Halfway between face-to-face and digital training, Blended Learning is revolutionising tomorrow's learning! Definition and example of a tried and tested method.
For some time now, new learning methods have been flooding into the vocabulary of vocational training, with names that are all more incomprehensible than each other. We hear about them on every street corner, but what are they in practice? Sometimes called "blended learning" or "hybrid learning", Blended Learning places the learner at the heart of the training process by combining e-learning and face-to-face training.
Good news. Your company is going international and you are increasingly using foreign suppliers. Even better, you're opening a subsidiary in London and recruiting local employees. Unfortunately, most of your employees based in France have difficulty speaking English. So you decide to train them, but some of your employees are often on the road, while others rarely leave their workstations.
This is where Blended Learning comes in! The principle is simple: organise a face-to-face training session with an English trainer and the employees present in the company, film it and share it with your travelling colleagues, for example.
Another significant advantage is that many training courses, such as English, require practice to be assimilated correctly. Blended Learning allows you to provide your employees with theoretical training: the possibility of making videos where the learner has to repeat by recording himself, vocabulary quizzes that are both fun and effective, gap-filling texts, etc...
Theories that you can reinforce by organizing face-to-face training sessions, where your employees can practice in groups, hold conversations and most importantly benefit from the trainer's live advice.
TO SUM UP, what is Blended Learning?
In fact, Blended Learning selects all the advantages of classical training and combines them with those of e-learning to create a tailor-made learning method!
No industry is immune to the digital revolution. Without exception, all of them are faced with numerous changes that require a complete rethinking of the training process.
