Are we in the Age of Soundbite Learning? Gerry Griffin, Skill Pill

Micro-learning has come of age and is increasingly becoming a preferred route for non-compliance
training, particularly soft skills.
The question we want to address in this webinar is whether micro-learning is intellectually rigorous,
as compared with long-form learning [e-learning] or face to face training.
We want to explore the following:

  • The cultural context of Gen Y and Gen Z in the organisation
  • Lowering attention spans, outlined in Skill Pill’s Whitepaper
  • Different ways in which we are learning - how technology is taking on some of the ‘heavy-shifting’ in the learning pathway. Technology is no longer just a delivery mechanism, it is also a mechanism for recollecting important information.
  • The cultural trends that drive this age of short-form learning; Twitter, YouTube, Soundbite.
  • Creating learning pathways in a short-form, modular environment; with content now packed into micro-learning instances, do we need to revise our ways of measuring learning?
  • And finally, how can instructional designers maximise the attention span of the real-estate of short-form learning?

It is important to remember that we are not only in the age of short-form learning, but also in the age of disposable learning, in the sense that we don’t necessarily store information anymore; we can simply call it down, on demand, via technology.
