Aspire launches microlearning modules targeted at the childcare industry. Aspire Learning Resources is a not-for-profit company who specialise in the development of competency-based training and assessment resources for VET (Vocational Education and Training).
Microlearning is a way of teaching and delivering content to learners in small, very specific bursts. In other words, they focus on one learning outcome at a time to quickly close skill and knowledge gaps, plus aid retention. The benefits of microlearning, compared to the regular style of learning, include this focus on one subject matter. For example, this helps the learners to educate themselves on just one topic at a time, which makes it easier to learn.
Childcare professionals develop the modules as well as filming for all videos in operating early learning centres.
Creation of these modules bring learning to life through content, such as:
- video demonstrations of key concepts, giving learners an insight into the real life experiences of child care professionals
- unscripted responses to FAQs from current industry professionals
- interactive scenarios and activities to assess knowledge
The microlearning modules are in use in conjunction with any training material. In addition, they are the perfect tool to increase volume of learning.
