Microlearning: A faculty's experience

posted on 2023-09-27, 23:26 authored by Chien Ching LeeChien Ching Lee

Feedback and practice are key to improving students’ communication skills. However, limited curriculum time and large student enrolments make this difficult. How then can we scale the curriculum effectively? This chapter looks at microlearning - a performance-focused, interactive, bite-sized unit that provides for spaced review and automated feedback, which is delivered in a scalable manner via online platforms. The author shares her experience as faculty and project manager in designing and delivering micromodules over five years, specifically using Dolaskinsi and Reynold’s microlearning model and Khan’s e-learning framework, the challenges faced, and lessons learned. The author recommends best practices for microlearning projects focusing on student engagement, learner control, and the development of simple skills.
