Implementing microlearning is essential to establish a dynamic and adaptive company, which is vital in any shifting and fluid market. However, in order to effectively implement a microlearning strategy, particular steps must be taken to successfully adopt this strategy for optimal training of your employees.
Implementing a microlearning program in the wake of the millennial age potentially may have you feeling somewhat like a fish out of water. It’s a very different style of learning, but that’s where we come in.
The most effective and efficient way to find relevant information is punching in a few words into your favourite search engine, providing you with hundreds of results all relevant to your key words. This achieves instant gratification, important for motivation, and the contribution of enjoyment and ease to learning.
Microlearning has various focuses on certain learning objectives, dependent on different modules. Channeling relevant and connected information into one module allows employees to focus entirely on one specific topic, enabling them to exercise their knowledge retention ability. This type of learning facilitates the physical application of course material to employees’ roles within the company, catering to a variety of learning styles and skillsets.
The implementation and use of microlearning also promotes an effective work life balance, which is particularly important for our physical and mental health. A work life balance sustains motivation and engagement, fostering diligence and objective achievement in the workplace.
The return on investment of microlearning for business is undeniably high and worthwhile, given the lower costs for training module development, as well as enhanced skills of employees. The modules are also applicable to ongoing training, not just utilised for the onboarding of new staff. Information can be chopped and changed, dependent on employee needs and changes in the company and industry as a whole. An element of dynamism can be achieved with microlearning modules, key to keeping up with an ever changing workforce in which training methods evolve at rapid rates.
The bottom line is that implementing microlearning is incredibly valuable to overall company success through a modern approach to corporate training. Microlearning positively evolves and strengthens staff training into a basis for greater retention of new knowledge, in a shorter amount of time.
