What the heck is it – and 20 ways to use it!

(Virtual Event)

Join us for our first chapter event of the new year!

In this virtual session, you’ll identify how to go micro with the greatest impact in your organization. First we’ll look at what microlearning is … and what it is not. Then we’ll share 4 primary use cases for microlearning and look at examples of these different types of microlearning used successfully in organizations today. Then you will consider how you can use these types of microlearning in your own curriculum.

Then we’ll get tactical! We’ll identify 20 ways to go micro and you will identify which of these 20 ways would work best in your curriculum so you can walk away with specific ideas for how you can capitalize on microlearning – in real and tangible ways – in your own work. You will leave this session with fresh ideas for incorporating microlearning successfully in your curriculum!
