    #13 Making MicroLearning a reality, Q&A with JD Dillon

    #13 Making MicroLearning a reality, Q&A with JD Dillon

    Microlearning is a popular topic in learning right now. Some people swear by it whilst others seem frustrated at the notion of a simplistic approach to learning.

    In this episode JD Dillon - a savant on the topic - answers questions from the podcast audience. We discuss what microlearning is, why some observers of microlearning are not so keen on the term and the need for context when applying a microlearning strategy. Most importantly, we discuss how the principles can be applied to day-to-day learning. These can be used in any area of learning!
