This week’s GoodPractice podcast discusses the concept of ‘micro learning’. Micro learning emerged as a hot topic for 2016 in Donald Taylor’s L&D Global Sentiment Survey.
So what is micro learning? Is it the latest ‘thing’ in L&D we should be embracing, or is it as old as the hills and simply relabelling of what we already know? (Think bite-size learning, small bites learning, tool kits to name a few) Whether same old or revolutionary, what sits behind the term and what does it mean in practical terms?
Listen here to the podcast.
Regardless of the terminology this is a great listen to reflect and refocus on the way in which we package our learning. How do people learn best and how do people WANT to learn? Is repetition the key to more effective learning? In a dynamic fast moving world, it follows that short, sharp engagement in learning activity has a place, after all who wants to read the whole ‘book’ when the same learning can be achieved in a single concise ‘chapter’?

- Are there opportunities for this type of learning in your organisation? If yes, what does it look like? If not, what could it look like?
