Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Professional learning | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement | Professional learning | Scoop.it

All too often, training programs are developed just for training’s sake, just to check the training box. There must be a clear business objective that a training program is attempting to solve. If the business need isn’t there, the program shouldn’t be either.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, May 18, 4:10 AM

This is quite corporate business training directed, but would also apply to any teacher training scenario.

Enrico De Angelis's curator insight, May 18, 5:01 AM

Planning courses for a big US corporation around the world is not the same of a residential three years PhD Program.

Nevertheless, the 13 proposed questions make an interesting reference list.

Are they worth to be considered also in our european PhD Programs and their courses? I think so.

 

1. The problem we want to solve is to be clearly stated
2. The quality of the training project too ("success")
3. Who pays for the project (this is more difficult, in Academy)
4. The audience composition
5. Their attitudes and expectations (often disregarded)
6. The actual use of the transferred skills
7. How to track their learning engagement
8. How to cope with tools and practices of the audience
9. Flexibility of the training program

10. Existing content and knowledge to be leveraged
11. Resources to be provide
12. Milestones and dates
13. Budget (cost, time, and quality)
