With faster cycles of technological change and innovation comes a greater urgency for upskilling. Thankfully, there is a way to meet the skill needs of the future while taking into account the needs of busy, 21st-century workers: microlearning.
For most of us – all of us, arguably – adulthood sneaks up on us and ensnares us in its inherent ‘busyness.’ We fall quickly and unknowingly into its routines, schedules and expectations, often taking little or no time to stop and reevaluate our direction. It happens to the best of us.
One of the most commonly used buzzwords in the training industry, “microlearning”, has officially been trademarked by the education technology company Grovo – granted by the U.S Patent and Trademark Office.
