SDML: Designing Microlearning

Code: SDML
Length: 1 Day

This workshop will give you the confidence to design and develop microlearning experiences that are right for your organisation.

Delivery format(s)
Microlearning offers flexibility in learning pathways and can help motivate learners for better learner engagement and improved retention. Learning experiences that can be pushed to learners on the job, giving them what they need in the moment to do their jobs better. But how do you make the most of these opportunities? Which tools should you use? How will learners respond? What about assessment? How do they retain what they learn?

This workshop will give you the confidence to design and develop microlearning experiences that are right for your organisation. Experiences that can build upon each other to ensure learning is targeted and hits at the right time to ensure your people can do the job they need to.

Delivered in partnership with Synapsys.
