Today’s workers and learners strive to learn by themselves because of the immediate need to solve problems and make needed change. They find the answers and solutions themselves without waiting for formal training programs. This is a great opportunity for those who are in the training and learning professions. The challenge, however is how to start and make changes to accelerate learning in micro ways and stop just pushing content production.

The time is ripe to help the new worker. Rapid business change, popularity of mobile devices, availability of apps and advances or shifts in technology are creating favorable environments for Microlearning.

Learning in the workflow integrates training, learning, performance, support, coaching and knowledge streaming to help learners access, apply, store and retrieve information while doing work. It also helps them learn faster and attain immediate results at lesser cost.

Rapid business change presents learning designers and developers with both challenges and opportunities. The ever-shifting technological landscape pressures companies to respond with organizational changes. They are constantly faced with challenges such as:

  • Gaining first-to-market advantage
  • Preventing product obsolescence
  • Coping with constant changes in policies, prices and customer needs
  • Supporting agile product design, development and distribution
  • Adhering to new compliance standards

Microlearning enables learning stakeholders to meet these changes head on. In particular, it helps:

  • Disrupt results with faster, better, less costly learning
  • Facilitate learning while in the workflow and as needed
  • Develop and implement compliance programs by trickles, snippets and spaced-out delivery
  • Embed tips, checklists, solutions in software, processes and other guides
  • Aid learning in very fluid business environments
  • Enable real-time collaboration between engineers, operations, administration, marketing, customer support, and learning and development departments
  • Deliver Microlearning in layers of learning and performance systems

The Microlearning for Disruptive Results - An Action-Driven Online Workshop will cover the following topics:

Shifting Needs

  • Understand the new learner type, “The Seekers”—“get-it-now,” “do-it-now” and “must-learn-it-now” workers and learners

The Microlearning for Disruptive Results - An Action-Driven Online Workshop is a novel approach in blended learning. Instead of an instruction- or teaching-oriented method, the workshop is focused on “doing and application.” It provides experience, skill development and real-life application of Microlearning. At the end of the workshop, participants would have experienced Microlearning implementation, not just its theory.

Key Elements of the Workshop Method

  • The workshop topics are spread out over three sessions.
  • Participants will access a secure website for all workshop activities.
  • For each session, participants will study Microlearning subjects—an average of about 5 subjects ranging from 5 to 7 minutes each.
  • There are a total of 20 subjects.
  • Each subject contains all must-do and must-learn on the topic. Knowledge bases are provided for mastery and further detailed study before, during and up to six months after the workshop.
  • Each Microlearning subject contains micro-lessons, activities, mini-projects, references and tips.
  • Participants can do self-driven study on a daily basis to review the Microlearning subjects.
  • Participants may also choose to do advance previews of all 20 subjects as their time will allow.
  • Mentors and facilitators are available for consultation at a specified time daily.
  • Participants are required to showcase their projects as part of the knowledge-sharing activities. Confidential content may be confined to facilitator’s viewing.
  • Mentors and facilitators are available to provide immediate feedback to mini-projects through chat and discussion rooms or, if needed, by phone, Skype, or other alternatives.
  • A two-hour webinar, that is facilitator-led, is scheduled for each session focused on haring expert experiences, answering questions and providing guidance and feedback. Plus at least one hour for exercise that is independent and self-driven. Mentors are assigned to participants. A total of 3 hours for each session. Webinar sessions will use Zoom.
  • Participants will have individual and team progress analytics for self-learning management and feedback to mentors and facilitators.
  • It is recommended, although not required, that the participant has one or two peers from his/her company or personal contacts to be peer reviewers and collaborators. They will interact and provide feedback and review of the participant’s mini-projects. This allows the participant to experience how to work with a team.


Organizations use many forms of collaborative and learning platforms. The workshop does not require participants to use one nor does the workshop promote any specific software or platform. Instead, a proprietary system will be used to enable participants to have hands-on experience throughout the duration of the workshop. Participants will likewise be asked to review, explore or use their company’s or other providers' software and platforms for more meaningful application as needed.

The workshop is for team members who are responsible for helping employees, clients and customers apply knowledge and information.

The workshop is significantly beneficial to the following audiences:

  • Learning, training and elearning specialists, team members and leaders.
  • Team leaders of different functions within the company who desire to learn how to improve Microlearning knowledge sharing to support projects.
  • Subject matter experts (SMEs) who are responsible for implementing blended training and elearning.
  • Instructional designers who must convert content or create highly engaging elearning, performance support and on-the-job training.
  • Trainers, presenters, designers and developers who need to add high interaction and engagement to their training and elearning courses.
  • Managers and leaders who must lead and manage the design and development of Microlearning systems.
  • Customer support and product engineers involved with client interaction and product information distribution.

The workshop is an in-depth experience employing high interaction, varied multimedia lessons, mini-projects, coaching and mentoring. Due to the extensive need for facilitator and mentor interaction, workshop seats are limited. Reserve your seats early.
