Microlearning and Quality for Lifelong Learning in the Digital Age

During the Open Education Week 2020 I hosted a webinar o behalf of EDEN on Microlearning and Quality for Lifelong Learning in the Digital Age. EDEN hosted a sereis of webinares during the OEW2020, and my contribution on the 6th March 2020 was one of those and tha last one durong the week.

I had a great team  presenting on microlearning and myself on microlearning, OER amd quality. The presenters were Badrul Kahn, Rene Corbeil, Maria Elena Corbeil and myself.

 The theme for the webinar was presented as:

With the rise of technology, combined with the explosive growth of social media over the last decade, the concept of personalized mobile learning through bite-sized learning snippets has come to the fore. In addition, in the context of major global challenges such as globalization, digitalization and demographic change, and learning for all, there is an urgent need for a variety of learning opportunitiesand pathways for lifelong and life-wide learning. The concept of microlearninghas been around since about 2000, but what is it and how to make learning in bite-sized form successful, attractive and effective, as it to be just right for meand learning in education, training, achievement and talent developmentcontexts. Micro-learning offers opportunities to incorporate, integrate and personalize cost-effective and meaningful learning and training solutions for eachindividual in terms of personal, environmental and organizational performanceimprovement. During this webinar with invited experts in this field there will be opportunities to learn more about the growing field of micro-learning / bite-sizedlearning snippets and quality for life-ong learning.

What Is Microlearning
•While there’s no official microlearning definition, all microlearning-based training shares one keycharacteristic: brevity. This could either be small learningunits or short-term learning activities.
•Microtraining delivers short bursts of content for learners to study at their convenience. Content can take many forms, from text to full-blown interactive multimedia, but shouldalways be short.
Microlearning and  mobile learning goes hand in had as it is just for me and just in time leanring, it can be described as Snippets and or the similarities wwith lego, you can pcik and mis and or have it as  aboz with pieces to build on in your own pace.
Some benefits of Micro-learning

1. It’s Faster To Deliver

2. It’s More Affordable

3. It’s Flexible

4. Learners Find It More Engaging

5. It Boosts Knowledge Retention

6. It Gives Learners More Freedom

The presentation from Badrul Kahn, Rene Corbeil, and Maria Elena Corbeil  was based on the foerthcoming book on the Microlearnong framework developed by Badrul Kahn.

My presentation focuse on  microlearning and OER and  on the UN UNESCO OER recommendadtions adopted 25 November 2019.


I was happy and proud to recieve the Contributor Badge - EDEN NAP Webinar "Microlearning and Quality for Lifelong Learning in the Digital Age" (06.03.2020)
