Microlearning Strategies: Another Approach to Virtual Workshop Delivery

August 13, 2020

As the public workforce system continues to redefine and refine remote service delivery, many local workforce areas are converting their traditional in-person workshop content on job search skills into recorded PowerPoints they post to the Internet. For many job seekers, this can be overwhelming, providing them with too much information to absorb at a time when they are already stressed by information overload. Microlearning — a strategy that breaks longer content into smaller, hyper-focused lessons — offers an alternative approach that staff can use to deliver job search skill development programming. 

A new blog post by Amanda Bombino, Research Intern and Liana Volpe, Research Associate at the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, examines the concept and benefits of microlearning. It also provides detailed descriptions of two microlearning strategies — audiovisual media-based microlearning and interactive microlearning — and the technology tools that support microlearning strategy development and delivery. 

The Heldrich Center and the Bloustein School do not endors eany of the proprietary products mentioned in the blog post.
