Bob Mosher warns us: “We must have the all-important conversation about a new term or modality before we inflict it on learners. Every time we arrive at a label and methodology, a conference speaker or vendor throws out a conflicting term. Not only is this frustrating for learning professionals, it clouds the landscape for learners and those who pay our salaries.”
What is microlearning? New? Old? Window dressing on existing approaches? How do you design it in a scalable way and measure effectiveness? How does it complement existing approaches? What technologies enable it effectively?
“We are obligated to answer these and many other questions if we’re going to introduce yet another approach to the already crowded learning and support ecosystem.”
