Instructional Design for Microlearning

  • Peter Sandford, NXLevel Solutions

Microlearning is more than short modules and videos. Instructional strategies that work for traditional eLearning must be reimagined for microlearning. For microlearning to be effective, instructional designers and developers must create learning strategies that incorporate cognitive science principles about how people actually learn. This interactive Learning Lab will present the “why,” the “what,” and the “how” of creating and delivering microlearning that has real-world impact. Key microlearning strategies and instructional design steps will be demonstrated and reinforced. Attendees will be provided a handout that can be used as a guide when creating their own microlearning plan and assets.
