T&D: What Is the Ratio of Time Spent on Telling Stories…

What Is the Ratio of Time Spent on Telling Stories

… to the Time Spent on necessary Information and potential Demonstration and absolutely needed Application Exercises?

Especially in this Old World newly relabeled concept of MicroLearning.

Because: Not Every Chunk of Training Needs a Story to Set It Up.

Is there too much Applications Avoidance?

MicroLearning for Initial Learning

Is as short as possible – but – as long as needed to build initial awareness, knowledge, skill and Performance Competence – as agreed to with the client and stakeholders.

Perhaps a Story is needed to set up that Training for Learning. Perhaps not.

MicroLearning for Spaced Reinforcement Learning

Is as short as possible to create a recall of information – or to hone a skill. Or both. Or one one time and the other another time. To combat the Forgetting Curve.

Time Constraints

If the time is constrained – then I’d almost always focus the learning on an active Application what is being presented – rather than a more passive Story Set Up.
