In this session, you’ll identify how to go micro with the greatest impact in your organization. First we’ll define microlearning. Then we’ll share four primary use cases for microlearning and you’ll consider how you can use these types of microlearning in your own curriculum.

Then we’ll get tactical! We’ll identify 20 ways you can go micro, share five specific design tips for awesome microlearning, and look at real examples of microlearning used successfully in
organizations today. Along the way you will apply these ideas to 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 organization!
