Blended learning occurs when the best delivery methodologies available for each specific learning objective are incorporated into a curriculum. While you may have been blending pre- and post-program elements into your
training mix for years, the increasing prevalence of learning technologies and tools requires a more strategic look at the most effective ways to integrate delivery methodologies.
You’ll begin by completing a pre-work assignment that you’ll continue to work with throughout the course. Following the classroom-based workshop, you’ll reconvene with your peers in an online session. Throughout the learning experience, collaborate with your fellow participants and the facilitator(s) in an interactive discussion forum. And finally, one of the most important elements of the workshop is the opportunity to bring your own training program to adapt to the blended format through various application activities.
By end of this program you will be able to:
Define blended learning.
List the various formats and media that can be mixed for an optimal blended learning approach.
Integrate blended learning into the traditional instructional design process.
