If you’re a manager in charge of a team, you know how important it is for everyone to keep learning and growing. Microlearning is a method that uses short, focused lessons and can be an excellent choice for all budgets. Here’s how microlearning can help your team pick up new skills and improve at work:
1. Time Management
Microlearning is all about making good use of time. Your team can learn something valuable in just a few minutes, which helps them stay productive and learn how to prioritise tasks better.
2. Self-Directed Learning
With microlearning, your team members take charge of their learning. This builds their confidence and helps them become more responsible and involved in their work. Viva la self-direction!
In today’s fast-paced work environment, being able to adapt is critical. Microlearning keeps your team up-to-date and ready to handle changes and new ideas. Plus, it's mobile-friendly — you can fit in a PepTalk wherever and whenever you have the time — on the bus, or while waiting to pick the kids up from school.
4. Critical Thinking
Microlearning breaks big topics into smaller parts, making it easier for your team to think critically and solve problems. That's why our PepTalk expert content ranges on average, from 3 to 5 minutes or as a series of short videos.
Microlearning exposes your team to different ways of thinking and solving problems. This helps them become better at finding solutions when challenges arise.
6. Digital Literacy
Since microlearning mostly happens online, it also helps your team improve at using digital tools and resources. Without adequate digital literacy, it is not possible to participate in the economy and the digital society, particularly keeping in mind the digital transformation that the world of work is experiencing in the content and the organisation. Beyond the work environment, it also affects how people live and communicate (Bejaković and Mrnjavac, 2020).
7. Continuous Learning
Microlearning builds the habit of continuous learning, ensuring your team’s skills stay sharp and up-to-date. According to the World Economic Forum, the average half-life of skills is now less than five years, and in some tech fields, it's as low as two and a half years.
Finally, microlearning helps build resilience. Your team learns to stick with their learning goals, even when things get tough — contributing to both personal and organisational resilience.
Microlearning is more than just a fast way to learn; it’s a tool that can help your team grow and do better at work. By developing these ten skills, your team will be ready to take on new challenges and achieve more.
