What is Blended Learning? Blended learning is an approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods. It requires the physical presence of both teacher and student, with some elements of student control over time, place, path, or pace.
There are four types of blended learning models for corporate training. Firstly, face-to-face driver model.This model is the closest to traditional classroom training. This approach usually means that not everyone in the class will take additional online training, as it mainly targets the individual needs of those learners who are struggling or would like to go above and beyond.
Then, the online driver model is in direct opposition to brick-and-mortar studying, as it completely relies on digital delivery of the training. It combines both synchronous training such as live webinars, peer-to-peer training sessions and asynchronous training as self-paced study of e-courses.
After that, rotation models involve breaking a group of learners into smaller units to perform different types of tasks at different stages in turns. It allows learners with different types of learning styles to get the maximum benefit from the training.
Finally, flipped the classroom. The motto of this model is “online learning, offline application.” It can be done in the form of discussions, case studies, or project work. The instructors’ task is to guide the learners by answering questions and supporting them in the application of course concepts.
