Nudge-Learning. Is it micro-learning? Is it slow-drip learning? Is it work-flow learning? Whatever it is, it's become another hot new term being used amongst instructional design communities. It's a new one for me, so of course we needed to learn more about it. I reached out on LinkedIn, commented on an article about it, and found Amy Parent from Salience Learning.

Amy is an experienced and passionate instructional designer and learning technologist who loves to experiment with new ideas, concepts, and trends. She's been experimenting with nudge-learning and so we asked her to join us for a discussion on the topic.

We covered everything we could from beginning to end. What it is. What it isn't. What are some current ideas for implementation. And what Amy has discovered during her experimentation.

And you may find out that you’ve already been using some nudging techniques without even knowing it.  

Let us know what you thought of this insightful discussion.
