This eBook, “Microlearning In Action – Tips, Techniques, And Examples On How To Use It To Drive Employee Performance,” provides insights on how you can leverage microlearning to enhance the impact of your corporate training.
Microlearning based training has become an important strategy for L&D teams. However, there is more to it than its ability to address the challenge of dwindling attention spans.
My free eBook, Microlearning in Action – Tips, Techniques, and Examples on How to Use It to Drive Employee Performance, is designed to help you understand its strengths and how you can use it to offset several challenges that L&D teams face today. I provide pointers on how you can use it (for both formal and informal learning) to drive employee performance.
How Will the eBook Help You?
There are three crucial elements that trainings must have so that you can achieve employee engagement and performance gain. These are:
- Training must be sharp, focused, and aligned to a specific need.
- It must be easy to understand and internalize.
- It must be packaged in a way that it can be easily applied on the job.
Microlearning based trainings provide a highly effective approach to help you meet all these three goals. These trainings will clearly demonstrate better learner engagement and will drive higher performance.
While the primary trigger for the adoption of Microlearning was the need to meet the challenge of diminishing attention spans, this is not the only factor in its favor. Microlearning provides value to both learners and businesses.
- Learners love it, as they want training that is short and focused; it helps them achieve a specific gain, and it can be consumed “on the go.” It also enables them to block short periods of time every day and achieve a specific learning outcome. They can use Microlearning based nuggets to learn, practice, and acquire new skills without having to block large chunks of time.
- L&D teams find value in Microlearning to enhance employee performance because it resonates better with their learners, leading to better completion rates and each learning byte can help them achieve a specific outcome.
