What Does ‘Learning in the Flow of Work’ Even Mean? ‘How can microlearning help? Learning in the flow of work’ is about the learner quickly and easily accessing a short piece of relevant learning content while working. When Josh Bersin first proposed the idea in 2018, training and work were always separated into different silos, even though they are related.
But to do our jobs well, we require constant access to information. (We can’t possibly remember everything!) Learning and working are inextricably linked, and it was time to close the gap between them. ‘Learning in the flow of work’ is how we can do that.
But how can we provide learning in the flow of work? Through microlearning, of course! And what makes microlearning such a good fit here? By providing short, easy-to-access, easy-to-digest bursts of learning that learners can use whenever they need them. Each microlearning module focuses on a single learning objective, delivering content that is very specific and focused. This helps save learners time when they require information quickly.
Is there a better way than this to incorporate learning into the workflow?
