The term ‘blended learning’ has been around for 20+ years and despite changing technology and a constant flow of new trends in L&D, the concept has never really gone away. Arguably, in today’s world of multiple channels, digital resources and social platforms, the idea of blending all these and more to create a seamless learning programme is now more important and more valuable than ever before.
The choice of media, modes and delivery pathways available to L&D for reaching and engaging people with learning has never been richer. The challenge now, however, is to create an approach that feels multi-layered but seamless and easy for your people to discover and interact with anywhere they want to. And content is only part of the story. As we will hear from Helena King of TES Global, modern learning today also needs to create time and space for coaching, mentoring, discussion and reflection if you want to have the maximum impact.
Nigel Paine’s session on 21st Century Learning: Building a Modern Learning Environment takes place on day one of the conference, Wednesday 12 Feb at 13:55, chaired by Helena King, Head of Online Learning, TES Institute.
21st Century Learning: Building a Modern Learning Environment, covers:
Creating coherent experiences regardless of the media and delivery methods
Mapping learning content alongside reflection, held together by mentoring to create a better experience and more effective learning
Focusing on content as only one element of delivery
Sustaining engagement during extended learning experiences
Booking for the Learning Technologies 2020 Conference is available via the event website, with tickets priced at £1,295 + VAT.
