Quest for the Perfect Blend

Program Overview

The Learning profession is undergoing a structural change with the technology delivery playing an increasing role. The world of “classroom” learning is being forced to adapt and accommodate the new realities of reduced budgets, flexible delivery and technology savvy learners. As with any change, there is fear of “letting go” of the comfort zone and explore other delivery modes and technologies.

Building blended learning capabilities can be made easier by:

  • Creating an understanding of the “new”.
  • Developing a scaffolding of new skills to continue the journey to the “new”.
  • Understanding organisational opportunities and constraints in implementing the “new”.
