Did you ever wonder how to use more than one delivery methodology to enhance the effectiveness of your training? With technology allowing for increased opportunities to “flip the classroom” and reach our learners at the moment of need, knowing how to effectively blend learning programs is a critical skill for training professionals. Learn best practices for selecting and using the appropriate mix of innovative learning technologies to design effective blended solutions.

Blended learning occurs when the best delivery methodologies available for each specific learning objective are incorporated into a curriculum. While you may have been blending pre- and post-program elements into your training mix for years, the increasing prevalence of learning technologies and tools requires a more strategic look at the most effective ways to integrate delivery methodologies.  

This unique ATD program uses a blended learning approach to model the concepts taught in the workshop.  You’ll begin by completing a pre-work assignment that you’ll continue to work with throughout the course. Following the classroom-based workshop, you’ll reconvene with your peers in an online session. Throughout the learning experience, collaborate with your fellow participants and the facilitator(s) in an interactive discussion forum. And finally, one of the most important elements of the workshop is the opportunity to bring your own training program to adapt to the blended format through various application activities.

What Participants Are Saying
"This program really takes you through the entire process of blended learning. You participate as a learner but are also required to bring something related to your job to work on so you get the trainer/designer aspect as well."
"My favorite takeaways were the demonstration of Bloom's taxonomy in blended programs and the blended learning design process. It's a very comprehensive program for those starting out with blended learning."
"The Blended Learning Certificate program incorporates such a wide range of topics and considerations that I feel it would be a benefit to training professionals in almost any position. The program introduces helpful tools and a great thinking pattern for curriculum design that is purposeful in the use of technologies and modes to deliver the learning content and meet learning objectives. The program also has a very useful tie-in to thinking about the business and financial side of training delivery. I highly recommend this program!"
