Blended learning can be implemented across different types of training situations. It’s not about which is more important; eLearning or instructor-led training, It is about finding the balance that works for the learner and delivers results for your organization! Here are just a few examples of how blended learning can work for your most common training needs.
This type of training really lends itself to more of an eLearning approach. Partner with eLearning course designers who have the ability to design the process as life-like as necessary at any step; from simple need- to- know information to more decision based simulations. They should also excel at including alternatives/options based on variables. The eLearning course will serve as both initial instruction and just-in-time refresher, to revisit as necessary before actually operating or applying the process.
Instructor led sessions (whether classroom or distance learning) can be used at strategic intervals to accomplish a variety of follow-up activities: Q&A, New Applications for the Process, Process Improvement, or Case Studies.
Partner with eLearning course designers who have the ability to add engagement and interactivity to typically text-heavy content. It helps to achieve results if the learner not only learns to comply but is also interested!
The course can be supported by sessions with SMEs and peers to encourage better understanding/application. Learners can also form into cohorts; meeting-up online to discuss problems or doubts and find the answers among themselves. Both the SME and cohorts sessions can be monitored and tracked by facilitators. These last two suggestions might be dictated by how important demonstrating compliance is to your organization.
