About this Episode

In episode 125 of Teaching Python, hosts Sean Tibor and Kelly Schuster-Paredes dive into the concept of micro learning, discussing its benefits in fostering long-term memory retention and profound comprehension. The hosts advocate formalizing micro learning--breaking down topics into approachable, bite-sized segments--and discuss its application in the move towards more immediate, more specific, and ultimately more impactful and rewarding feedback. The discussion also covers the idea of 'laddering' a series of micro learning experiences to achieve larger, long-term objectives, the value of diverse learning materials, and even the role of badges and credentials in incentivizing continuous education.
