriate modality or modalities for your microlearning, and 4) break your content into bite-sized pieces to be able to create the needed microlearning assets.

By the end of the session you will have a plan that you can share with stakeholders to get their buy-in to develop the microlearning program. You will have everything you need to be able to start developing your microlearning assets and roll out your microlearning right away!
