Microlearning is facing a bright future. Not focusing on content memorisation anymore but including all kinds of learning activities in short-term technology supported educational settings, it combines technological with pedagogical challenges.
New study program at IMB/DUK
Our new study program “Mobile and Work Integrated MicroLearning” will start on 9th of December 2014. It aims to professionalize its participants for this new educational challenge. Graduates will be able to develop, implement and supervise technology based learning environments in organisations and turn them into sustainable learning organisations.
Increasing expectations at the workplace and the growing demand for new knowledge are defining characteristics of 21st century society. The need for employee training in all professional sectors and industries is on the rise while timely resources for educational in-house programs are becoming more limited. Thus making mobile and flexible learning methods essential for human resource development and learning with mobile devices increasingly popular in part-time study programs. MicroLearning is suited for the just-in-time performance-based learning requirements of today’s workforce.
With MicroLearning, education, knowledge acquisition and knowledge sharing becomes an ongoing activity without academic attitude but efficient use of breaks and free time for learning with measurable and documented learning success.
