Microlearning is a popular topic in learning right now. Some people swear by it whilst others seem frustrated at the notion of a simplistic approach to learning.

In this episode JD Dillon – a savant on the topic – answers questions from the podcast audience. We discuss what microlearning is, why some observers of microlearning are not so keen on the term and the need for context when applying a microlearning strategy. Most importantly, we discuss how the principles can be applied to day-to-day learning. These can be used in any area of learning!

Episode #010 – Learning That Fits (43 min)
July 10, 2018

When asked to define what microlearning is, every learning practitioner will answer with their own twist. I have to say the best answer to the question “what is microlearning?” came in this conversation – learning that fits. Learning that fits the learner, the job, the task, the organization, the time, the needs…. and when you listen in, you’ll hear great ideas about how to create learning that fits and solves your business problem. Today I’ve made a lovely iced raspberry oolong tea. It’s the perfect refreshing beverage to accompany my chat with JD Dillon.
