In the world of fast-paced information and ever-evolving technology, the concept of microlearning has been a buzzword for quite some time in the learning and development (L&D) industry, but is it really all it’s cracked up to be? For one, there is a lack of consensus on the definition of microlearning. While the obvious interpretation is a small bit of learning, there is still ambiguity surrounding the term which can lead to confusion between vendors and consumers, and the design requirements can differ depending on the interpretation.
In our new position paper on Microlearning, authored by our Chief Learning Strategist – Clark Quinn, we explore the nuances of microlearning, its different interpretations, benefits, and areas of concern. The paper argues that the underlying ideas that lead to the value of microlearning are worthy of attention, but the nuances are important. If you’re interested in learning more about microlearning and its potential benefits and drawbacks, we highly recommend reading Clark Quinn’s Microlearning Position Paper.
