Talent Development SIG Presents:


Microlearning & Gamification:

What Are Companies Doing With It?


We keep hearing about the importance of building microlearning and gamification into our training programs, especially for millennials.  For many organizations, though, it is a challenge to figure out how this integration works and how to measure the impact.  In this interactive panel presentation, we will discuss the fundamentals of building microlearning and gamification into your training programs to get the most impact.  In addition, we will discuss tips on how you can convince key stakeholders that these programs have impact. 


Join us for a networking breakfast to talk about these exciting tools to build your organization’s training impact!
