Session 1 – Microlearning: NOT A Silver Bullet with JD Dillon

Just like every other potential L&D tactic, Microlearning must be effectively implemented as part of a larger learning ecosystem. But what role does microlearning play?

Session 2 – Microlearning for the Workplace with Shannon Tipton
9a PT/Noon ET/5p GMT
The humans in your organization need help now. How are you supporting them? “Microlearning on the GO” gives you the tools to develop a microlearning content plan to address those “just-in-time” learning moments.
Easily defined, microlearning is: Short bursts of focused “right-sized” content to help people achieve a specific outcome. More than just creating micro videos, microlearning is about solving problems that get in the way of employee success. People in the modern workplace require timeliness and relevance. The speed at which one can arrive at the required answer or solution using a performance support tool is key to the microlearning appeal.

Session 4 – Going Beyond Microlearning to Work Results with Ray Jimenez
11a PT/2p ET/7p GMT
Microlearning is about work results. Sadly, many think of Microlearning as content production. To make Microlearning work, we need to stop thinking of learning, but focus on how to help workers fix, solve and improve work issues. Learning is only a consequence, not the goal. Start with work situations, find answers and solutions from others and resources. Help learners to do it, just do it.
