Join us for a Learning & Development CoP Social Learning Event that is all about forging new connections based on opportunities to help one another.

Microlearning is one of the least understood trends in workplace training today. Everyone wants to “go micro” and every vendor says their solution includes microlearning.

However, 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.

In this session, you will identify how to go micro with the greatest impact in your curriculum. First we’ll share 4 primary use cases for microlearning and consider how you can use them in your own curriculum. Then we’ll share some tips for doing each type of microlearning most effectively and you will consider how that will apply to your work. You will leave this session with fresh ideas for incorporating microlearning into your curriculum and practical tips for how to make those ideas a reality!

In this session you will learn:

  • Four use cases for microlearning
  • Best practices for developing each of these four kinds of microlearning
  • How to use microlearning to make the greatest impact on your curriculum
Note: Web recordings of ATD Greater Atlanta events are a members-only benefit.
