In defence of microlearning

This week’s #TheGPPodcast covers the thorny topic of microlearning. We struggle to even define microlearning, so does the term have any real value? Is it ‘chunking’? ‘Performance support’? Can we agree on a definition that makes it useful? If so, what is it, and how can we help clients understand it?

Ross Garner and Owen Ferguson thrash out the answers with microlearning aficionado Shannon Tipton.
