We’re in the midst of a learning crisis. Rapid technological change has led to a skills half-life of just 2.5 years, according to Deloitte. At the same time, the way people consume information, and thus how they learn, has changed as well. Attention is a diminishing resource in the digital age.
To defeat these twin challenges, we learning professionals must lead a revolution. Our secret weapon? Microlearning.
Through case studies, anecdotes, step-by-step instructions, and group discussions, you will learn:
• what microlearning is, and the science behind its effectiveness
• how to quickly create engaging microlearning that covers everything a learner needs to know
• how organizations of various sizes are putting microlearning into practice
• how to ensure that microlearning is addressing skills gaps in your organization, and driving your development and performance goals.
