50149436_s.jpgWhen we introduce a new topic, we often start with a webinar. The ubiquitous technology and common virtual classroom delivery format seems to be an easy way to engage, and teach, a large audience in a short time.

We know the webinar format has its challenges. Generally, potential learners enroll with the best intentions of attending, but understand that a recording will be available if there is a scheduling conflict. Many of us have an email folder containing link after link after link of webinar recordings that we hope to watch one day, when we have the time.

And when learners do attend a live session, they automatically put themselves into a “listen only” mindset; intending to multitask their way through the session with the hope that they will pick up the important points. They don’t have an expectation that they need to participate to absorb the content.

Using Microlearning to Pull Learners to Your Content

Training Magazine Network Session Recap 

21177809_s.jpgSeveral months ago, Jennifer Hofmann’s presentation “How to Engage Modern Learners,” explored the differences between Push training and Pull learning. Traditional training focuses on the Push – formal scheduled programs that provide planned, siloed instruction. Pull learning, on the other hand, uses a decentralized, learner-centric approach to make content readily available in a specific moment of learning need. Both Push and Pull play key roles in the modern learning culture.

Training Magazine Network’s audience found this learning event so helpful, they invited Jennifer back to present “Pulling Learners to Your Content: How to Make it Work” on June 8. In this follow-up session, Jennifer discussed learner engagement in modern workplace learning, the five moments of need learners experience, and moving Pull learning from theory to practice.

This blog post shares a step-by-step approach you can use for creating microlearning Push activities, as well as an example of how to do so. To review all of the information covered in the June 8th session, access the full recording here.
