Do you have the right blend for your training? How do you define blended learning? Do you use the traditional view by combining eLearning with classroom learning? I challenge you to broaden your view of blended learning. Think about how much useful attending training would be if you conducted a learning activity to prepare for the the training, reflect on what you learned while in training, and take immediate action on what you learned with a follow-up activity. Just think of those learning activities were informal, experiential, and included a social and relationship-building component.
You would have an effective blended learning strategy. I just described my formula for an effective blended learning approach.
