June 16 @ 2pm ET (New York) (UTC -4)

Work life is just not what it used to be. Our training needs to reflect that. Employees' work conditions change, often unpredictably: one day in the office, one day at home, one day on the road.... we need a learning model that adapts to where people need to learn while also designing content in a way that meets the business goals. Maximizing audience engagement means we need to merge the concepts of blended learning and hybrid learning. 

Blended learning: program designs that combine live and self-directed content, where the delivery technology is determined by the performance objectives:

  1. Hybrid Learning: live events with participants in the office, at home, or on the road. This two-hour collaborative workshop includes a scenario-based breakout session where your team, using a template designs a blended program for the hybrid environment. You’ll leave with an action plan to help your team design a plan for success.  
  2. The program will be supported by an eLearning module, infographic, and multiple related readings–all mapped out in a Blended Learning Campaign.

Guiding Questions 

  1. What is the relationship between Hybrid Learning and Blended Learning? 
  2. How do I answer the “Who, What, Where, When and How” of this complex environment? 
  3. What is a blended learning campaign? 
  4. How can I design a program that adapts to the composition of the audience? 
  5. What skills does a facilitator need to facilitate blended learning in the hybrid world?

I found my course facilitators to be cooperative, smart, and self-motivating. I’m already finding opportunities to use my new skills on the job, like recognizing the value a producer adds to a virtual learning event.
I have a better understanding of the tools and techniques available to virtual classroom facilitators. Course producer Cindy provided first-hand insight, and tricks-of-the-trade that I will be able to use in the future. 
The online content, live instruction, and takeaway materials all played a crucial role in the absorption of the material and the building of my skills.
