Microlearnings

PCWTA offers microlearning courses to child welfare social workers as a way to provide training content and learning support in short, targeted segments.

What is a microlearning?
Microlearning refers to micro-perspectives of learning, education, training and skill development. The approaches followed for assessment of microlearning are multidimensional and holistic in nature and need based in particular cases. Microlearnings are ideal for when learners need extra time spent on a step of a process or additional development in a specific area.
