Microlearning is an extremely popular topic right now within the learning and performance field. While practitioners and stakeholders alike say they want it, the industry has not yet really defined "microlearning." Without a consistent understanding of the concept and tactics, L&D risks turning microlearning into another short-lived trend that fails to help us better support people and organizations.
This session tries to demystify microlearning by clearly defining it in three words: learning that fits. We explain why microlearning is actually an "informed reimagination" of familiar L&D tactics. We show how to design learning solutions that "fit" within the modern workplace. We discuss the importance of technology in a microlearning strategy, especially for distributed organizations. Participants leave armed with the principles needed to start applying microlearning in their everyday work.
