Given the choice, many learners will choose mobile abstracts over books, YouTube DIY over lecture, single-point lessons over ILT, and JIT mobile reinforcement over day-long training. This is a very real challenge most T&D departments are facing. While they all have legacy training courses that are traditionally a day longer or more, learners today do not enjoy or benefit by these long-form training methodologies.

In this session you will learn about the innate problems with traditional long-form training, as well as the necessary micro-learning skillset to start making improvements. You’ll learn the three elements of transforming your existing training content into engaging bite-sized chunks. The first element is “shock treatment,” where you will learn how bite-sized principles, reinforced by brain science, is the future of learning. The next element is “first aid,” where you will learn how to apply micro-learning principles to your existing ILT courses. The final element is “group massage,” where group discussion will assist you in troubleshooting your traditional training challenges.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Why we need to commit to breaking up our training into smaller pieces
  • From brain science, how bite-sized learning is the future
  • How to apply micro-learning principles to your existing ILT courses and other forms of traditional training
  • How to troubleshoot your traditional training challenges and come up with bite-sized solutions
