Blended learning has become a common industry buzzword, but there is still significant confusion about the best practices for designing and implementing blended programs. The growing abundance of learning content types and delivery technologies increase the risk of creating a jumble of mixed media rather than an effective learning experience. Nevertheless, organizations that strive to make learning an integral part of doing business require advanced blended learning constructs to optimize performance impact. Skillsoft’s Blended by Design methodology can provide a design structure that addresses eight dimensions of adult learning that recognize varying learner needs and preferences. 


In this session, participants will learn about this blueprint and how to apply the principles to their specific projects. In addition, we’ll share tips for program implementation that can ensure high completion rates and learner satisfaction.


This 90 minute workshop will be facilitated by Calvin McKnight, our Director of Solution Services, and is intended to provide you with resources that can help you engage with your internal stakeholders on the next stage of your learning journey.  Examples of successful blended learning programs will be shared to illustrate the type of impact meaningful blended solutions can have.
