408 - Microlearning to the Rescue: Your Guide to a Rapid Framework for Success
We've all been there. New updated processes are being rolled out and all eyes are on you. You're on deck to provide training that not only works, but sticks. The issue? A large training program isn't the answer. Within nearly every fat course there is a microlearning object dying to get out! People have precious moments to spare and training must have relevance to the workday. The use of microlearning can incorporate that relevance while providing key learning reinforcement and performance support to see training success. It's time for microlearning to take its place in the L&D modality lineup.
In this session we’ll move beyond theory and complete a rapid microlearning framework to build your own microlearning lesson and outline. You’ll look at how to use this framework, and problem-solving techniques to determine if microlearning should indeed be a part of your solution. Then, through applying the concept of content deconstruction and reconstruction, you’ll get to the heart of the problem. It’s at this point you’ll determine which type of microlearning asset, based on content and context, to use to support your stated solution and which can be used as learning reinforcement tools. Then you’ll take what you’ve learned and work in pairs to create an actual microlearning strategy for peer review. This will directly teach you how to deconstruct large and complex learning programs into supporting microlearning content and how to create content on the fly that’s relevant and usable. You will leave this session with the foundation for a completed microlearning framework, along with tools and templates to make microlearning creation easier and more impactful to your organization.
In this session, you will learn:
- How identify the traits of effective microlearning content
- How to make a case for microlearning as performance support and learning reinforcement in your organization
- How to create microlearning assets using an easy to use, nine-step content framework
- How to deconstruct macro content into micro-sized learning nuggets
