LEO Learning has released its latest thought leadership ebook, exploring best practices around blended learning design.


LEO Learning, a market leader in global learning strategycontent, and technology, has released a new ebook that explores the intricacies and best practices of blended learning design, and how this has changed since mass remote working began. 

The 26-page ebook was written by LEO’s blended learning expert, Learning Consultant Alex Steer. Prior to the pandemic, blended learning was already widely used among the L&D community. With the added emphasis on technology as a means of learning delivery in the last year, this ebook provides useful advice and resources to enable engaging and effective blended learning design for the future. 

‘Making Blended Work: The 5 Key Elements of Effective Blended Learning Design’ discusses a variety of considerations for learning design including: 

  • Designing around how people already learn 
  • Creating blended learning journeys 
  • Managing blended learning at a distance 
  • Increasing uptake and engagement 
  • Measuring the components of blended learning

The ebook features learning design model diagrams, examples from LEO’s own work with clients, and a range of resources on various topics including learning games and virtual-first learning design. 

Alex Steer, Learning Consultant at LEO said: “This last year has shown us all the importance of technology in learning. Although blended learning was incredibly popular prior to mass remote working, it now feels like an inevitable part of learning in the future of most or all organizations. This ebook comes from a lot of research and what I’ve learned working with a huge range of clients to create engaging blended learning programs before and during the pandemic”.

Making Blended Work: The 5 Key Elements of Effective Blended Learning Design’ is now available to download on the LEO Learning website.
