Rapid technological change has led to a skills half-life of just 2.5 years. At the same time, the way people consume information, and thus how they learn, has changed as well. Attention is a diminishing resource in the digital age, and workers are falling further and further behind. To defeat these twin challenges, we learning professionals must lead a revolution. Our secret weapon? Microlearning.

In this session you will learn from the experience of delivering over 3,000,000 lessons to hundreds of thousands of learners in 190 countries using microlearning. You will explore insights into what makes microlearning the optimal learning foundation for today’s learners and how to create it effectively.
