Imagine Learning Differently

Bite-Sized Instructional Design

Bite-sized Instructional Design

Millennial learners (and most others) want their learning to be delivered in bite-size chunks otherwise known as microlearning. In fact, in a recent survey it was found that 94% of the learners preferred and got more value from the bite-size learning than any other length of learning.

Learn to Lead has designed a number of microlearning curriculums, our most one was designed for an awesome company employing mainly millennials called The Unlimited (you may have heard The Unlimited Child Campaign). The curriculum aimed at developing the Emotional Intelligence of their call centre staff who ultimately are the front line of the company.

Our curriculum was a blended combination of face to face teaching (10-15 min sessions) and self-learning (10-15 min sessions). And of course, it followed the 5 commandments of bite-size learning…

Commandment 1- Stick to one idea: This was a journey through the solar system and at each STOP i.e. each planet, another idea was covered.

Commandment 2 – Engage: This curriculum was engagement on steroids. Peppered with activities, videos, games, music and of course Personal Challenges; this curriculum was super exciting!

Commandment 3 – Honour context and customize: All the examples, the scenarios, the case studies were all based on real Unlimited content that all the learners could 100% relate to.

Commandment 4: Space out the learning. The curriculum was designed to take place over 11 weeks, where we stopped at one planet a week, except we needed to spend 2 weeks at Jupiter.

Commandment 5: Create a user-friendly design. TED was the ‘STARman dude’ who guided us through the solar system and TED made sure we knew exactly what to do!
