801 The End of Microlearning
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 26
Microlearning! It’s the most popular word in corporate learning today. It is also the most controversial. While some claim microlearning to be a transformational concept, others see it as nothing but smoke and mirrors. To really find the value, you have to get past the noise and focus on the fundamentals that created the microlearning hype. To really see the benefit of microlearning, you have to end it.
This session will destroy microlearning. All that will be left are the fundamental principles you can apply to enable employees and enhance your impact on the organization. You’ll learn why microlearning is actually an “informed reimagination” of familiar L&D tactics. You’ll find out how to design a workplace learning experience that fits within the daily workflow. You’ll hear stories from organizations that have applied these principles to solve common business problems with measurable results. You’ll leave ready to apply right-fit learning tactics on the job—without using the word “microlearning.”
In this session, you will learn:
- How to articulate the value of microlearning within the modern workplace
- How to build learning solutions that address specific business problems
