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.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
