This post explores the timing of microlearning in the workplace. It's a good point. The centrepiece is the pair of diagrams of mis-aligned and aligned microtraining (figures 2 and 3). The overall point applies to learning generally, I think: that it needs to be aligned to the current interests and motivations of the learner. Failing to do this creates an environment where learning is a distraction from the events and work of the day, rather than something helpful and supportive. As Alex Khurgin writes, "The moments of need become motivational anchor points surrounded with microlearning experiences and resources. They also present entry points for difficult challenges like addressing bias by tying them to specific events, such as an upcoming interview."
