Tracks: Micro & Workflow Learning
Microlearning seems like a simple concept to incorporate into the organization’s learning ecosystem, but oftentimes it fails. Challenges range from lack of equal comprehension of what microlearning is and can do to the skills of the L&D team not aligning, as well as how microlearning campaigns are created and products designed. These are critical considerations, especially if your organization is interested in leveraging microlearning for performance-based initiatives. When developing microlearning with a performance purpose, more upfront time is needed for considering the whole of the solution with respect to evaluation and implementation. Of course, this is what can make it challenging to integrate. However, much like microlearning, you don’t have to pepper performance throughout the organization in a big way. It can start out micro, too! This session will focus on providing perspective on this methodology and contextualizing the possibilities of its use for your organization.
In this session you will learn:
- To discern characteristics of microlearning
- How to recognize challenges to incorporating microlearning
- To determine skills necessary for creating microlearning
- How to identify opportunities for incorporating microlearning
