How Microlearning Helps Create a Training Ecosystem Infographic
In learning and development, the goal of every training initiative should be to improve human performance. So why is it easy to lose sight of the people at the core of your curriculum? Every project is a balancing act. You’re trying to weigh your objectives and learner needs against resources, budget, timeline, and capabilities. But that investment will be largely lost without supporting the people who take your training.
How do you keep the human element intact? One of the ways to help clients make that shift is by using microlearning elements in their curriculums. Many concepts require a lot of information to reach proficiency, but when this information is lumped in a big block of traditional training with no reinforcement you are overwhelming learners, increasing their time to mastery and hurting your performance.
Creating microlearning courses, or including microlearning elements, allows you to break down the behaviors people need to improve to create good performance. Microlearning takes each step necessary to change behavior and creates a self-contained learning nugget, lengthens the delivery timelines and forces you to create more targeted, focused training.
Each piece of microlearning in a curriculum helps you create a learning ecosystem—targeted instruction and reinforcement for the most challenging steps of a behavior and a web of information that supports the behaviors needed for achieving performance results. With short, engaging, memorable, accessible training that gives learners the power to prioritize the information they need, you make learners more confident and more effective.
