Designing Bite Sized Learning

February 19, 2016 - Less than a minute read

For too long training and learning events have been too large, requiring learners to try (and usually fail) to remember large pieces of content. Bite sized learning provides content in smaller easily consumed chunks of content.

‘Divide each difficulty into as many parts as is feasibly possible and necessary to resolve it’ (Descarte).

Descartes must have been a fortune teller because he describes our modern lifestyle. No longer does a whole music album get purchased, rather just a song. People read articles not the whole magazine. For the modern day learner, bite size is the right size.

About the Workshop

This full-day workshop will examine the methods of micro-learning content design that facilitates quick transfer of knowledge and application.

Brain based study has shown that “physiologically, your neurons are keen and alert for no more than 20 consecutive minutes. At the end of those 20 minutes, your neurons have gone from full-fledged alert to total collapse”. Not only is bite sized learning beneficial for your brain, it provides an opportunity to learn in a time effective manner in our busy day to day lives.

We will introduce a range of tools and tips that learning designers might use to create more bite sized learning objects, that can be stand alone resources or part of a greater learning experience.
