801 What TikTok Can Teach Us about Learning and Development

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, December 8

Even with the explosion of conversation in recent years over microlearning, we still find ourselves creating learning modules that can be anywhere from 30-60 minutes long, that learners quickly forget. What if we were able to create bite-sized videos that felt approachable that learners could watch before walking into the classroom, so classroom time could instead be spent applying the knowledge, answering questions, working as a group, etc.? What if we encouraged our learners to be the stars of the learning? Will the organization begin to see more learners applying the skills through “social learning” and through TikTok-type videos provided by those who are out there, “boots on the ground,” applying the skill(s) day in and day out? In this session we will dissect TikTok videos to uncover their secret sauce and how we can leverage it in corporate learning solutions.
