Brush up your Blended learning skills

by | Mar 26, 2009 | Articles

Our Driving Business Benefits research has highlighted that we are expecting so much more from our investment in learning technologies during difficult times but the biggest barriers to success are our lack of skills in developing appropriate solutions – knowing how to create the right blends of learning technologies and interventions that deliver results. Yet less than 1 in 5 organisations provide any training on how to do this.

A number of organisations provide certification programmes for learning and development professionals in blended learning but the best known for learning and development professionals in the workplace are probably the CIPD and the Training Foundation.

For the CIPD, within their certificate of Blended learning, the medium is in the message – delegates get to know about blended learning while experiencing it in action.

And now there is a chance to experience this for free. The CIPD are holding a free online open evening – Wednesday 8 April from 19:00 – 20:00 and CIPD Training invites you to find out more about the Certificate in Blended Learning at an online open evening.

This will be a great opportunity to experience a virtual learning environment in action, you will be able to meet the tutors, hear live presentations, participate in online discussions and find out more.

To register for this online event, please call a CIPD Training customer service advisor on 020 8612 6202 or visit the website to find out more.

More information about the CIPD Training – Certificate in Blended Learning:

Blended learning is fast becoming the method of choice for the delivery of flexible, accessible, engaging and collaborative learning interventions that combine the very best of traditional learning and development approaches with opportunities provided by new technology.

Providing significant advantages in terms of flexibility, access and cost saving, it is essential for trainers to engage with blended learning techniques and to take full advantage of the opportunities available.
CIPD Training’s Certificate in Blended Learning offers L&D and training professionals with an opportunity to gain the skills and expertise to plan, develop and deliver blended learning solutions.  It is designed to build upon existing knowledge and experience to help you adapt to an environment in which there are literally dozens of approaches to every learning and development problem, many of which are best deployed in imaginative new combinations.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

When it comes to organisational culture, performance and learning, blind spots (or as they are often referred to ‘not seeing the light’) are usually found at the root of most of our problems with work today. These problems shape our day to day conversations, thinking, mood, judgement, decisions-making, or fundamental lack of them. These issues can make or break your workplace experience.

With 56% of organisations reporting that a lack of learner engagement is hindering the success of compliance within the business, it is clear that something needs to be done to highlight the value of these programmes to learners in order for them to engage with the content and retain the information.
