LEO Learning has launched a new blended learning ebook highlighting the big benefits of blends. Entitled ‘Why blended learning works (and can work for you!)’, the ebook is authored by LEO Learning’s HR and Learning Director, Imogen Casebourne, who is well-known in the industry for her thought leadership, white papers and speaking sessions.
Imogen, who’s currently working on her doctorate on mobile learning through the University of Oxford, draws on two decades of experience for the ebook, which can be accessed on the LEO Learning website.
“Definitions of blended learning have sometimes been quite simplistic and technology-centric, perhaps involving a single workshop and some online pre-work. And sometimes that might be exactly what’s needed,” said Imogen. “However, people are now moving to a more learner-centric definition, with a focus on a blend of learning activities, some or all of which may or may not be supported by technology.”
The ebook goes into more detail on that more modern view of blended learning.
“We know from our conversations with clients that there is huge demand for blends,” added Imogen. “Blended learning programmes have the capacity to create multi-faceted learning environments that support learners’ needs and aid retention.”
‘Why blended learning works (and can work for you!)’ contains LEO Learning’s latest thinking on blends and includes:
- The history and definitions of blended learning
- Case studies, research and anecdotal evidence of effective blends
- The seven main benefits of a blended learning programme
