Why your approach to learning should be blended?
And no we are not talking about mixing cocktails or smoothies but mixing up the training opportunities you offer your teams. Blended learning is recognizing that to give the best transfer of knowledge and skills to your teams you need to have a range of learning opportunities available to them.
When blended learning was first discussed as a concept there was a focus of offering traditional classroom-based training with elearning. However blended learning can encompass much more than that.
To make learning most effective a wide variety of opportunities to not only take initial training but follow up, evaluate and catch up need to happen. Blended learning can help with this. For example an overview elearning module could be taken before attendance at a training workshop and followed up with a webinar Q and A session a month later with short bite-sized videos being released to employees a regular intervals.
Blended learning fits into todays workplace cultures. It also recognizing that learning is not a one-off event.
