Today's society has fostered a continuous information flow that approaches us in many different ways. It seems clear that the progressive access to information has made it easier for people to consult it in real time and develop professionally through online courses.
However, this progressive facilitation of information has also led to the outspread of the concept of "information overload", in other words, the excess of information has also made its processing more difficult and has generated at the same time a feeling of rejection towards online training.
The advantages of online training are innumerable as it allows access from anywhere and at any time based on the needs of the learner. However, the development of this training content requires a constant process of design and creation to encourage the active participation of learners. As Julie Dirksen reflects in her book Design for How People Learn (2016), we cannot ensure that all people will learn, but we can facilitate better learning environments that allows learners to be the heroes of their own learning.
For this reason, the project LeaderSEEDS has created a training program based on the microlearning methodology. Microlearning arises from the need to address the excess in training content in order to improve the learning experience. This tool is used in educational contexts where workflows do not allow access to long training courses, allowing workers and learners to follow more concrete and affordable training itineraries.
This methodology is defined by its ease of access and fragmentation of the content into small clusters which facilitates the retention of information. There are numerous benefits to applying this methodology, among which the following stand out:
- Increases information retention capacity.
- Facilitates student participation.
- Allows for greater adaptation of training resources.
- Uses a large amount of visual resources.
- Increases the interaction between participants.
Our training programme is designed for digital leaders and third sector professionals who wish address the challenges of digital transformation in third sector organisations. Considering the workflow of these organisations, the training programme offers these "training pills" to cope with organisational changes and generate greater adaptability based on the needs of the organisations.
Will you join the change?
Visit our website https://www.thirdsectorleaders.eu/ and stay tuned for more information!
Shortly, the training contents will be available so that you can start developing the digital transformation process in your organisation.
