People's attention spans are shrinking, distractions abound, and work schedules are busier. Learners don’t always have time for that two-hour training, and we know that this isn’t always the best learning solution. Why not try providing learners with just-a snack? Microlearning is broken into "bite-sized" or "snack-sized" chunks that allow learners to fit training modules into vacant time slots with minimal disruption to their actual work.


Join us for an open forum discussion lead by Mike Frederick, Senior Instructional Designer at Farmers Insurance as we debunk common myths about Microlearning and answer these questions:

  • What does effective Microlearning consist of?
  • What are the possibilities this technique offers to make learning more effective and powerful?
  • How is this technique being used in workplaces?
  • What are some of the interesting ways your organization is successfully implementing this approach?
  • What are some of the useful resources available on this topic that can benefit us all as learning professionals? 

Registration, Food and Networking 5:30 – 6:00 p.m.

Learning Session is from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
