Microlearning in the Digital Age: The Design and Delivery of Learning in Snippets
April 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Microlearning can be viewed as a single objective-focused, outcome-based, stand-alone, meaningful, and interactive learning unit delivered in bite-sized snippets (i.e., a short modular format) either digitally (i.e., via computer, tablet, or mobile phone) or non-digitally (i.e., as via a flashcard or booklet). Designing and delivering microlearning requires thoughtful analysis and investigation of how to use the learning media’s potential in concert with instructional design principles and issues critical to various dimensions of the learning environment. In this keynote presentation, microlearning will be discussed from the perspective of a comprehensive framework encompassing the eight critical learning issues of learning including: pedagogical, technological, interface design, evaluation, management, resource support, ethical considerations and institutional. Attributes and Characteristics of microlearning will be discussed. Examples of microlearning in practice will also be demonstrated.
