Coming Soon. Staff are in process of developing a microlearning program based on the MCH Navigator's 5-Minute MCH and Public Health Pronto projects that will allow learning to occur in short, weekly segments that promote incremental, paced, and communal acquisition of skills and knowledge. Over 1,800 Title V professionals are currently enrolled in MCH Navigator microlearning programs.
Each week during the MCH Evidence microlearning program, staff will send out emails:
- In week 1 of each month, participants will learn about a new evidence-based/informed topic or strategy through a 5-minute video podcast. They will learn what knowledge and skill sets each competency contains and how they are important for daily work. Content will be drawn from the updated evidence analysis reports (Goal 2).
- In week 2, participants will receive five lessons learned from ongoing TA (quick tips) to support the strategy (Goal 1). They will be encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences when addressing similar issues in the field.
- In week 3, participants will receive five example ESMs for putting knowledge into practice. They can share their experiences implementing the ESMs in their workplace on the project website or through email (Goal 4). Resources to augment learning will be drawn and presented from the MCH Digital Library (Goal 5).
- In week 4, participants will hear a 5-minute presentation from a member of the Team of Experts (Goal 3) and will have the opportunity to ask questions and dialogue with other health professionals in a 5-minute follow-up to the speaker.
These activities have demonstrated positive effects on state Title V participants by ensuring that learning is quick, highly structured, easy to complete, and occurs as part of a group, allowing participants to share insights with and pose questions to fellow professionals in the field.
